Durham Women continue to set the pace in the FA Women's Championship after winning 1-0 in their top of the table clash with Sheffield Utd.
The teams went into the game with just a single point separating them and it turned to be a tight affair, United going close to taking the lead when Rhema Lord-Mears hit the woodwork. Nine minutes into the second half, Nicki Gears scored the only goal of the game for the Wildcats, heading in the rebound after Beth Hepple's free kick had been saved by Fran Kitching.
Durham therefore stay one point clear at the top of the table with Leicester City now in second place after powering to a 9-1 victory away to Coventry Utd. The home side did actually go in front in the third minute through a brilliant 25-yard strike from Maz Gauntlett but Leicester's response was emphatic, Lachante Paul equalising eight minutes later and Natasha Flint then putting them ahead, before Paul and Flint each scored their second ahead of half time. Paige Bailey-Gayle made it five, three minutes after the restart, and a ruthless Leicester display saw them add further goals from Remi Allen, Sophie Barker, Ruesha Littlejohn and Millie Farrow.
Liverpool remain just outside the top three following their goalless draw against mid-table Blackburn Rovers. Alex Brooks had a fine match in goal for Blackburn with excellent saves from Rinsola Babajide and Amalie Thestrup, whilst Ashley Hodson hit the post, whilst a good defensive display by the home side was almost crowned at the other end when Saffron Jordan's first half effort was saved by Rachael Laws.
London Bees are off the bottom of the table after they won 1-0 against Lewes, their second victory in three league matches. Lauren Pickett fired home the game's solitary goal from the penalty spot after having been fouled in the area early in the second half, although they did receive a huge scare in injury time when Rookettes midfielder Megan Mackey crashed a long range shot against the bar.
The other scheduled game between Charlton Athletic and London City Lionesses was postponed, because of a waterlogged pitch.
