Doncaster Rovers Belles leapfrogged Nottingham Forest into third place in the National Division on Wednesday night by beating them 4-2 at Carlton Town F.C.
The Belles were given the perfect start as full back Vanessa Leat fired them into a third minute lead with a 25-yard strike. Vicky Exley quickly extended the advantage by curling home a free kick from the edge of the area and Kasia Lipka made sure they were three ahead on the quarter hour, netting her first goal for the club via a 20-yard drive.
Forest gave themselves renewed hope just ahead of half time when Levi Penny slotted home from Beth Bailey's through ball but, barely a minute later, the three-goal deficit was restored, Liz Hansen slotting home from close range. Substitute Dani Duffy pulled a goal back for Forest midway through the second half but there were no further scares for the Belles as they recorded their biggest win of the season so far.
