Gillingham extended their lead at the top of the Southern Division to three points after they won 3-1 away to Charlton Athletic.
Lisa Fulgence put the Gills ahead after six minutes and Charlotte Gurr netted her sixth goal of the season from the penalty spot, just before the half hour. Danielle Carlton curled home the third on the hour and although Kristina Manktelow pulled a goal back through a 25-yard strike, Gillingham held on for their third win in four games.
The other unbeaten team in the division are second placed Tottenham Hotspur who staged a late comeback to win 3-2 at Keynsham Town. Spurs led at half time through a Wendy Martin goal but Keynsham hit back strongly after the break, Julissa Rodriguez set up former England international Rachel Stowell to equalise and then Leanne Lapham headed in a Katarzyna Rusek cross. With five minutes left, Martin scored her second to level the scores once more and Spurs took the points in injury time when substitute Mollie Kmita headed in the winning goal.
West Ham Utd are up to third following their 5-2 victory over Chesham Utd. Vicky Gallagher gave Chesham a first half lead but two goals in a minute from Katie Bottom and Jade Skillen ensured the Hammers led at the interval. Kelley Blanchflower then added a third and although Gemma Fraser reduced the arrears for Chesham, Natalie Crinean and Cherelle Albert went on to seal victory for West Ham.
There was another late winner at Lewes where the home side kept up their good start to the season by beating Portsmouth 2-1. Pompey took a 31st minute lead when Kaylee Schumann-Edwards scored from a corner but after the break, Catherine O'Hagan equalised for the Rookettes. The game looked destined for a draw until the second minute of injury time when a calm finish from Naomi Cole gave Lewes their second home win in succession and fourth place in the table.
Coventry City and Cardiff City Ladies met at the Ricoh Arena and it was visitors Cardiff who returned home with the points and a 1-0 victory under their belts. A close game was settled in the 56th minute when Kelly Aldridge scored the only goal of the match.
