Meanwhile Watford beat Oxford Untied 5-2 after an action-packed second half.

The Golden Girls took the lead through Katie O’Leary who picked out the bottom corner for her third goal of the season while Adekite Fatuga-Dada made it 2-0 just before the break.

And Portsmouth’s visit to Keynsham produced the most goals of the afternoon as the hosts were beaten 7-2.

Becki Bath netted a hat-trick in the AJN Stadium victory with Tamsin de Bunsen adding two more and Charmaine True and Jade Widdows also on target.

After falling behind early, Jodie Redgrave puled the Coasters back level from a corner before Lavinia Nkomo buried a header just before half time.

Boro hit back with just under an hour left to play and Fylde thought they had won it when Laura Merrin bent a free-kick into the top corner but an added-time equaliser meant both teams left with a point.

And Burnley beat Loughborough 2-0 thanks to goals from Sarah Greenhalgh and Evie Priestley.

Bad weather caused Stoke’s trip to Sunderland and Hull City’s visit from West Bromwich Albion to be postponed.
