Wolverhampton Wanderers have leapt out of the bottom three in the Northern Division after continuing their revival with a 4-2 win away to Blackburn Rovers.
Things did look bleak for Wolves at half time as Nichol Forster gave Blackburn an eleventh minute lead which was doubled moments before the interval by Rio Hardy. However after the break, Wolves, now playing with the wind behind them, quickly pulled a goal back through Dominique Luke, then two goals in four minutes from Laura McQuilkin and Dani Selmes turned things around in their favour. Leila Hopkins netted with fourteen minutes left to seal a win which takes Wolves off the bottom, having been adrift at one stage, with Blackburn taking their place albeit with games in hand on their rivals.
Newcastle Utd are also looking anxious over their shoulders following a 3-1 reverse at home to Sporting Club Albion. Jamie-Leigh Fowler, Summer Holmes and Phillippa Humphrey were all on target for Albion, with Newcastle's consolation coming from Megan Pyper.
Champions Sheffield FC now have a lead of thirteen points following their 4-0 victory over Derby County. Issy Hayes netted the only goal of the first half for the title winners and after the break, Lisa Giampalma contributed a brace before Hayes rounded off the scoring with her second late on.
Bradford City stepped up their challenge for the runners-up spot after they beat current second place incumbents Nottingham Forest 1-0, Charlotte Stuart scoring the only goal of the game.
Preston North End can also finish in the higher places if they can win their remaining matches and did their cause no harm as Paige Forster, Katie Anderton and an own goal gave them a 3-1 win against Stoke City.
