The leadership of the Northern Division changed hands once again on Sunday and this time it is Sporting Club Albion who lead the way after defeating Rochdale 4-0.
Tash Baptiste fired Albion into a 19th minute lead and she added a second just after the half hour mark. Ashleigh Neville netted with ten minutes remaining and Sophie Richards rounded off the scoring for Dave Lawrence's side late on.
Albion therefore head the table for the first time this season on goal difference from Sheffield FC, who had started the day as leaders but found themselves being held to a goalless draw by rapidly improving Rotherham Utd in their Yorkshire derby match.
A win would have taken Leicester City back to the top but instead they lie in third place after battling out a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers. The two sides had to share the spoils with plenty of good football played at City keeper Nicola Van De Weerdhof pulled off two fine saves from Danielle Sheen and Lagan Makin. At the other end, Krystal Parker denied Shona Franklin but the Foxes nosed in front when Destiney Toussaint hit a 25-yard shot which cannoned off the bar and Issy Hayes rose high to head home the rebound. Five minutes into the second half, Natalie Reay also struck the bar but this time Hayes headed over. Rovers had their passage of play and equalised on 59 minutes when Sheen got to the goal line and crossed for Makin to drill home. The game ebbed and flowed but neither side could find the winner.
Manchester City continue to gather pace and won for the seventh time in eight matches to close in on the leading sides. Sarah Buffel bagged a hat-trick and in-form striker Krystle Johnston added a double as City ran out 7-1 winners over Derby County, their other strikes coming from Danni Young and a Charlotte Farrell penalty.
Preston North End got back to winning ways and their 2-0 success over Leeds City Vixens has brought them back into the promotion race. After a goalless first half, Gemma Watson opened the scoring from the penalty spot early in the second half and Sammy Fleck wrapped up the win with the second goal.
