Millwall Lionesses have opened up a lead of four points at the top of the National Division following their 2-0 victory over Bristol Academy.
Academy had the better of possession, particularly during the first half when they struck the woodwork, but it was Millwall who made the most of their chances late on. Both goals came in the last fifteen minutes, both scored by Charlotte Gurr who latched on to through balls from Ann Marie Heatherson for each strike.
Birmingham City hold on to second spot after a second half equaliser earned them a 1-1 draw away to Blackburn Rovers. The home side went into the lead just before the half hour with a goal from captain Natalie Preston, with the Blues hitting back after the break through Dannii Bird, who scored her third goal in successive matches.
Nottingham Forest picked up their first win of the season, 3-2 away to Sunderland. Kelly McDougall headed the home side into a third minute lead which was quickly cancelled out by Suzanne Davies, on her debut, and Forest then went ahead with a goal from Chloe Foster. After the break, Sunderland missed a number of good opportunities to level the scores before finally equalising midway through the half when McDougall finished off a good move with her second goal. However it was Forest's day and they scored a decisive third with four minutes remaining, Annabel McKechnie heading home from a corner.
Doncaster Rovers Belles drew for the second match in a row when a second half fightback from Watford earned the visitors a 2-2 draw on the main pitch at the Keepmoat Stadium. Sarah Owen gave the Belles an early lead which was doubled on the half hour by Precious Hamilton. In the opening minute of the second half, Kate Longhurst reduced the arrears with her first goal for the club and Annie Barrett earned Watford a share of the spoils with her second goal in successive matches.
