With those catch-up games today, there were some big points won today in the relegation battle.

Birmingham City : a huge win at competitor Notts County means there are getting closer  to safety. They now have seven points and therefore seven points ahead of the Belles who have two games in hand.

Notts County : a disappointing home defeat to Birmingham, they are four points ahead of the Belles who have a game in hand.

Liverpool : heavy 6-3 defeat at Chelsea leaves them with four points ahead of the Belles who have two games in hand over them

Sunderland :  no game this week-end, still three points ahead of the Belles who have a game in hand over them

Reading : no game this week-end, still three points ahead of the Belles who have two games in hand over them
