Leicester City have a firm grip on the FA Women's Championship title race following their 2-0 victory away to nearest rivals Durham Women.
The two teams went into the match level on points at the top and this was shown in a tight first half of few chances, which ended goalless. However two minutes after the restart, Leicester took the lead after a Hannah Cain free kick was not cleared and Sam Tierney was on hand to volley home from close range. Tierney then headed in her second goal on the hour to seal a vital win for her side and bring an end to Durham's sixteen match unbeaten run. Leicester now lead by three points and have a game in hand, requiring seven points from their last four matches to be sure of the title.
Liverpool are back in the top three after running out 5-0 winners over Coventry Utd. Niamh Fahey put the Reds in front midway through the first half and their lead was doubled by Rebecca Jane a minute later. Ceri Holland made it three, early in the second half, before Fahey netted her second from close range. Melissa Lawley put the seal on a third straight win for Liverpool with the final goal, six minutes from time.
Sheffield Utd slip back a place to fourth on goal difference, even though they won 1-0 against Charlton Athletic. A very tight match yielded few clear cut chances for either side but United came up with the only goal of the game, seven minutes into second half, when a Maddy Cusack corner was headed in by leading scorer Katie Wilkinson.
Lewes meanwhile produced one of their best results of the season to date, a 3-0 success at Blackburn Rovers which puts them back in the running for a top five finish. Blackburn started the game brightly but it was Lewes who went in front, Ini Umotong slotting home from the penalty spot after having been fouled in the area. Rookettes captain Rhian Cleverly then made it two with a powerful header. Danni Lane crowned a great result for Lewes with twenty minutes remaining as she drove home from the edge of the area following a good solo run.
