Durham Women have regained the leadership of the FA Women's Championship following their 1-1 draw against Charlton Athletic on Sunday.
The Addicks started the game well and although the home side became more of an attacking force as the game wore on, it was Charlton who took the lead with fourteen minutes remaining when Lois Heuchan rose highest to head her side in front from a corner. Charlton held on until deep into injury time, Bridget Galloway scrambling in an equaliser to preserve the Wildcats' unbeaten record and return her side to the top of the table.
Sheffield Utd had started the day as leaders but went down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 1-0 by Liverpool. A closely fought match was decided after just five minutes when Rinsola Babajide scored a fine individual goal for a result which takes the Reds to within a single point of their opponents.
The other two teams in the top half met each other and it was Leicester City who were 1-0 winners over Lewes, which means they are now one point off the pace. Paige Bailey-Gayle kept her recent good form by firing home the only goal of the game on the half hour.
Blackburn Rovers notched up their third victory of the season when beating London Bees 3-0, bringing a halt to the Bees' recent upsurge in form. Elise Hughes gave Rovers the lead ten minutes before half time and after the break, the Welsh international scored her second from the penalty spot following a foul on Emma Doyle. Saffron Jordan sealed the points for Blackburn with the final goal, eleven minutes from time.
Crystal Palace leapfrogged Coventry Utd in the table after winning their meeting 3-1. The Eagles went in front after four minutes through an unfortunate own goal by Maz Gauntlett from a Coral-Jade Haines free kick and Bianca Baptiste drilled home the second. Coventry pulled one back through Nikki Miles just before half time but Palace were to seal the points in style in the second half, thanks to a spectacular volleyed goal by Katie Natkiel.
