Blackburn Rovers have gone to the top of the National Division for the first time in their history after beating Leeds Utd 2-0.
The first half ended goalless but Rovers took the lead within six minutes of the restart, Nikki Twohig slotting home from the penalty spot. Danielle Sheen rounded off the win with the second goal, thanks to a strike from the edge of the area.
Nottingham Forest had started the day as leaders but are now in second place on goal difference following their goalless draw with Barnet. The Bees clung on for an important point with ten players after having striker Holly Sandow sent off for a second bookable offence during the second half .
Sunderland leapt into third, three points off the pace, after they claimed their first victory of the season with a 2-1 success against Reading FC Women. Both of the Wearsiders' goals came inside the opening 13 minutes, Kiera Ramshaw putting them in front and Natalie Gutteridge adding the second with a powerful 20-yard strike. Reading rallied after the break and Nikki Watts reduced the arrears when she bundled home the rebound after her initial shot had been saved by Helen Alderson, but Sunderland closed the game out to take the points.
Millwall Lionesses registered their first point when drawing 2-2 with Watford but a late goal denied them their maiden victory of the campaign. In-form winger Sarah Wiltshire had given Watford an early lead but a goal in each half from Emma Whitter looked to have given Millwall the win. Watford were not finished though and Holly Miles earned her side their third successive draw with a spectacular 30-yard strike.
