Things remain tight at the top of the FA Women's Championship after the top four teams all recorded victories on Sunday, meaning they are still covered by just three points.
These teams are still led by Aston Villa, who won 3-2 away to Coventry Utd to maintain their status as the last remaining unbeaten team. Villa were made to work hard though by the home side, despite taking a tenth minute lead through Shania Hayles. Amber Hughes levelled five minutes later but Villa were soon back in front thanks to Nadine Hanssen and Kerri Walsh made it three just before half time with an audacious 20-yard chip. Shannon O'Brien headed Coventry back into the game early in the second half but Villa saw the game out for their sixth win in seven matches, which keeps them one point ahead at the top.
London City Lionesses continue to breathe down Villa's necks in second place, after they notched up a 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace. The first half was goalless but halfway through the second, Ashleigh Goddard gave Palace the lead. The Lionesses hit back to equalise four minutes later, Vanessa Susanna scoring barely a minute after coming on as a substitute, and the comeback was completed when Elizabeta Ejupi netted the winning goal, four minutes from time.
Sheffield Utd returned to winning ways with a 2-1 success at Lewes. Jade Pennock kept up her great run of form by giving the Blades a twelfth minute lead and Veatriki Sarri added a second ahead of half time. Katie Rood gave Lewes hope when she pulled a goal back on the hour mark but the Rookettes could not prevent United from notching up a fifth win in six league games.
Durham Women had started the round of fixtures with a 3-1 victory over London Bees, which had momentarily taken them to the top of the table. Sarah Robson headed the Wildcats into a first half lead, which was cancelled out as a counter attack from the Bees saw Amelia Hazard score an equaliser. Durham went back in front just after the hour, when Beth Hepple netted from the penalty spot, and the game remained in the balance until four minutes from time when Iris Achterhof scored a decisive third.
Charlton Athletic and Leicester City met each other in an important clash at the other end of the table and shared the spoils, battling out a 1-1 draw. The Addicks took the lead on the stroke of half time when Charlie Devlin converted a low cross from Charlie Estcourt, but their hopes of a first league win of the season were dashed with twenty minutes remaining, when Lachante Paul headed in the equaliser from a Paige Bailey-Gayle cross.
