Durham Women continue to set the pace at the top of the FA Women's Championship, thanks to a 2-1 victory away to London Bees.
The Bees, still looking for their first points of the season, gave themselves a great morale boosting start when Charlie Estcourt gave them a 20th minute lead but it lasted just for two minutes, Becky Salicki bundling in the equaliser from a Beth Hepple corner. Molly Sharpe put the Wildcats ahead early in the second half and, despite chances at both ends in an evenly contested game, they held on for a result which gives them a lead of three points.
Sheffield Utd stay in second place after being held to a goalless draw by Lewes. The Blades pressed hard for a winner as the match wore on but could not make a breakthrough as the Rookettes defended superbly, with goalkeeper Tatiana Saunders in good form, to record an impressive fourth straight clean sheet and keep themselves just behind the leading sides.
Leicester City continue to pick up momentum and are up to third as they ran out 4-1 winners at Crystal Palace. The home side took an early lead through Cherelle Khassal but the match was turned on its head just before half time when Palace striker Amy Taylor was red carded and Remi Allen and Natasha Flint scored for Leicester ahead of the break. Lachante Paul made it three on the hour, with Allen crowning the result as she completed her double.
Blackburn Rovers picked up their second league victory of the season, 1-0 against London City Lionesses. The only goal of the game came on the half hour, when Saffron Jordan was brought down in the area and Georgia Walters scored from the resulting penalty. The Lionesses, who had confirmed Melissa Phillips as their new Head Coach following a spell as caretaker, came close in the second half when Lily Agg hit the post but Rovers held on for three valuable points which take them into mid-table.
Coventry Utd meanwhile staged a second half fightback to come from two behind to win 3-2 away to Charlton Athletic. Ciara Watling opened the scoring for the Addicks after 27 minutes and Jess King netted the second on the stroke of half time but a stunning five minute spell after the break saw Beth Merrick pull a goal back and a double from Amber Hughes gave Coventry a lead they did not relinquish.
