The Northern Division title race was put on hold as the weather was the only winner on Sunday.
Lincoln City remain three points behind leaders Nottingham Forest after their match away to Sunderland was abandoned at half time due to a heavy snowfall. The Lady Imps had been leading 1-0 at the time, through a 26th minute goal from Jodie Snelson, but the match will have to be replayed.
At the other end of the table, Rotherham Utd may well be virtually assured of safety following their 3-3 draw at home to Preston North End. However, it could have been so much better for the Millers as they led 3-0 at one stage, Suzanne Davies giving them the lead on the half hour before a Sarah Jones own goal and Helen Lynskey strike put them in control of the game. Gemma Watson then reduced the arrears, Hannah Bailey added a second and Alison Taberner scored with an injury free kick to give Preston their first draw of the season after 20 matches. The result means that Stockport County must beat Newcastle Utd by six goals in their final match in order to deny Rotherham their Premier League status.
The other match to beat the weather saw Tranmere Rovers and Newcastle Utd also share six goals and, remarkably, the visiting team also overturned a three goal deficit to salvage a point! This time it was Tranmere who made a flying start with Helen King and Rachel Rigby netting early goals before Rigby completed her double on the hour mark. Rachel Furness then pulled a goal back for Newcastle, Kelly Ridley added another and Ruth Sutcliffe grabbed the equaliser with five minutes remaining.
