Leicester City are the new leaders of the FA Women's Championship following their 3-0 victory against London Bees.
Natasha Flint put the Foxes in front when she curled home a shot after eight minutes and another fine strike from Paige Bailey-Gayle doubled their lead early in the second half. Millie Farrow wrapped up the points for Leicester with the third goal, nineteen minutes from time.
Previous leaders Durham Women preserved their unbeaten record but are back in second place after being held to a goalless draw by fast improving Blackburn Rovers, who have now gone five matches without defeat themselves. Torrential rain throughout the match made it difficult for both teams who cancelled each other out the day in a game of few chances.
Liverpool meanwhile stepped up their challenge with a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace. Rinsola Babajide gave Liverpool a second minute lead after exchanging passes with Rachel Furness and the second came just after the half hour, Amy Rodgers scoring from distance. Palace tried to rally after the break but any hopes of a fightback were ended with fifteen minutes remaining when Amalie Thestrup drilled home a shot from the edge of the area and Babajide netted her second with a deflected strike in injury time.
Lewes ended a run of three league matches without a win with a hard fought 2-1 success against Charlton Athletic. The Rookettes inflicted the damage in the six minutes leading up to half time by scoring both goals, Megan Mackey putting them ahead by slotting home following a free kick and Samantha Quayle added the second when she broke through to tuck the ball past Eartha Cumings. Charlton pulled a goal back midway through the second half, courtesy of a neat chipped finish from Lois Heuchan, and the Addicks pressed hard for an equaliser but Lewes stood firm for a result which moves them to within one point of fifth placed Blackburn.
London City Lionesses were in action for the first time in a month and made up for lost time by beating Coventry Utd 2-0, continuing their climb towards mid-table. Lucy Fitzgerald gave the Lionesses the lead midway through the first half, finishing off well from Atlanta Primus' cross from the left. Lily Agg almost made it two with a shot which came back off the bar but with twelve minutes remaining, Lionesses substitute Kallie Balfour secured the points for her side with a fine solo goal.
