Keynsham Town returned to the top of the Southern Division following a hard fought 1-0 victory over Colchester Utd.
Both sides had chances in what was an open game between the two high flying sides but found goalkeepers Nikita Runnacles and Amber Thornell in good form. However with ten minutes remaining, Keynsham claimed the points when Corinne Yorston scored with a powerful header from a Katarzyna Rusek corner.
West Ham Utd are back in second place, on goal difference, after their local derby with Charlton Athletic finished level at 1-1. Nina Downham headed the Hammers into the lead on fourteen minutes and the striker went close to a second when she struck the bar. Charlton lost Kristina Manktelow with an ankle ligament injury after the break but pressed strongly after the break and were awarded an injury time penalty when Toni-Anne Wayne was penalised for a foul on Toni Alden. Gemma Bryan earned her side a point by scoring from the spot, the first goal West Ham have conceded in the league this season.
Portsmouth climbed into third place on the back of a 3-0 victory away to Cardiff City. Molly Clark was heavily involved in the win, putting Pompey ahead midway through the first half through a 20-yard strike and then, ten minutes after the break, she provided the corner for Kirsty McGee to head in the second. After ten further minutes, the same two players combined again, this time a Clark free kick which was volleyed home by McGee from close range.
The two newly promoted sides met each other at Gillingham and it was visitors Yeovil Town who returned home with points, winning 1-0 to claim their first ever Premier League victory. Jemma Tewkesbury kept up her superb form by netting for the fourth successive match, scoring the only goal with eight minutes remaining.
Brighton & Hove Albion also won for the first time, 2-0 against Queen's Park Rangers who are still seeking their first points. Kim Stenning was the hero for Brighton as she scored both goals, one in each half.
