Northern Division leaders Manchester City were held to a

Aston Villa moved to within a point of the leadership as they recorded their eighth win in a row, 4-0 against Preston North End. Jade Richards scored twice, with Dani Petrovic and Carly Davies adding the other goals.
Coventry City kept up their promotion challenge with a 3-2 victory away to Leeds City Vixens. However they needed to come from behind as Leeds raced into a two-goal lead through Kat Bird and Stacey Daniel, both goals being set up by Jess Holbrook. Karen Clough reduced the arrears before half time, then second half strikes from Callan Barber and Leanne McKenna completed the comeback to give the Sky Blues a crucial win.
Leicester City kept their hopes alive by winning 2-1 at Newcastle Utd. Lauren Impey put City in front with a 35-yard free kick but on 35 minutes, Newcastle goalkeeper Laura Wareham was carried off with a serious head injury after a collision with City's Katie Lowder. The game was delayed for around ten minutes and substitute Laura Toni had to go between the posts. United pulled level in the 40th minute when Sarah Wilson delivered a free kick into the Leicester area and Lindsay McCubbin headed home. City came out for the second half in fine fashion and ten minutes after the restart, Natalie Reay clipped home past the sub keeper after fine work by Courtney Sweetman-Kirk.
Curzon Ashton rounded off a good week by following up their first win of the season with another, 2-0 against local rivals Rochdale. Both goals came late on, Ali Hindley giving Curzon the lead with six minutes remaining and Issy Hayes adding the second to complete a win which lifts Curzon off the bottom.
