OOH Lincoln have stretched their lead at the top of the Northern Division to nine points as they stormed to a 7-1 victory over Rotherham Utd.
Stacey Aisthorpe struck a hat-trick inside four minutes, within the opening quarter hour and although Caroline Wood reduced the arrears, Leandra Little added a fourth for the Lady Imps before half time. Aisthorpe found the net once again midway through the second half and further goals from strike duo Amanda Barr and Jodie Michalska completed the tally. The result means that Rotherham need to win both their remaining games to stand any chance of finishing outside the bottom two.
Sunderland meanwhile suffered a setback to their chances as they went down to a 1-0 defeat away to Manchester City. The F.A.Women's Cup finalists were brought down to earth after last week's heroics as City defended superbly and goalkeeper Andrea Worrall was in outstanding form. The only goal of the game came in the 56th minute when Ellie Turner converted a cross by Sarah Penney, the resulting lifting City into fourth.
Newcastle Utd are back in third after they defeated Leicester City 2-0. A closely fought game was settled midway through the second half when the Magpies netted twice in three minutes, Melanie Reay giving them the lead with Beth Gardner adding the second.
A 3-0 win away to Curzon Ashton means that Reading FC Women still have their sights on a top half finish but the Lancashire side are still not safe yet. The first half ended goalless but Melissa Fletcher put Reading in front four minutes after the restart and they went on to add further goals through Jo Chubb and Jen Osmond.
Preston North End are well on their way to safety as they notched up their third win in a row, an impressive 4-0 success against Aston Villa. After Preston goalkeeper Emma Reader had saved an early penalty, Laura Walker gave the Lilywhites the lead and Gemma Watson soon added a second. On the hour mark, Watson scored with a superb 25-yard volley and Sarah Walker wrapped up the win with the final goal.
Sheffield Wednesday lifted themselves out of the bottom two at the expense of Tranmere Rovers by beating them 4-1. Beth Gingell opened the scoring for Wednesday and Tanya Rich netted the second before Lindsey Smith pulled a goal back for Tranmere on the stroke of half time. However Wednesday were two goals ahead again within a minute of the restart as Rachel Skeemer scored and Rich completed her double with twenty minutes remaining.
