Two late goals ensured that Northern Division leaders Liverpool came away from Newcastle Utd with a 2-1 victory which opens up a four point gap at the top.
Newcastle took the lead just after the half hour through Stacy Crooks and they stayed in front until the final ten minutes, when top scorer Cheryl Foster equalised for the Reds and Amber Simms scored a decisive second just before the end.
OOH Lincoln stay in second place despite being held to a 2-2 draw by Preston North End. Lincoln also had to stage a fightback as Preston raced into a two-goal lead inside the opening seventeen minutes, thanks to Laura Walker and Hannah Bailey. Midway through the second half, Jodie Michalska pulled a goal back for the Lady Imps and the prolific striker came to her side's rescue as she grabbed an injury time equaliser.
Manchester City are back amongst the leading pack following their 2-0 win at Derby County, who stay in the bottom two. Francesca Champ broke the deadlock for City with twenty minutes remaining and a late goal from Becky Grocott sewed up the points.
A 3-2 victory away to Leeds City Vixens means that Curzon Ashton are back in the top half of the table. Shelley James and Amanda Goodwin gave Curzon a two-goal lead on the half hour, with Emily Maguire pulling a goal back for Leeds ahead of the interval. Maguire looked to have earned the Vixens a share of the spoils when she equalised with six minutes remaining but Curzon were to have the final say and James netted a winning goal, three minutes from time.
Sheffield Wednesday gained a much needed win, 2-0 against Luton Town who are still searching for their first victory. Hollie Barker put the Owls in front after 20 minutes and Hayley Sharp sealed the points with the second goal, six minutes into the second half.
