Jenna Carroll then ensured that Preston led going into the break and Sarah Walker added a fourth, three minutes into the second half. Nichol Forster gave Blackburn renewed hope as she pulled a goal back and with five minutes remaining, Anderton completed her second hat-trick in successive weeks to earn her side a valuable point.
Newcastle Utd had started the day on top of the table but they crashed to a 6-0 defeat away to Sporting Club Albion, who are up into second place. Tash Baptiste gave Albion a fifth minute lead before adding a second on the half hour mark and Kayleigh Griffiths increased their lead ahead of the interval. Baptiste finished off her hat-trick early in the second half with Kelly Darby and Ashleigh Neville rounding off a resounding victory.

Dani Selmes latched on to a Becky Hall through ball to give Wolves a fifth minute lead but Kayleigh Mitchell quickly headed Sheffield level and Jodie Michalska put them in front. Selmes scored her second goal to equalise midway through the second half but a minute later, Sheffield settled matters when Catherine Lawson netted the winning goal from the penalty spot.
