Brett’s finishing and composure massively contributed to Derby’s amazing win against Birmingham.

Goals also came from Holly Otter and Maizey Lancashire who scored multiple goals each.

Emi Humphrey and Hannah Walker added to the tally for Derby in the second half.

Eleanor Humphrey’s strike was the pick of the bunch, as she struck a screamer past the ‘keeper from outside the box.

Birmingham came close on two occasions with shots from Megan Scott and Charlotte Neale hitting the crossbar but they failed to get any real foothold in the game.

Derby capitalised on set-pieces with three of their goals coming from corners.

The match also saw first year football journalist Tom Morris step in as referee for the first 20 minutes of the match.
