Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle Utd could both celebrate survival in the Northern Division after Wolves' tense filled 2-1 victory at Hednesford.
Wolves led at the break when Anna Perks fired home following a corner but Newcastle fought back strongly after the break as Jessica Havelock equalised with a fine solo goal. Havelock almost scored a second but her powerful shot brought out a fine save from Natalie Hall and Leanne Rimmer made a goal line clearance with a diving header to deny Beth Gardener. Wolves rode out the storm and after Dani Selmes had had a shot saved, another corner led to them scoring the winning goal five minutes from time, substitute Jade Hewitt bundling home from close range.
Sadly it was not to be for Leeds Utd who are relegated from the top flight after going down to a 5-2 defeat away to Derby County. Lorna Abbey marked her last appearance for Derby by getting on the scoresheet along with Paige Crossman, Maz Wayne, Lauren Steadman and Melissa Johnson to give manager John Bennett a winning send off but for Leeds, a club with a proud history, they responded with a brace from Debra Slater but now face the task of regaining their status.
Preston North End still have a chance of the runners-up position following their 4-3 victory away to Nottingham Forest. Katie Anderton opened the scoring for Preston in the 26th minute and Keeleigh Savage doubled their lead when she converted a Beth Stanfield cross, before Natasha Meade reduced the arrears by scoring direct from a corner on the stroke of half time. Andi Bell levelled the scores early in the second half but two goals in a minute from Anderton and Melissa Ball proved to be decisive, despite Bell netting her second for the home side.
Bradford City, whose match away to Champions Sheffield FC was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, have matters very much in their hands but Stoke City stepped up their hopes by running out 5-1 winners over Blackburn Rovers. Jamillah Palmer set Stoke on their way by netting a five minute hat-trick to put her side three ahead with just eighteen minutes on the clock and Chantelle Gallagher added a fourth ahead of the interval. Rio Hardy pulled one back for Blackburn but Jodie Foxhall rounded off the win for Stoke in injury time.
