Northern Premier Division
Leaders Nottingham Forest went down to their first defeat of the season and this has left three teams level on points at the top of the table. Huddersfield Town joined Forest on 13 points after winning their meeting 2-1, Beth Stanfield giving Town an early lead and Charlotte Greengrass equalising just before half time. With six minutes left, Kate Mallin grabbed a decisive second goal to end the last remaining unbeaten record in the division and hand her side a fourth straight victory.
Fylde Women are sandwiched in between Forest and Huddersfield in second place after running out impressive 4-1 winners away to Derby County. Faye McCoy netted twice for the Coasters along with Jess Holbrook and Emily Hollinshead, whilst Derby's consolation came from Amy Sims.
West Bromwich Albion returned into the top four places on the back of a 4-0 victory at Hull City. Keeley Davies, Trina Greaves, Natalie Murray and Jade Arber all scored a goal apiece for Albion who are just three points off the pace.
Stoke City made it two wins on the trot when edging out Middlesbrough by the odd goal in seven and this has moved them into the top half. Elizabeth Steele was the heroine for Stoke as she scored a hat-trick, which included a late winner. Roisin Kivel added their other goal, whilst ‘Boro replied through Danielle Brown, Jasmine McQuade and Armani Maxwell.
Burnley FC Women got back to winning ways after coming from behind at the break to beat Loughborough Foxes 3-1. The Foxes took the lead through Charlotte Cooper just before half time but a second half brace from Elizabeth Hamer, either side of a goal from Katie Thomas, earned the Clarets their first win in three matches.
Sunderland are beginning to get into their stride and notched up their second successive win, 2-1 against Sheffield FC. Holly Housley did put Sheffield in front during the first half, before Keira Ramshaw headed the Wearsiders level three minutes later and and a great individual goal from Maria Farrugia settled matters in Sunderland's favour.
Southern Premier Division
Oxford Utd made it four wins on the trot and are two points ahead following their 4-1 success against Cardiff City Ladies, ending the division's last unbeaten record in the process. Emily Allen, Georgia Brown, Hannah MacKenzie and Molly Peters all scored a goal apiece for the in-form U's, whilst Cardiff's consolation came from Cori Williams.
Watford and Yeovil Utd meanwhile battled out a 1-1 draw which means that the Golden Girls are now two points off the pace in second. Both goals came just before the interval, Katie O'Leary giving Watford the lead from the penalty spot and Jenna Markham earning Yeovil a share of the spoils nine minutes later.
Milton Keynes Dons are in excellent form in third place, their 8-0 victory at Plymouth Argyle meaning they have won their last three games, scoring 17 and conceding none in the process. Cherrelle Albert, Jade Bell and Vicky Neal all netted doubles for MK, with Mollie Coupar and Rhianne Rush joining them on the scoresheet.
Portsmouth climbed into the top four after they defeated Hounslow Women 3-0. Becki Bath kept up her good form in front of goal by scoring twice, once in each half, and Ava Rowbotham weighed in with the other, midway through the second half.
Gillingham joined Keynsham Town on six points by narrowly winning their meeting 2-1. Melanie Parreno put the Gills into a sixteenth minute lead which was cancelled out just before the break by Corinne Yorston, before Maddison Chamney-Farrand settled matters the winning goal shortly after the hour mark.
