Villa back with a victory
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 8 Feb 2020
 
After having been the odd team out the previous Sunday, Aston Villa returned to action on Sunday with a 3-0 victory over Charlton Athletic, to continue their near season long domination of the division.
 
In fact, Villa could not have started the game any better as they took the lead after just 32 seconds of play, Shania Hayles bursting forward before finding the corner of the net. Villa continued to press in search of a second but it would not come and as the match wore on, Charlton began to become more of a threat. However with three minutes remaining, Emma Follis slid home a fine finish to put Villa two ahead and Melissa Johnson went on to sea the result in injury time.
 
Villa's lead has now been extended to five points, from Durham Women after they won 2-0 away to Blackburn Rovers to lift themselves above Sheffield Utd, whose match with Crystal Palace was postponed due to Palace needing to replay their Women's FA Cup tie. The first half ended goalless with Durham looking the likelier to score and ten minutes after the restart, they took the lead when a cross by Molly Sharpe was headed firmly home by Eleanor Dale. Rovers tried to respond with Ria Montgomery going close but at the other end, Abby Holmes struck the woodwork from long range and in the final minute, Sharpe wrapped up a fifth win in six games for the Wildcats when she converted a cross from Beth Hepple.
 
London City Lionesses meanwhile staged a fine comeback from two goals down early on to beat Coventry Utd 3-2 and further cement themselves in fourth place. However, this looked far from likely as Coventry put themselves in front after five minutes, Fiona Worts breaking through to score, and Shannon O'Brien quickly doubled their advantage with a well taken effort. Vanessa Susanna brought the Lionesses back into the game when she scored just after the half hour and they got themselves back on level terms ten minutes into the second half, thanks to Annie Rossiter. The game seemed to be heading towards a draw but in injury time, Susanna netted her second goal of the game to complete the comeback and give the Lionesses their eighth victory of the season.
 
A second win in a row has taken Leicester City further away from any danger and within one point of fifth place. This time, the Foxes were 1-0 winners over Lewes in a tightly contested game of few chances. The only goal of the game came midway through the second half when Annabel Blanchard finished neatly.
