The top three teams in the Southern Division table are all level on points and just eight points cover the entire table following Sunday's results.
Portsmouth remain as leaders despite going down to a 1-0 defeat away to Brighton & Hove Albion, who have the same number of points in third place. Kim Whitcombe settled matters with the only goal of the game in the twelfth minute.
Sandwiched inbetween the two South Coast clubs, in second place, are West Ham Utd who were 3-0 winners over Queen's Park Rangers. Jess Barling fired the Hammers into a second minute lead and they went on to seal victory with second half goals from Becky Merritt and Elen Hein.
A 2-2 draw with Millwall Lionesses has lifted Tottenham Hotspur into fourth, their highest position so far. Spurs had looked to be on their way to victory when Miranda Hill and Wendy Martin put them two up inside the opening sixteen minutes but a late fightback from the Lionesses earned them a point. Despite being reduced to ten players with Sinead Fitzsimmons was red carded, Kasia Viggor pulled a goal back with seven minutes remaining and Jo Woodgates slotted home an injury time penalty to give her side a share of the spoils.
Honours were also shared as Colchester Utd and Keynsham Town finished level at 2-2. Maegen Doyle gave the U's a first half lead which was cancelled out ahead of the interval by Juliana Da Silva. Kayleigh Sage put Keynsham in front after the break, before another penalty secured a point for Colchester, this time converted by Emily Heaslip.
Plymouth Argyle put their recent run of poor results behind them with their first win in five matches, 4-1 against Gillingham. Argyle netted all of their goals in the first half, Tash Knapman scoring twice along with Laura Perrett and Katie Middleton. Natalie Crinean grabbed a second half consolation for the Gills but Plymouth saw the game out for the result which takes them off the bottom.
