Leicester City are just two points away from clinching the FA Women's Championship title following their 2-0 victory against Coventry Utd.
Leicester took the lead on the stroke of half time, a quickly taken corner was laid off to Natasha Flint on the edge of the area where she drove home the opening goal. Flint went on to seal an eleventh straight league win for her side on the hour with another clinical finish after being put through on goal.
Leicester had been further boosted by the news that second placed Durham Women had been held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield Utd. Both goals came either side of the half hour mark, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk putting the Blades in front following good work down the left by Maddy Cusack, but the Wildcats were back on terms three minutes later, Ali Johnson marking her debut with a powerful left foot strike from just inside the area.
Liverpool and Sheffield Utd had gone into the weekend with exactly the same playing record from their 16 games and this remains the case after the Reds also drew 1-1 against Blackburn Rovers. Missy Bo Kearns gave Liverpool the lead before the break with a well taken goal, skipping past two challenges before planting a firm shot inside the corner of the net. Blackburn hit back strongly after the break and it was on-loan Everton striker Elise Hughes who earned them a point, scoring from close range from Georgia Walters' low cross.
Lewes are back in the top five after they won 2-1 over London Bees, who remain at the foot of the table. The Rookettes went in front with only five minutes on the clock, when the unfortunate Evie Gane deflected a corner into her own net, but the Bees weathered the early pressure to bring themselves back on level terms as Sophie Quirk curled home the equaliser. The winner for Lewes came six minutes into the second half, a cross-shot from out wide by Megan Mackey finding the far top corner.
London City Lionesses and Charlton Athletic battled out a goalless draw in their local derby which leaves the Lionesses still in mid-table, whilst the Addicks edge closer to safety. Both teams had opportunities to score during the match but both defences remained solid to ensure the points were shared on the day.
