With the top two in the FA Women's Championship not having a game on Sunday, third placed Sheffield Utd took the opportunity to narrow the gap on them to four points with a 4-2 victory away to London Bees.
The Blades took the lead in the fourteenth minute when a Leandra Little cross was diverted into her own net by Billie Brooks, with Courtney Sweetman-Kirk adding the second just after the half hour. The Bees fought back and reduced the arrears with Sophie McLean scored from close range, five minutes before half time. Naomi Hartley restored the two-goal advantage two minutes into the second half but once again the Bees responded and Charlie Estcourt gave them renewed hope shortly afterwards. The game remained in the balance until injury time when Katie Wilkinson made the points safe for United from the penalty spot.
Liverpool lost ground on the top three after battling out a 2-2 draw with Charlton Athletic, who move off the bottom of the table as a result. In snowy conditions at Hayes Lane, Shauna Vassell gave Charlton the lead midway through the first half but goals late on from Rachel Furness and debutant Ceri Holland looked to have given Liverpool victory. However as the game went into stoppage time, Charley Clifford earned the Addicks a vital point when she equalised from the penalty spot.
Lewes are back in mid-table following a 1-0 success away to Coventry Utd. Sue Wood was in fine form in goal for the home side with a string of saves and Simran Jhamat hit the bar, whilst Coventry also had chances at the other end and hit the woodwork through Amber Hughes. The game looked to be heading towards a draw but it was also to conjure up a vital injury time strike, Georgia Timms slotting home from an Emma Jones cross to hand the points to the Rookettes.
There was also late drama at Blackburn Rovers where the home side shared a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace. Jade Richards headed Blackburn in front from a first half corner, whilst Palace levelled the scores through Cherelle Khassal six minutes later. Palace then took the lead with three minutes remaining as Annabel Johnson bundled home but Blackburn were to have the final say, Natasha Fenton earning them a share of the spoils when she fired home a late equaliser.
