Ahead of match day three in the FA Women’s Championship, just goal-difference separates the top five teams.

FAWC fixtures for Sunday 27 September (2pm)

Durham v London City Lionesses (Maiden Castle, 12:00) – live on FA Player
Crystal Palace v Blackburn Rovers (Bromley FC)
Lewes v Coventry United (Lewes FC)
Liverpool v Charlton Athletic (Tranmere Rovers FC)
Sheffield United v London Bees (Chesterfield FC)

It’s top versus bottom – but only after two games played each – as Sheffield United entertain London Bees.

At this early stage, the only side left with a 100% record is Coventry United – and they have played just once – who visit Lewes.

Liverpool and Charlton Athletic are both unbeaten with the hosts goal-difference ahead of the Addicks before they clash at Prenton Park.

Durham are one of five sides level on four points and home to London City Lionesses, with a noon start at their new Maiden Castle ground.

Crystal Palace have drawn both their games to date and welcome a Blackburn Rovers side yet to get off the mark.
