Nottingham Forest fought back from two goals down to beat Sunderland 3-2 in a pulsating match between two of the Northern Division high fliers.
Sarah Danby had put Sunderland in front through a fine strike and Natalie Gutteridge doubled their advantage midway through the first half. Natalie Staneff reduced the arrears for Forest and, with twenty minutes remaining, they were back on terms as Kelly Finley scored from a corner. Forest captain Beth Bailey then settled the match in her side's favour with an acrobatic left foot volley although they did have to withstand late Sunderland pressure.
Forest now head the table by three points with Lincoln City climbing back into second place after winning 6-2 away to Sheffield Wednesday. Once again it was the Lady Imps' prolific strike duo who caused the most damage, Stacey Aisthorpe scoring a hat-trick to go into double figures for the season whilst Jodie Snelson weighed in with a double, central defender Kate Wooldridge volleying home the other goal.
Two of the leading four teams met head on and it was visitors Stockport County who defeated Preston North End 1-0. Keeleigh Savage added to her growing reputation by scoring the only goal of the game on the half hour whilst Krystle Johnson and Nikki Doig struck the woodwork for Stockport, who defended very well against a strong Preston side which had plenty of possession.
On a day for comebacks, Rotherham Utd repeated Nottingham Forest's feat as they came from two down to win 3-2, against Aston Villa. Hannah Smith scored twice in three minutes to put Villa two goals ahead but Suzanne Davies netted both goals as Rotherham were back on level terms by half time, and the striker completed her hat-trick with the winner, eleven minutes into the second half to move Rotherham out of the bottom two.
Manchester City added to Crewe Alexandra's worries with a 5-2 victory which has taken them into mid-table. Emma Lambourne put Crewe in front but City hit back strongly as goals from Ellena Turner, Laura Gligan, Rachael Davies and Lindsay Savage sent them 4-1 ahead by the interval. Katie Brusell further extended their advantage before Michaela Thompson scored a late consolation for Crewe.
Three second half goals helped Newcastle Utd on their way to a 4-1 success against Tranmere Rovers. Sue Kenwright had given Tranmere a first half lead before equalised before half time and, after the restart, the Magpies added further goals through Stacy Crooks, Ruth Sutcliffe and Kayla Carter.
