Leaders Gillingham's run of four straight wins was brought to a temporary halt after they were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham Utd.
In a well contested game, the Gills found Hammers goalkeeper Toni-Anne Wayne in excellent form but they took the lead in the opening minute of the second half through a looping header from Emma Tune. They stayed in front until seven minutes from time when Cherrelle Albert equalised with a superb 30-yard strike which earned West Ham a share of the spoils.
Cardiff City Ladies moved to within one point of the leadership as they eased to a 4-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. Sarah Wiltshire gave the South Wales side a lead which was increased by an own goal ahead of the break, with Bethan Lloyd scoring twice after the break to make it four wins on the trot for Cardiff.
Coventry City are in third, their highest position of the season to date, following their 1-0 win away to Charlton Athletic. Destiney Toussaint scored the only goal of the game for the Sky Blues, just after the half hour mark (see match report).
Portsmouth lifted themselves into a mid-table position after they defeated Lewes 5-1. The teams had already met twice before this season with the Rookettes winning on each occasion, but this time Pompey exacted revenge with a four-goal first half blast in windy conditions. Charley Wilson gave them a fifth minute lead, with Leeta Rutherford and Sarah Kempson adding further goals before Wilson netted her second on the stroke of half time. Catherine O'Hagan reduced the arrears for Lewes seven minutes into the second half but Kempson rounded off the win for Portsmouth late on with a 25-yard strike for her second goal.
Chesham Utd recorded their first ever Premier League victory and have gone level on points with Keynsham Town after beating them 2-1 in the clash between the two sides at the foot of the table. Gemma Fraser gave Chesham a first half lead which was cancelled out ten minutes later by Julissa Rodriguez, before Kate Bowers scored a late winner to give the Clarets their first points of the season.
