Liverpool seemed to be in control of the Merseyside derby against Everton from the early stages - only lacking the final product, as all of their efforts on goal were off-target in the first half-hour.

However, they finally found the net in the 32nd minute through German winger Nicole Rolser.

Ten minutes after the break, Everton ladies drew level through midfielder Jill Scott, who scrambled home a goal from a half-cleared corner.

But the Reds were back in front within 10 minutes with a great finish from Swedish midfielder Louise Fors.

Fors had another excellent effort on goal in the 73rd minute, which was parried by Everton keeper Lizzy Durack, but German defender Corina Schroder managed to poke the rebound past the Everton keeper and into the net - taking the game beyond Everton.

Despite the game being all but won, Liverpool ladies continued to play their hearts out. Natasha Dowie was on target in the final mites of the match against her former club - scored her ninth goal of the season.

This result puts Liverpool ladies three points clear at the top of the table, ahead of Bristol Academy Women, who have a game in hand.
