Durham Women have gone to the top of the FA Women's Championship after their 2-0 victory over Lewes.
Both goals came during the first half, Ellie Christon giving the Wildcats a sixteenth minute lead and Bridget Galloway netting the second, shortly before half time.
Previous leaders Sheffield Utd are back in second place after battling out a goalless draw with Crystal Palace. Both teams went close to scoring during the course of the game but the point was a good one for Palace, the result also bringing a halt to United's three-match winning run.
Liverpool's season is beginning to gather pace as they claimed their third win in four matches, beating Coventry Utd 2-0. After Coventry had been reduced to ten players during the first half, two goals in a five minute spell after the break from Leanne Kiernan settled matters in Liverpool's favour on the day.
There was late drama at Blackburn Rovers where an injury time goal gave visitors London City Lionesses a 2-1 victory. After a goalless first half, the Lionesses took the lead through Atlanta Primus five minutes after the restart. Saffron Jordan looked to have earned Blackburn a share of the spoils when she scored from a free kick but the game was to have a late sting in the tail, when Amy Rodgers grabbed the winner for the Lionesses, to send them up to fourth in the table.
Charlton Athletic maintained their impressive start to the season on Saturday with a 4-0 victory away to Watford, which had actually taken them joint top with Sheffield Utd at the time. The Addicks got off to a flying start to the game with Anna Filbey giving them a third minute lead and Elise Hughes making it two shortly afterwards. Hughes scored her second after the break and the Welsh international striker completed her hat-trick from the penalty spot just before the hour, after Filbey had been fouled in the area.
The last remaining unbeaten record in the division came to an end as Sunderland lost for the first time, beaten 2-1 by Bristol City. Melissa Johnson gave City the lead from the penalty spot just before the hour mark and six minutes later, Aimee Palmer made it two via a 40-yard free kick. A late header from Charlotte Potts gave Sunderland renewed hopes but the Robins held on for their second win of the season.
