Nottingham Forest claimed an excellent 2-1 victory over Lincoln City which takes them into second place in the Northern Division.
The two teams went into the game sporting 100% records and it was Forest who opened the scoring four minutes before half time as Andi Bell slid the ball past Kay Hawke from Kelly Finley's pass. The lead lasted barely a minute as Lady Imps hot shot Jodie Snelson latched on to a long ball and she buried her shot past former Lincoln goalkeeper Dani Maslin.
Just before the hour mark, Forest were back in front as highly rated youngster Reanne Thomas fired home from close range. Lincoln pushed for an equaliser but Forest held out to take three precious points which sees them as one of four teams level on points at the top, with Lincoln poised just behind.
Sunderland are adjusting to life well back in the Northern Division and their 2-1 local derby victory over Newcastle Utd leaves them just behind the pack of leading clubs.
It was the first time the clubs had met in the Premier League, the match attracting a good crowd, and it was Newcastle who scored the only goal of the first half via a powerful finish from Kayla Carter.
Newcastle had the better of the first half but found Sunderland goalkeeper Helen Alderson in outstanding form and, after the break, the Black Cats got back on level terms as Jess Havelock scored from a free kick.
Sunderland lost midfielder Karen Hutchison with an ankle ligament injury following an awkward fall but they went on to take the points through a long range free kick by Steph Bannon.
