Durham climb to summit
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 13 Oct 2020
 
The leadership of the FA Women's Championship changed hands once again on Sunday, with Durham Women taking over at the top after beating Crystal Palace 2-0.
 
Both sides exchanged chances during the first half but on the stroke of half time, Beth Hepple kept up her hot streak of form by giving Durham the lead by curling home a free kick from just outside the area. After the break, Hepple almost doubled the Wildcats' advantage when she headed a Molly Sharpe cross against the bar but she was not to be denied midway through the half, firing in her second via another free kick from distance.
 
Liverpool had started the day as leaders but they were to go down to their first defeat, 2-1 at the hands of Leicester City. The Foxes went ahead at the midway point of the first half when Paige Bailey-Gayle drilled in from an Esmee De Graaf cross and Lachante Paul doubled their lead early in the second half. Jess Clarke pulled one back for Liverpool two minutes later and they pressed hard for an equaliser late on but Leicester held on for the three points.
 
Sheffield Utd meanwhile moved back into the top two on the back of a 3-0 victory away to Coventry Utd. Melissa Johnson put the Blades ahead after 25 minutes but the game remained in the balance, with chances for both sides, until two late goals in quick succession secured the result for Neil Redfearn's side. Katie Wilkinson put them two up with twelve minutes remaining and barely a minute later, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk scored her first goal for the club from close range.
 
Lewes meanwhile continued their good start to the season with a third successive 1-0 victory, this time at the expense of Blackburn Rovers. A game of few chances seemed to be drifting towards a goalless draw but once again, the Rookettes were to come up with the answer and eleven minutes from time, substitute Simran Jhamat grabbed the only goal of the game with a neat finish after being set up by Filippa Savva.
 
The derby match in the capital went the way of London City Lionesses as they won 2-1 against London Bees, who went down to their fifth defeat in a row. The Lionesses got off to a good start when Alli Murphy gave them the lead from the penalty spot after four minutes, which they took into the break, but the Bees hit back to level the scores in spectacular fashion just after the hour, Georgia Robert scoring with a long range free kick. Four minutes later, Harley Bennett headed the Lionesses back in front, and they saw the game out safely to record their first league victory of the season.
