Forest soar to top of the table
 Women's Football News 17 Sep 2007
Forest soar to top of the table - 17 Sep 2007 - Women's Football NewsNottingham Forest top the Northern Division for the first time in their history after they completed an excellent week by winning 2-1 away to Stockport County.
On a very windy pitch it was the away side that had it in their favour in the first half, pushing County back into their own half and Forest took the lead midway through the first period when Beth Bailey finished clinically, low into the bottom corner of the goal. Forest went further ahead early in the second half when Andi Bell broke through to score but then, with the wind blowing to the home side's advantage, County started to push the visitors back and were unlucky not to score when Chloe Spencer hit the bar. With ten minutes remaining, County did manage to get themselves back into the game when Keeleigh Savage pulled one back but Forest held out for their fifth successive victory.
After having been beaten in midweek, Preston North End bounced back to form with a 5-2 victory over fellow high fliers Aston Villa. The damage was inflicted in the first half where Preston scored all five goals, Sarah McCrea netting in the opening minute before Louise Cafferkey and Gemma Watson also found the net before the quarter hour. Hannah Bailey added the fourth and McCrea scored her second before half time. In the second half, Carly Davies and Stacey Arrowsmith pulled goals back for Villa but it was not enough to prevent their second defeat of the season. Preston are now in second, by virtue of having scored one less goal than Nottingham Forest.
Sunderland's good run of form has lifted them into third place, notching up their fourth win in a row when beating Rotherham Utd 4-1. Jess Clarke's early goal for Sunderland was cancelled out by Katie Hanson and the game appeared to be heading for a draw until the last five minutes, when Clarke restored her side's lead and two late strikes from Sarah Danby wrapped up the points for Sunderland.
Lincoln City got back to winning ways by defeating Newcastle Utd 5-1, a result which means that the top six teams are covered by just three points. Jodie Snelson put the Lady Imps ahead in the second minute with Megan Harris and Kirsty Richardson also scoring before half time. Sophie Williams reduced the arrears for Newcastle, five minutes after the restart, but Lincoln went on to complete the victory with two goals from Stacey Aisthorpe.
Sheffield Wednesday were another team to strike late as they won 3-1 at Manchester City. Rachel Skeemer's first half goal was cancelled out by Danielle Young for City but, in the last ten minutes Skeemer and strike partner Sarah Smith ensured that Wednesday claimed their second victory of the season.
Tranmere Rovers are also up into a mid-table position after they ran out 4-1 victors against Crewe Alexandra, who are still unable to get off the mark. Crewe had taken an early lead through Emma Lambourne but Sarah Manning quickly equalised and Debbie Cartmel sent Tranmere into half time with the lead. Two second half goals from Sue Kenwright saw the Birkenhead side home for three valuable points whilst Crewe's worrying start continues.
