A goal in each half earned Leicester City a 2-0 victory away to Charlton Athletic, which keeps them one point ahead at the top of the FA Women's Championship.
Leading scorer Natasha Flint fired the Foxes in front shortly before half time and Remi Allen sealed a fourth straight victory when she headed in the second, twelve minutes from time.
Durham Women stay on Leicester's heels after beating Coventry Utd 4-3, but the scoreline does not tell the full story of the game. Although Beth Hepple scored early on for the Wildcats, Beth Merrick then hit a first half hat-trick to put Coventry in a commanding position at the break. However in the second half, Emily Roberts pulled a goal back and Sarah Robson levelled the scores, before Roberts scored her second with fifteen minutes remaining to give Durham what had looked to be an unlikely victory.
Liverpool are up into third place as they also won on the road, 1-0 at London City Lionesses. The only goal of the game came just after the half hour mark, Meikayla Moore scoring from close range following an Amy Rodgers corner.
Sheffield Utd were another team to stage a comeback from a two-goal deficit, this time to earn themselves a point in a 3-3 draw with Blackburn Rovers, who stretched their unbeaten run to five matches. Maria Edwards opened the scoring for Blackburn with just 30 seconds on the clock and Saffron Jordan quickly added a second. Katie Wilkinson pulled one back for United from the penalty spot and after Jade Richards had netted a third for Rovers, Wilkinson scored a second penalty just before half time. Blackburn held on to their lead until eight minutes from time, when Courtney Sweetman-Kirk earned the Blades a share of the spoils.
Crystal Palace produced one of their best results of the season to date in winning 2-0 away to Lewes. The first half ended goalless but it was Palace who took the lead just after the hour through a neat chip from Bianca Baptiste. With ten minutes remaining, Baptiste netted a second to seal a result which takes her side into mid-table.
