Aston Villa march on at the top of the Championship table after winning 2-1 away to London Bees.
Villa started the game well and took the lead when Amy West scored at the far post from a corner. The Bees hit back to level the scores through a well taken effort from Lauren Pickett a minute before half time but Emma Follis curled home a free kick from 25 yards to seal an eighth win in nine games for leaders Villa.
The two teams who started the day immediately below Aston Villa in the table met each other and it was Sheffield Utd who won 2-1 at London City Lionesses to keep the gap at three points. Katie Wilkinson put the Blades in front with eight minutes on the clock, before the Lionesses equalised early in the second half, Vyan Sampson scoring from close range following a corner. But the game was settled fifteen minutes through an excellent solo goal by Olivia Fergusson.
Durham Women got back to winning ways with a 3-2 success away to Coventry Utd. Molly Sharpe slotted home to give the Wildcats the lead in the first half and Kathryn Hill doubled their advantage on the stroke of half time, heading in from a corner. Coventry came back into the game after the break and were rewarded when Beth Merrick reduced the arrears with a neat lob. In a dramatic finish to the game, Megan Bell scored what proved to be the winning strike for Durham in injury time, despite Becky Anderson pulling a goal back at the other end a minute later.
Defeat for Coventry means they drop back into the bottom two, due to Leicester City winning 2-0 against Blackburn Rovers. Both sides traded chances during the first half but six minutes before the interval, Leicester went in front albeit in fortuitous fashion, a Hayley James header hitting the bar before rebounding off an unfortunate Alex Taylor and back into her own net. The Foxes wrapped up the win with seventeen minutes remaining, Annabel Blanchard's pass releasing Lachante Paul, who ran through on goal before beating Rovers goalkeeper Fran Stenson with a low shot.
Crystal Palace and Charlton Athletic shared a 1-1 draw in their South London derby match but the point was not quite enough to take the Addicks off the bottom of the table. A well taken goal by Charley Clifford gave Charlton the lead three minutes before half time, but they were denied what would have been their first league win of the season on the hour, when Cherelle Khassal headed in a cross by Annabel Johnson.
