Arsenal go five points ahead
 Women's Football News 22 Sep 2008
 
Arsenal opened up a lead of five points at the top of the National Division following their 6-2 victory over Birmingham City.
 
Katie Chapman netted the only goal of the first half for the Gunners but Birmingham were back on level terms within a minute of the restart through Becky Hall. Gemma Davison restored Arsenal's lead with Amy McCann once again levelling, but the Blues' resistance was finally broken as Julie Fleeting put Arsenal back in front and three goals in the dying minutes came from Fleeting, Davison and Kim Little.
 
With Chelsea not playing, Everton closed the gap on the second placed side by winning 3-1 away to Blackburn Rovers. Rachel Unitt gave Everton a first half lead which was levelled before the break by Karen Burke, but second half strikes from Amy Kane and Natasha Dowie secured Everton's fifth straight win.
 
Leeds Carnegie and Bristol Academy battled out a 1-1 draw which keeps both teams in the top half. Carla Cantrell put Leeds in front five minutes before half time with Corinne Yorston earning Academy a point when scoring midway through the second half.
 
WFC Fulham's improving form continued as they took their unbeaten run to three matches as well as their third successive draw, a goalless affair against mid-table Watford.
 
The bottom two teams in the table met each other for the second week in a row, this time in the league, and Nottingham Forest picked up their first point in the resulting 2-2 draw with Liverpool. Gill Hart and Cheryl Foster twice gave Liverpool the lead with goals in either half and Forest hit back on both occasions, firstly through Lauren Cresswell and Natalie Clarke, who earned her side a point with eleven minutes remaining.
 
The one outstanding Premier League Cup tie was played and Doncaster Rovers Belles booked themselves a Second Round trip to Nottingham Forest by winning 6-1 away to Tranmere Rovers. Debbie Cartmel did give Tranmere an eighth minute lead but Tanya Rich and Vanessa Leat ensured that the Belles were in front by the half hour and Rachel Williams added a third before half time. After the break, Rich netted her second and Liz Hanson weighed in with a late brace.
