Liverpool strengthened their position at the top of the Northern Division with a 2-1 victory over second placed Manchester City.
The Reds needed to come from behind after City took a first half lead through a bullet header from Charlotte Farrell, which went in off the underside of the bar following a corner. Liverpool got back on terms on the hour mark, Katie Williams bundling the ball home following a goalmouth scramble and Kelly Jones netted the winner via a glancing header with four minutes remaining to send her side four points clear at the top.
Liverpool were further boosted by the news that Aston Villa were beaten for the first time this season,
2-0 at home by improving Newcastle Utd. Steph Eadon put the Magpies in front and Kelly Ridley sewed up the victory by netting the second from the penalty spot.
The only other game to survive the weather was at Leicester City where the home side defeated Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 to go third in the table. Leicester took the lead in the 16th minute when a nice move by Zira Handley and Katie Lowder let Natasha Meade in to coolly finish past Owls keeper Dani Maslin. Wednesday got back into the game as Tanya Rich levelled with a powerful dipping shot from 25 yards but City went back in front when a clever flighted corner by Leah Rawle found Handley who rifled home. Wednesday, playing their first game under new manager Andy Burgess, tried to get back into the game but Leanne Hall was in splendid form in goal for City and denied Rich and Sarah Danby. On 83 minutes, City's Chloe Jones threaded a lovely ball through to Courtney Sweetman-Kirk who calmly rounded Maslin to slot home and Kirsty Robson made it four in injury time after Handley put her through.
