Portsmouth are back in third place after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Charlton Athletic.

Brighton & Hove Albion kept up their unbeaten run and were winners over Cardiff City for the second time in three weeks. First half goals from Vicky Vickery and Amy Found gave the Seagulls a 2-1 victory, despite Ellie Davies pulling a goal back for Cardiff with twenty minutes remaining.
Keynsham Town won an entertaining match 3-1 against Colchester Utd to keep their slim hopes alive. Leanne Lapham gave them an early lead which was doubled ten minutes before half time by Kayleigh Sage. Lapham scored her second after the break and was unlucky not to complete her hat-trick when her header struck the bar. Colchester scored a late consolation through Lily Mellors, who also hit the post with a header.
WFC Fulham picked up a valuable point when sharing a goalless draw with Queen's Park Rangers in their local derby. However the Whites are still marooned in the bottom two by seven points whilst Rangers stay just below mid-table.
