Charlton end unwanted run
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 17 Sep 2020
 
Charlton Athletic ended their long run without a victory in the FA Women's Championship when a late goal gave them a 1-0 win away to Blackburn Rovers.
 
The Addicks needed to survive pressure from the home side during the first half as Blackburn twice hit the woodwork through Natasha Fenton and debutant Elise Hughes. Charlton came into the game more after the break as both teams had goals disallowed but when the match went into injury time, Jess King broke through to chip home the only goal of the game and seal Charlton's first league victory since May 2019.
 
The result means that Charlton are actually level on points with the leaders, with no team having won their first two matches and five have notched up four points so far. These five are headed by Sheffield Utd and Leicester City whose meeting ended in a 2-2 draw. Millie Farrow got Leicester off to a great start when she gave them the lead after two minutes but the Blades responded well, Sophie Walton hitting the bar before Melissa Johnson brought them level on the half hour. Johnson then scored her second midway through the second half and this looked like being enough to give them the points until a late Leicester rally brought them reward in the last minute, Natasha Flint coolly slotting home from the penalty spot after being fouled in the area.
 
Liverpool notched up their first win of the season, a 3-0 success away to London Bees. With the Bees remarkably playing their first home match of the year, the scoreline was goalless at the interval but Melissa Lawley gave Liverpool the lead five minutes after the restart. Rinsola Babajide made it two on the hour mark and Rachel Furness wrapped up a fine result for her side when she headed in the final goal late on.
 
Durham Women also won for the first time, beating Lewes 3-0. The Rookettes were playing their first league match of the season and perhaps this proved to be a telling factor as the Wildcats scored all of their goals in the last fifteen minutes. The game remained in the balance until Durham broke the deadlock from the penalty spot, Beth Hepple tucking home following a foul on Abby Holmes. Hepple netted her second as the game went into injury time, this time scoring direct from a corner, before Emily Roberts rounded off the scoring shortly afterwards.
 
The South London derby match between Crystal Palace and London City Lionesses ended with honours even as the teams battled out a 1-1 draw at Bromley. Both goals came during the first half; Palace took an early lead when Lizzie Waldie powerfully headed home from a corner but ten minutes before half time, the Lionesses were back on level terms when Elizabeta Ejupi - who had earlier hit the bar - finished off after being set up by Juliette Kemppi. Palace therefore stay unbeaten, having drawn both matches, whilst the Lionesses register their first point of the campaign.
