Terriers takeover

Huddersfield Town are the new leaders of the Northern Division on goal-difference following their 1-0 victory at Derby County. Half-time sub Emily Heckler took just 10 minutes to make her presence pay.

Middlesbrough’s 4-0 defeat of West Brom puts them level on points with the top two. Goalless at the break, Boro then banked four through Leonie Hutchnson, Emma Foster, Ellie Dobson and Holly Manders.

Nottingham Forest and Leicester City WFC are fourth and fifth respectively after sharing four goals in the East Midlands derby. Forest twice went ahead for a brief period through Samantha Conroy and Natasha Hudson, with Nat Johnson and a Leigh Dugmore penalty bringing City level.

Guiseley Vixens got off the mark in a 3-3 draw at home to Stoke City. Ashleigh Hayes gave the Potters the lead, Chantelle O’Hara turned the game round for the Vixens by the break with a brace. Hayes then got her second and Hannah Keryakoplis put City ahead 3-2, with Alarna Fuller equalising late on.

Charlton cherish leadership

Charlton Athletic have replaced rivals Crystal Palace at the Southern Division summit, after the Addicks thrashed QPR 7-0 and the Eagles were held 0-0 by Coventry United. Kim Dixson’s goal for Charlton was the only difference at half-time but Kit Graham got a couple, Charlotte Gurr, Ellie Dorey, Katie Flack and Hope Nash one apeice.

Gillingham went third when netting five goals against Swindon Town at Priestfield Stadium. Jenny Newman and a Kallie Balfour brace had the Gills three up inside the half hour. Balfour went on to complete her hat-trick and Jade Keogh finished the scoring.

Lewes leapfrogged Portsmouth after defeating them by the only goal late in the game. Dani Lane burst down the left flank and delivered a low ball which Rebecca Carter turned home.

Chichester City made it back to back wins with a 4-0 result over West Ham. Although the first half was goalless, City did put four past the Hammers for the second time this season, with two from Charley Wilson-Blakely and singles by Cherelle Khassal and Jade Widdows.
