Liverpool have gone to the top of the FA Women's Championship after their 2-1 victory away to Coventry Utd.
The Reds made a fast start to the game and took the lead after eleven minutes when Melissa Lawley converted a cross from Kirsty Linnett. Amalie Thestrup put them further ahead just after the half hour, before Becky Anderson gave Coventry hope with twenty minutes remaining.
The Reds have a lead of two points from Durham Women who shared a 2-2 draw with Leicester City, a result which means that both teams stay unbeaten. The Wildcats took the lead through Emily Roberts midway through the first half but Leicester hit back with an equaliser from Charlie Devlin on the stroke of half time. Beth Hepple restored Durham's advantage after the break, before the Foxes responded again with ten minutes left, Ruesha Littlejohn earning them a share of the spoils.
Lewes meanwhile made it two wins on the trot with a 1-0 success away to London City Lionesses and this result has lifted them up to fourth. Ellie Leek scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 32nd minute but the Rookettes needed to defend solidly under second half pressure from the home side in order to secure the points.
Crystal Palace notched up their first victory of the season in some style, 4-1 at London Bees. Palace went in front after four minutes via a Siobhan Wilson free kick and Coral-Jade Haines quickly added a second. Bianca Baptiste made it three in the opening minute of the second half and Haines completed her double before the Bees grabbed a late consolation goal through Melisa Filis.
