Northern Division 1 title-chasers Brighouse set up an even bigger test at Sunderland, by beating FA WPL top flight Derby County.

The visitors went in front after only 7 minutes, when a Becky Kendall corner was headed back across goal by Cara Mahoney for Jodie Redgrave to tap home.

The Rams levelled a minute before the break, Nikki Ledgister winning possession and her pull-back was turned into the net by Lisa Giampalma.

The underdogs retook the lead 10 minutes after the restart though, Redgrave volleying into the top corner.

After being denied by the bar, Brighouse sealed the win in the last minute, Annabelle Cass with an impressive finish.
