Cheryl Mawhood levelled matters two minutes after the restart but Leicester were back in front on the hour as Reay netted her second. Courtney Sweetman-Kirk extended Leicester's lead and, although Nicole Jepson pulled one back for Wednesday, City held on for a 4-3 victory which takes them into fifth place.

Curzon Ashton's excellent form since the turn of the year continued and they have put daylight between themselves and the bottom two after scoring six without reply past Rotherham Utd. Nicky Maylett opened the scoring after five minutes with Nicky McLeod and a Bridget Booth own goal increasing their tally before half time. McLeod scored her second fifteen minutes from time and Curzon completed their biggest win of the season via late goals from Georgina Stebbings and Emma Gaynon.
