Colchester Utd held on to their five point lead at the top of the Southern Division with a 2-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle.
After the first half ended goalless, Maegen Doyle put the U's ahead in the opening minute of the second half but it wasn't until late on that Femi Walker wrapped up the points for Colchester with the second goal.
Portsmouth are now leading the chasing sides and still have matters in their own hands after they defeated Queen's Park Rangers 4-0. Jemma Tewkesbury kept up her good run of form by giving Pompey a 35th minute lead and Charley Wilson added a second ahead of the break. Gemma Hillier put Portsmouth further in front early in the second half and Wilson rounded off the scoring by completing her double with a superbly struck volley.
West Ham Utd suffered a slight setback to their title challenge as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Gillingham. A Lauren Williams own goal had put the Hammers in front but they were pegged back by a strike from Natalie Crinean, who netted against her old club. West Ham now face a crucial match against league leaders Colchester this Sunday.
Brighton & Hove Albion moved back into fourth, courtesy of a 3-2 win against Millwall Lionesses who remain at the foot of the table. Kim Stenning and Kim Whitcombe had put the Seagulls two ahead but they needed to withstand a fightback from Millwall, who levelled the scores through an own goal and Charlotte Gurr. However Stenning netted a decisive goal for Brighton to give her side the points.
Tottenham Hotspur guaranteed themselves safety and left opponents Keynsham Town deep in trouble after they beat them 4-0. Bianca Baptiste had a fine day for Spurs, bagging a hat-trick with Jess Cheeseman adding the other goal.
