This is what a top of the table clash should look like: An explosive and fiercely competitive Yorkshire derby between Hull City Ladies and Leeds United in front of a crowd of over 500. Goals from Tanser, Lynskey, Ackroyd and Knight ding-donged City to a big win

Leeds started the stronger of the two sides, settling better in to the occasion and deserved their lead inside the opening 20. The visitors switched across the pitch at pace before delivering a good ball in to box, Rousseau controlled turned and finished to add her 8th of the season and open the scoring

City responded and grew in to the game well. Threatening on the break and through set-piece delivery. From a throw in deep in the Leeds half Lynskey found the space. She drove inside with her first touch and picked out the movement of Captain Tanser at the near post to poke home the equaliser 

The Tigresses came out Roaring in the second half. From kick off it should have been 2. A drive forward from Bott picked out Knight who drove a ball across the 6. Tanser, arriving at the back post had the power but found her strike sailing more than nestling

From the resultant GK however City were ahead. A good press forces Leeds to go long, as the second ball came back to the defence, Knight was able to pounce and pinch from the beleaguered centre back – Ackroyd was then able to steal in and fire home low in to the far corner

Then Leeds came again. City failed to deal with, first a long ball and the the resultant corner. A strike from the edge of the box then evaded everyone and nestled in at the far post

Minutes later Leeds were ahead. Another long ball, and former Tigress Laura Bartup was brought down with a push that the referee, failed to see, but in his panic managed to find a handball from the following shot and awarded that instead. The resulting penalty was dispached to restore the visitors lead

The Tigresses responded. Great work from Ackroyd and Thompson opened up half chances, as a deep cross from Bott picked out Tanser again at the back post. Her header just unable to restore parity

And then we were level. Thompson stood over the ball out wide and whipped it in towards the near post. Lynskey rose highest and flicked in beyond the Leeds goalkeeper 

Lynskey played another big role in the winner: First dealing with a long clearance from Wallace, Helen brought that down with ease and played a ball through the retreating Leeds line, as Ackroyd threatened the defender half cleared in to the path of Knight who was able to slot home first time. My god 500 people can make a lot of noise!

As the game ran down, City were down to 10. Dawson picked up her second yellow late on and has a small red mark next to what was otherwise another outstanding performance from the young full back. The old bus parked up well though, and saw through to get the result – though did need the help of the outside of the post late-late in to the added time
