It was Serena Fletcher causing chaos down the right-hand side, a driving run into the box allowed her to take a shot only for the keeper to save, it fell to Mia Parry on the edge of the Box whose shot was deflected into the path of Fletcher, her shot was then blocked on the line.
It was Elford again who fired town into the lead after a quick passing move between Elford and Sanderson meant the striker could curl a shot off the woodwork and into the back of the net to the delight of the home crowd.
Town could have found themselves two ahead in a matter of minutes after a driving run from Kate Mallin gave her space to play a ball over to Sanderson whose shot went wide.
The last chance of the half again was courtesy of Mallin a looping free kick was poorly dealt with by the Feds keeper who punched clear Parry’s ball in found the head of Elford, which went straight to the arms of the ‘keeper.
The second half ran the same course as the first with Town dictating play and not allowing Liverpool Feds anytime on the ball.
The first chance coming 10 minutes into the half as Katie Anderson played a ball into Elford, her knock down was met by Sanderson whose shot flew over the bar.
It was Mallin who sealed all three points with 10 to go her long range effort was saved by the Feds keeper only for it to loop into the back of the net.
That was how it finished with Town seeing out the result with no real attacking threat from the visitors as Town move up to third in the table ahead of a trip to AFC Fylde next weekend.
