Leicester City made sure of staying on top of the FA Women's Championship on goal difference with a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
Leicester did much of the attacking doing the first half and although they found Palace goalkeeper Chloe Morgan in good form, they took the lead ten minutes before half time when Lachante Paul set up Hannah Cain to drive home. Palace came more into the game after the break but neither side could find the net and Leicester saw the game out for three valuable points.
Durham Women are still keeping pace with leaders Leicester after they also triumphed 1-0 away to in-form London City Lionesses. Both teams went close to scoring during a well contested first half but shortly before half time, Durham took the lead when Emily Roberts headed in a cross from Danielle Brown. Hayley Nolan almost grabbed an equaliser late on when her header was cleared off the line, but Durham held on to extend their unbeaten league run to fifteen matches.
Liverpool meanwhile ended a three match run without a win by beating London Bees 3-0, to narrow the gap on third placed Sheffield Utd. The Reds went in front after eight minutes as Rebecca Jane tucked home a low cross from Ashley Hodson, a lead they took into half time, but after the break the Bees pressed hard for an equaliser and went close on a couple of occasions. With seventeen minutes remaining, Liverpool went two ahead when Ceri Holland was played in to score and Amy Rodgers made the points safe when she netted the third.
Charlton Athletic are out of the bottom two places following a crucial 2-0 victory away to Coventry Utd. The first half ended goalless but five minutes after the restart, Charlton took the lead when Jess King latched onto Ella Rutherford's through ball and finished past Sue Wood. Helen Dermody almost equalised for Coventry when her free kick struck the bar, before the Addicks were to add a second goal, Rutherford again with the assist as she set up Lois Heuchan to power a shot home.
