Two second half goals saw Reading FC Women to a 2-1 win away to Tottenham Hotspur which keeps them on top of the Southern Division on goal difference.
After the first half had ended goalless, Stacie Donnelly opened the scoring for Reading early after the restart and Becky Jane added a second five minutes later. Sam Pittuck pulled a goal back for Spurs from the penalty spot but Reading held on for an important result.
Millwall Lionesses ensured they remain level on points with the Royals as they also won on their travels, 1-0 at Queen's Park Rangers. The only goal of the game came ten minutes into the second half when substitute Josie Elliott settled matters in Millwall's favour.
Brighton & Hove Albion's title chances received a setback when they were held to a 1-1 draw by improving Colchester Utd. The Seagulls had led for much of the game through Kim Stenning's eleventh goal of the season, midway through the first half, but the U's hit back and earned themselves a share of the spoils when Kate Longhurst equalised with eleven minutes remaining.
West Ham Utd meanwhile kept their hopes alive by winning 2-0 away to Gillingham. Becky Merritt opened the scoring for the Hammers in the fifth minute of the second half and Hannah Gowland wrapped up the points with the second goal late on.
One match was played in the Northern Division and it produced a significant result in terms of the title race. A victory would have taken Preston North End top of the table but instead they went down to a 2-0 defeat away to Newcastle Utd. The scoreline was goalless at the interval but ten minutes after the restart, Stacy Crooks gave the Magpies the lead with a goal which takes her to the top of the division's scoring chart and Elizabeth Fraser wrapped up the win with the second on the hour mark.
