Brighton & Hove Albion opened up a lead of four points at the top of the Southern Division after they defeated Queen's Park Rangers 3-2.
Kim Stenning and Gemma Fraser put the Seagulls two ahead inside the opening twenty minutes with Cherelle Albert reducing the arrears ahead of half time. Beth Curtis then levelled the scores ten minutes into the second half but Stenning popped up to score her second to settle matters with eight minutes remaining.
Colchester Utd are now in second place following their 2-1 success away to West Ham Utd. Lindsey Morgan did give the Hammers a tenth minute lead before the U's hit back with two strikes in the second half, Helen Bass grabbing an equaliser and Kate Longhurst hitting a late winner.
There was also a vital late goal at Portsmouth where the home side were pegged back to a 1-1 draw by Gillingham. Pompey had led for much of the game through Charley Wilson's first half goal but with five minutes left, Natalie Crinean earned the Gills a share of the spoils.
The two newly promoted sides met each other and it was Plymouth Argyle who emerged as 3-2 winners, a result which takes them out of the bottom two. Wendy Martin put Spurs in front with Emily Mousley equalising three minutes before half time. Two second half strikes from in-form striker Tash Knapman was enough to give Argyle the points although they had to withstand a nervous last ten minutes after Rosi Webb had given Spurs late hope.
In the Northern Division, Sheffield FC saw their lead trimmed to two points after they went down to a
6-0 defeat at Leicester City. Natalie Reay bagged a hat-trick along with an Issy Hayes brace and Mel Cook own goal (see match report).
A win would have taken Sporting Club Albion to the top of the table but instead they stay in third place following their 1-1 draw with Manchester City. After a goalless first half, substitute Natasha Baptiste put Albion ahead on the hour mark and nine minutes later City, whose run of four straight wins came to a halt, earned themselves a point with an equaliser from Amanda Goodwin.
