Preston North End won 2-0 away to Sheffield Wednesday to assume the Northern Division leadership for the first time.
Gemma Watson gave Preston the lead after five minutes and Louise Cafferkey completed the win with the second goal, midway through the first half.
The Lancashire side lead by three points from favourites Lincoln City, who ended the winning start of Stockport County by beating them 3-0. Jodie Snelson kept up her superb goalscoring form by netting two first half goals, with Stacey Aisthorpe adding the third ten minutes after half time.
Nottingham Forest are the third side in the division which still sports a 100% record, notching up a 3-0 success over Manchester City. After a goalless first half, Natalie Clarke opened up the scoring just after the hour and the in-form striker added her second with a neat half volley, Reanne Thomas heading in the third goal late on for Forest who meet Lincoln on Thursday.
Aston Villa made sure of getting back to winning ways as they defeated Tranmere Rovers 5-2. Lisa Sharred and Cherelle Archibald gave Villa a two-goal lead at half time with Carly Davies and Stacey Arrowsmith doubling their advantage after the break. Rachel Rigby and Sarah Manning pulled goals back for Tranmere with Hannah Smith completing the win for Villa in the dying minutes.
Sunderland recovered from an early setback to win 3-1 away to Crewe Alexandra. Michaela Thompson had given Crewe the lead after four minutes but Sunderland hit back, Sarah Danby levelling the scores before Steph Bannon put in front early in the second half and Rachel Lee secured the points from the penalty spot, three minutes from time.
Newcastle Utd bagged their first league victory of the season, 6-3 at Rotherham Utd who are still seeking their first points. Helen Lynskey put Rotherham ahead with Michaela Carter equalising barely a minute later. Melanie Reay then struck twice in quick succession and Ruth Sutcliffe added a fourth on the half hour but Rotherham fought back, Hayley Wood and Suzanne Davies reducing the deficit to one by half time. Midway through the second half, Reay completed her hat-trick and Carter her double to wrap up the win for Newcastle.
