Although their match with Wolverhampton Wanderers fell victim to a waterlogged pitch, Sheffield FC still remain in a strong position at the top of the Northern Division after second placed Preston North End were held to a 2-2 draw by Leicester City.
Preston had led 2-0 at one stage thanks to Melissa Ball and Sarah Walker who netted inside the opening ten minutes, before Leicester battled back for only their fourth point of the season with goals from Katie Lowder and Kayleigh Steele. This means that Preston are now seven points behind Sheffield who have played two games less whilst Nottingham Forest, who may now be the main challengers, are a further two points adrift and still have eight matches to play.
Sporting Club Albion produced one of their best results of the season so far, running out 4-1 winners at Newcastle Utd to move into fourth place. Robyn James gave Albion an eighth minute lead before Emily Owen and Ashleigh Neville put them in control with goals either side of half time. Stacy Crooks did pull one back for the home side midway through the second half but Neville netted her second just four minutes later to wrap up the points for Albion.
Blackburn Rovers still have a chance of getting back in the title race and they kept those hopes alive by beating Derby County 5-1. Stephanie Marsh set Rovers on their way with two first half goals and Beth Donoghue added a third before the break. An own goal extended Blackburn's lead in the second half and Nichol Forster rounded off the scoring.
