Nottingham Forest are up to ninth after a 1-1 draw at seventh-placed Stoke City, who equalised in stoppage time. Faye McCoy clipped the crossbar in the first half for the Potters but Forest opened the scoring in the last 10 minutes when Georgia Hewitt’s cross was dropped by Amy Burnside and Katie Middleton turned home the loose ball. However, Roisin Kivel rescued a point for City in the 93rd minute.

Chorley came from behind to take the points 2-1 away at mid-table Liverpool Feds. Abby Pope had the hosts in front early on via a corner but Chorley struck twice in the space of a couple of minutes close to half time, the second on the follow-up to a save by Meghan Pope.

Keynsham Town went top of South West Division 1 on goal-difference, overtaking Southampton WFC with two games still in hand after defeating Swindon Town 4-0. Kerry Bartlett added two more goals to her tally, Kelly Aldridge got one and Libby Sims found the net on her first team debut.
