Derby's red letter day
 Women's Football News 14 Oct 2013
 
Derby County are on top of the Northern Division for the first time in their history after they defeated Sporting Club Albion 2-1. 
 
First blood fell to the Rams when Paige Crossman broke through, firing the ball in at the far post for a fine solo effort. Melissa Johnson added the second with another solo strike, breaking through the defence to finish nicely. Derby had chances to increase their lead with Nikki Ledgister unable to beat Albion keeper Becky Thomas in a one-on-one. Albion ramped up the pressure as the second half wore on, only to find keeper Sarah Morgan equal to everything and restricting Derby to counter attacks. With five minutes to go, Jenna Connor-Iommi spearheaded a fightback when she lobbed home to reduce the arrears but Derby had enough to see the game out and climb to the top of the league.
 
Preston North End were unable to take an opportunity to take over the leadership when they were beaten 4-2 by Newcastle Utd. Preston did go into a two-goal lead through strikes from Rebecca Foster and Paige Forster but Newcastle fought back strongly, Beth Gardner and Jessica Foster each netting twice to give Newcastle a victory which takes them into fifth place, just two points off the pace.
 
Leeds Utd got back to winning ways and lifted themselves out of the bottom two as they edged out Blackburn Rovers by the odd goal in five. Leeds took the lead with two minutes on the clock through a well taken goal by Abbie McIver and Emma Bentley soon added a second. Katie Anderton pulled a goal back for Blackburn on 19 minutes from the penalty spot following a foul on Nichol Forster. Midway through the second half, McIver latched on to a through ball from Olivia Thackray to score her second goal and this proved to be enough to give Leeds the points, despite Amy Bland halving the deficit for the home side in the dying minutes.
