A 2-0 victory over local rivals Sunderland keeps Durham Women two points clear at the top of the FA Women's Championship.
A well contested local derby remained goalless until just before the hour mark, when Beth Hepple fired in a trademark free kick to open the scoring. Mollie Lambert then lobbed home the second to put the seal on a fifth win in six matches for the Wildcats.
The result actually returned Durham to the top of the table because on Saturday, Liverpool had gone there for the first time this season after winning 2-0 away to Sheffield Utd. Top spot was on offer for the winners of the match and it was the Reds who took the points with two first half goals, Charlotte Wardlaw giving them a fifth minute lead and Leanne Kiernan scoring the second just ahead of the interval.
London City Lionesses meanwhile came from behind to win 2-1 against Watford to move into the top three. Helen Ward gave Watford the lead midway through the second half but her side's hopes of a first victory were dashed as the Lionesses fought back to take the points with two goals in a six minute spell, Brooke Nunn bringing the scores level and Annie Rossiter then scored the winner after being set up by Mollie Rouse.
Charlton Athletic made it four wins in five games when they defeated Bristol City 2-1. Emma Follis put the Addicks in front early on but City fought back and levelled the scores through Abi Harrison just before half time. Charlton were to have the final say as the game went into injury time, Follis heading home her second goal on the day from a Megan Wynne cross to maintain her side's good start to the season.
Crystal Palace picked up their first away win of the season when they edged Coventry Utd by the odd goal in five. Olivia Fergusson gave Coventry an early lead which they held until first half injury time, when Sophie McLean brought the scores level. Molly-Mae Sharpe then put Palace in front, with Rio Hardy equalising a minute later, and it was Palace who were to settle a thrilling match when Siobhan Wilson scored the rebound after Millie Farrow's shot was saved.
Lewes moved out of the bottom three on the back of a 1-0 victory against Blackburn Rovers. Ellie Hack scored the only goal after two minutes and although both sides had chances throughout the game, it was the Rookettes who were to claim their second win of the season.
