Preston win vital clash
 Women's Football News 11 Apr 2016
 
Preston North End gave their Northern Division title hopes a shot in the arm by winning their top of the table clash 2-1 against second placed Stoke City. 
 
Lagan Makin and Yasmine Swarbrick were both on target for Preston, with Hannah Keryakoplis pulling one back for Stoke late on. Preston therefore go eight points clear at the top but only have one game left to play, whilst Stoke have four games in hand.
 
Third placed Blackburn Rovers faced a tough trip away to Bradford City and neither team would have been overly satisfied with the resulting 2-2 draw in terms of a title challenge. After a goalless first half, Sophie Jones headed Rovers in front but ten-player Bradford battled back to go ahead through a Danielle Whitham penalty and Hannah Campbell, before Lynda Shepherd equalised for Blackburn in the dying minutes.
 
Sporting Club Albion moved up into fourth and have matters in their hands following their 2-1 win at Derby County. Leigh Dugmore netted both goals for Albion, who have dropped the least number of points, with Nicole Ledgister replying for Derby.
 
Nottingham Forest received a huge setback to their challenge when they were beaten 1-0 by Newcastle Utd, whose own worries about finishing in the bottom two appear to be eased. Chloe Johnson scored the only goal of the game for Newcastle, midway through the second half.
 
Huddersfield Town maintained their improving form with a 2-1 success away to Loughborough Foxes. The first half ended goalless but Emily Heckler, and a late strike from Katie Barnes, gave Huddersfield the points despite the Foxes replying through Lisa Giampalma.
 
Nuneaton Town and Guiseley AFC Vixens met each other in a crucial match at the foot of the table and it was Nuneaton who leapfrogged their opponents, and out of the bottom two, after winning 4-2. Leah Jones gave Guiseley a first half lead which was cancelled out before the break by Nicola Foskett, who went on to net her second on the hour. Sarah Rowles and Kayleigh Steele went on to secure three valuable points for Nuneaton with further strikes, before Katie Anderton reduced the arrears late on.
