However it was Forest who got the vital breakthrough five minutes before half time, Lawson completing her hat-trick from the penalty spot. Beth Bailey extended the lead on the hour and further goals from Natalie Clarke and Cath Stainthorpe sewed up a hard fought victory which keeps Forest four points ahead.
Lincoln City kept up the pressure in second place by beating Rotherham Utd 3-0.

Another team to leave it late were Sunderland as they defeated Stockport County 2-1 to move above them into fifth. Caroline Price's early goal seemed to be enough to earn County the points but goals in the last five minutes from Jess Clarke and Jessica Havelock turned the match in Sunderland's favour.
Sheffield Wednesday picked up an important win which takes them into a mid-table position. Rachel Skeemer scored the only goal of the game to give Wednesday a 1-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra, who remain at the foot of the table.
The points were shared at Manchester City where the home side battled out a goalless draw with Newcastle Utd which means that both teams stay just below the middle of the table.
