Colchester Utd kept their Southern Division title challenge on course with a narrow 3-2 win away to Keynsham Town.
Zoe Rushen and Emily Heaslip had put the U's two ahead during the first half, with Kelly Aldridge reducing the arrears early after the break. Rushen then headed in her second goal which ultimately proved decisive, despite Suzanne Grant giving Keynsham hope by pulling a goal back.
With West Ham Utd's match having been postponed, Colchester now lead the table by five points from Portsmouth who also won 3-2, against Brighton & Hove Albion, to go second. However Pompey had to fight from two goals behind as Carly Noakes and Kim Whitcombe both struck for the Seagulls. Jemma Tewkesbury pulled a goal back for Portsmouth who then went on to equalise as Shelly Cox netted the rebound after Charley Wilson's initial shot had come back off the post. Cox then turned provider for the winning goal, her cross being headed in by Tewkesbury to give Pompey three vital points.
Gillingham's remaining promotion chances were ended as they went down to a surprise 2-0 defeat at home to Plymouth Argyle, who produced their best performance of the season to greatly boost their survival hopes. After a goalless first half, Rebekah Rose fired Argyle ahead with a powerful strike from the edge of the area and Laura Perrett, who also had a penalty saved, sealed the points via a 25-yard free kick.
Millwall Lionesses also claimed a vital win with a 4-0 success against Tottenham Hotspur. Kasia Viggor put Millwall ahead early on when she finished off from a Shauni Griffiths cross and an own goal doubled their advantage. Kayleigh Vidhas volleyed home the third and Viggor rounded off a great day for her side by completing her brace, racing onto Charlotte Gurr's pinpoint through ball to score.
