Chelsea look set for a third place finish in the National Division following their 2-1 win away to Bristol Academy.
After a goalless first half, Jess Smith headed the Blues in front in the 57th minute and, although Michelle Green levelled the scores for Bristol, Lianne Sanderson fired home what proved to be the winner a minute later. Chelsea are nine points behind leaders Arsenal having played a game more, while Academy need at least one more victory to avoid being dragged into trouble.
Doncaster Rovers Belles hold on to fourth spot after they came from behind to win 2-1 at Blackburn Rovers. Katie Anderton kept up her recent good run by giving Blackburn the lead just after the half hour, which they held until the final fifteen minutes. Naomi Chadwick netted an equaliser for the Belles who went on to take the points as captain Vicky Exley slotted home a penalty in injury time.
Birmingham City leapfrogged Leeds Carnegie and back into the top half by beating the Yorkshire side 2-1. Jo Potter opened the scoring for the Blues in the tenth minute and it looked as though Leeds had earned themselves a point when Ellen White scored with six minutes remaining, but two minutes later Maz Gauntlett gave Birmingham victory with the winning goal.
Liverpool boosted their survival hopes with a precious 3-0 win away to Watford. Madeleine Hills gave the Reds a third minute lead which was doubled just before half time by Alyson Hastie and Watford were further hampered after the break as goalkeeper Marie Hourihan was shown the red card for a handling offence outside the area. Kelly Jones wrapped up with the win with the third goal late on to leave Liverpool four points ahead of danger.
