Sheffield Utd have gone to the top of the FA Women's Championship following their 3-0 win against Watford.
Courtney Sweetman-Kirk opened the scoring for the Blades after six minutes and Lucy Watson made it two shortly afterwards. Watson then kept up her fine start to the season after the break with her second goal on the day, to seal a third successive win for her side.
United lead the table on goal difference from Durham Women, who also notched up a third win in four games with a 2-0 success away to Bristol City. Elizabeta Ejupi put the Wildcats in front shortly before half time and Beth Hepple wrapped up the win from the penalty spot late on.
Sunderland remain the division's last unbeaten team after battling back to earn a 1-1 draw with Lewes. After Rhian Cleverly had given the Rookettes an early lead, a late own goal from Rebecca McKenna earned Sunderland a share of the spoils.
Honours were also even as London City Lionesses and Coventry Utd finished level at 2-2, meaning that Coventry picked up their first point of the season. Things could have been even better for Coventry as Rio Hardy gave them a first half lead and a Rianna Jarrett own goal made it two after the break, but they were denied a first win by a fightback from the Lionesses, Jarrett atoning by pulling a goal back for her side and Harley Bennett equalising midway through the second half.
Liverpool meanwhile won 2-1 against Crystal Palace and are up to fifth, two points off the pace. Taylor Hinds gave the Reds a great start with a second minute opener and after Siobhan Wilson had equalised for Palace via a cross-cum-shot, Ashley Hodson scored what proved to be the winner for Liverpool, although they needed to withstand late pressure from Palace to make sure of the victory.
Charlton Athletic have gone level on points with Blackburn Rovers after winning their meeting 2-0. Ella Rutherford put the Addicks in front leading up to half time and substitute Emma Follis sealed the points for her side when she scored the second goal, five minutes from time.
