Newcastle Utd took another huge stride towards Northern Division safety as they came from behind to beat Blackburn Rovers 3-2.
The Magpies had ended an eight-match losing streak seven days earlier but have now claimed two victories on the trot, having taken a 13th minute lead through Jess Foster. Blackburn hit back well and Chloe Adams levelled just before the half hour, then Nichol Forster ensured that the Lancashire side led going into the break.
The game remained in Blackburn's hands until seventeen minutes from time when Niamh McLaughlin fired home the equaliser and the decisive moment of the match came as Newcastle were awarded a penalty which was disputed by Rovers but leading scorer Beth Gardner stepped up to score from the spot and give her side three precious points.
To complete a miserable day for Blackburn, they found themselves at the foot of the table after Wolverhampton Wanderers ran out 3-0 winners over Derby County. Amber Quick opened the scoring for Wolves after being put through by Becky Hall and Dani Selmes netted the second from the penalty spot after she had been fouled. The game was made safe early in the second half when Quick was brought down in the area and Selmes converted a second penalty to complete her side's best performance of the season.
