Manchester Utd have stretched their lead at the top of the Championship to three points after overcoming a spirited Lewes side with a 2-0 victory.
In front of a crowd of just under 2,000 at the Dripping Pan, United found it hard to break through during the first half with Rookettes goalkeeper Faye Baker in excellent form, Lizzie Arnot also going close when she hit the post. United finally broke Lewes' resistance eleven minutes into the second half when Mollie Green scored from close range and they finally made the game safe with ten minutes remaining, Baker initially saving a penalty from Alex Greenwood but Ella Toone followed up to tuck home the rebound.
Charlton Athletic now head the chasing teams after registering an impressive 4-0 win away to Leicester City. Charlton's two in-form players were again to the fore with Lily Agg giving them an early lead and the midfielder also hit the post during the first half. Elizabeta Ejupi added the second just before half time and both completed their doubles after the break to round off a good day for the Addicks, whilst a bad result for Leicester was compounded as they lost leading scorer Rosie Axten to an ankle injury.
Tottenham Hotspur had started the day in second place but were stunned by a 6-1 defeat at the hands of Durham Women. Spurs were not helped when goalkeeper Chloe Morgan was red carded for handball outside the area but the Wildcats were already in front through Emily Roberts. Beth Hepple netted twice, with Sarah Robson, Zoe Ness and Chloe Ryan joining her on the scoresheet, whilst the home side's consolation was scored by Angela Addison.
Aston Villa put a five point gap between themselves and Crystal Palace after winning their clash 3-1. The damage was inflicted during the first half, Sophie Haywood giving Villa an early lead and Nadine Hanssen added a second with a well executed volley. Amy West fired in the third from 25 yards and although Nikita Whinnett reduced the arrears on the stroke of half time, Palace could not prevent Villa from marching towards their second victory of the season.
Millwall Lionesses picked up their second point of the season when sharing a 1-1 draw with Sheffield Utd. Ylenia Priest gave Millwall the lead shortly before half time with a header from a corner but after the break, Izzy Ford and Vearitki Sarri combined to set up Sophie James whose initial header was saved but she slotted home the rebound. United pressed for a winner but Millwall stood firm and held on to double their points tally for the season to date.
