Nottingham Forest came from behind to beat Tranmere Rovers 3-2 and stretch their lead at the top of the Northern Division to seven points.
With rivals Lincoln City not in action, Forest had the opportunity to pull further away and looked on course as Beth Bailey fired them in front from a free kick. However, Tranmere came back strongly and went in front at half time, with goals from Nicky Corbett and Sue Kenwright. The Birkenhead side seemed to be on their way to victory but goals in a five minute spell from Natalie Clarke and substitute Kirsty Robson gave Forest a precious victory.
Preston North End were unable to move into second place as they went down to a 2-1 defeat at home to Sunderland. Sarah McCrea gave Preston the lead shortly before half time but Sunderland were back on terms midway through the second half via a long range free kick from captain Steph Bannon, and Steph O'Brien netted the winner from the penalty spot and Natalie Gutteridge had been fouled.
Stockport County got back to winning ways by beating Aston Villa 2-0. Keeleigh Savage put them ahead shortly before half time with a half volley from Caroline Price's cross and the young striker completed her double after the break, heading home the rebound after Krystle Johnson had struck the bar.
Two wins in a row for Sheffield Wednesday, whose 4-2 success at Newcastle Utd takes them towards the top half of the table. Rachel Furness, on her return from injury, gave the home side a first half lead which was cancelled out before the break by Beth Gingell. Sarah Smith put Wednesday in front and they added goals in quick succession through Cheryl Mawhood and Leanne De Silva, with Furness completing her double for Newcastle.
Rotherham Utd gained a crucial 3-2 win against Manchester City to narrow the gap between themselves and the teams directly above them. An early own goal by Charlotte Farrell put Rotherham ahead with Katie Brusell equalising on the half hour. After the break, Kerry Longstone and an own goal earned the Yorkshire side the points, despite a late reply from Ellena Turner.
