A last gasp equaliser earned Nottingham Forest a vital 4-4 draw against Aston Villa but their lead at the top of the Northern Division has been trimmed to three points.
Natalie Clarke twice gave Forest a first half lead, the first goal from the penalty spot being cancelled out by a Kelly Clarke equaliser. Natalie Courtney then levelled the scores again for Villa who went into the interval with a 3-2 lead, thanks to Abby Cockayne. Catherine Lawson missed a penalty for Forest early after the restart and Kelly Clarke then scored her second goal to put Villa two goals ahead but Forest salvaged a point with a late comeback. Firstly, as the game went into injury time, they were awarded a third penalty from which Natalie Clarke converted to complete her hat-trick, then Ellie Gilliatt volleyed home from a free kick to round off the scoring.
Lincoln City meanwhile ran out 3-0 winners over Manchester City to narrow the gap on Forest. Kirsty Richardson gave the Lady Imps a fifth minute lead which was doubled on the half hour by Stacey Aisthorpe. Jodie Snelson completed the scoring late on with her 22nd goal of the season.
The four matches in the division yielded a total of 22 goals on Sunday, including seven at Rotherham Utd where visitors Tranmere Rovers picked up a vital 4-3 victory which takes them out of the bottom two. Gemma McCool gave Rotherham a tenth minute lead with Vicky Abbott and Sarah Manning hitting back to put Tranmere in front, but Kerry Jones levelled the scores shortly before half time. Kerry Longstone put Rotherham ahead once again but Katie Bagley equalised eight minutes from time and Manning scored her second, and the winner for Tranmere, in the dying minutes.
Crewe Alexandra moved out of the relegation zone for the first time this season following their 2-2 draw with Sheffield Wednesday. Emma Lambourne's early goal for Crewe was cancelled out by Lucy Foreman and Rachel Skeemer put Wednesday in front before half time. Amanda Goodwin equalised five minutes after the restart to earn Crewe a point which helps boost their battle against the drop.
