Durham Women hold on to the early leadership of the FA Women's Championship after making it three wins out of the three when beating Charlton Athletic 2-0.
Both goals came during the first half, Durham taking the lead just before the half hour when Molly Sharpe finished off from a cross by Ellie Christon. Lisa Robertson scored the second just before half time with a shot from just outside the area.
The Wildcats continue to head the table on goal difference from Aston Villa, who preserved their own 100% record with a 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers. Melissa Johnson scored from close range to give Villa a first half lead which was doubled after the break by Marisa Ewers. Alex Taylor pulled a goal back for Blackburn straight away but they could not get back on level terms and Villa held out for a third straight win.
London City Lionesses defeated Leicester City 3-1 and this result has taken them into the top three. Ylenia Priest put the Lionesses in front midway through the first half and within three minutes of the restart, they were two ahead thanks to Leanne Cowan. Evie Clarke wrapped up the win with the third goal, five minutes from time, before Libby Smith netted a consolation for Leicester in injury time.
London Bees are also on six points following their 2-1 win against Coventry Utd. The Bees took the lead in the eighteenth minute when Taylor O'Leary headed in from a Megan Alexander cross, but Coventry fought back and levelled just after the half hour through a neat finish from Amber Hughes. Lauren Pickett restored the Bees' advantage before half time with what proved to be the winning goal, despite Nikita Whinnett having a second half penalty saved by Sue Wood.
Lewes remain unbeaten but had to settle for a share of the spoils as they and Crystal Palace battled out a 1-1 draw. In an entertaining affair at the Dripping Pan, both sides had chances during the first half but the scoreline was goalless at half time. Midway through the second half, Palace took the lead when Ashleigh Goddard bundled home following a cross by Ella Rutherford but their joy lasted for barely a minute, the Rookettes hitting back straight away as Jess King fired in the equaliser.
