Burton Albion Ladies came from behind to secure a 2-1 victory over Long Eaton United Ladies, to extend their winning run to four in the league.
Jordan Atkin was potent in front of goal once again, scoring both goals to take her tally up to seven for the season.
However, it was Long Eaton that got the first goal of the game. Last season's FA WPL Midlands Division One top goal scorer Cara Newton headed home from an in-swinging corner to give the Blues the lead after 22 minutes.
Captain Charlotte Worth lead by example, as she reacted to her team going down for the first time this campaign which a charging run down the flank. Yet no one was there to meet her cross and get the Brewers back into the game.
Atkin had the chance to equalise eight minutes later. Good pressure from Sophie Corden lead to a back pass which was pounced upon by the striker, but went wide of the post.
Brewers Ladies headed into half-time trailing, but that was changed just four minutes after the restart.
Charlotte Emery – returning to the first team – played the ball through to Atkin who buried it beyond the goalkeeper to even the score.
In what was an end to end game, with both teams desperate for the three points, Erica Turner produced a great save from a volley to deny Long Eaton their second of the evening.
That proved to be a crucial moment in the match as Burton went in search of a winner. Jemma Grimadell, Emery and substitute Charlotte Cresswell all had opportunities to test the 'keeper but it was Atkin who struck once more.
The striker latched onto Emery’s through ball and raced clear before rounding the 'keeper and tapping home to claim all three points.
Following victory, manager Jack White said: "We are very happy to have come away from the game with all three points to maintain our winning run.
"Everyone at this level knows that Long Eaton United are a good side with many talented players. They scored a nice goal and thoroughly deserved to be leading at the break."
Having not fallen behind so far this season, White spoke about his half-time team talk: "We had a positive conversation at half-time where it was clear that all the players knew that they hadn’t be anywhere near their best, but were capable of getting something if they raised their game to recent levels.
"They also wanted to reward the fans for their fantastic support.
"It was nice to get the equalising goal so early in the second half and that gave us something to build on," he said. "Long Eaton United continued to play well but our defence has been really strong so far this season and became capable of not only winning the ball but now doing positive things with it."
White continued: "Our attacking players are always a threat and we knew that if everyone stuck to the plan we were only one chance away from scoring again, which is what we did."
