Leicester back on top
 Women's Football News 13 Dec 2011
 
With Manchester City having their game postponed, Leicester City regained the leadership of the Northern Division by beating Preston North End 2-1. 
 
Leicester had to battle hard against a well drilled Preston side and both sides had chances in the first period, Foxes' Shona Franklin just dragged her shot wide after a good run and at the other end, Nicola Van de Weerdhof had to make a good save from Gemma Watson. The second period was played in heavy rain but the Holmes Park pitch played superbly. City took the lead in the 53rd minute when Natasha Hughes broke through and hit a fierce shot but North End defender Alison Taberner could only head the ball into her own net. A minute later Melissa Ball put the visitors level with a fine strike but the Foxes nosed back in front in the 58th minute with good build up play when Hughes lashed in a shot but the unlucky Taberner again could only help it into the net. Both sides deserve credit for an excellent game.
 
Sporting Club Albion had the opportunity to go back on top but their title challenge may have been dealt a fatal blow as they were defeated 2-0 by improving Derby County. Cara Newton and Michelle Kilmartin netted the goals for the Rams who stay fifth and are finishing the season strongly.
 
Blackburn Rovers are just behind after they claimed a 3-2 victory away to Rotherham Utd. Danielle Sheen and Nikki Twohig put Blackburn two ahead with Nat Shaw reducing the arrears on the hour. Lizzie Ince restored Rovers' two-goal advantage before Shaw netted her second, but Blackburn held on to take the points.
