Gillingham are three points clear in the Southern Division again, after they returned from West Ham Utd with a 3-0 win under their belts.
The Hammers are one of two clubs to have taken points off the Gills this season but on this occasion, the league leaders took full advantage of rivals Cardiff City Ladies' inactivity with goals from Jay Blackie, Charlotte Gurr and Lauren Williams.
Coventry City remain in third place after battling out a 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic. Both goals came very late in the game, Charlton looking as though they would take all three points when youngster Eliz Ibrahim scored on her debut but the Sky Blues earned themselves a share of the spoils via an injury time equaliser from Maz Gauntlett.
Brighton & Hove Albion can still have a good say in the title race and they maintained their interest by beating bottom of the table Chesham Utd 5-0. Tammy Waine scored a hat-trick inside the opening 24 minutes and the Seagulls added a fourth on the stroke of half time through Charley Boswell. Kim Whitcombe rounded off the scoring midway through the second half to leave Brighton ten points behind Gillingham, but with three games in hand.
Portsmouth are beginning to climb the table and are now in the top half but needed some late drama to see them to a 3-2 win over Keynsham Town. Pompey raced into a two-goal lead inside the opening ten minutes with strikes from Lauren Murphy and Gemma Hillier but Keynsham fought back, Rachel Stowell reduced the arrears and Julissa Rodriguez levelled midway through the second half. Keynsham looked on course for a precious point but an injury time penalty from Sarah Kempson broke their hearts and lifted Portsmouth up to fifth.
Lewes inflicted a third successive league defeat on Tottenham Hotspur and climbed above the home side by beating them 3-1. Naomi Cole put the Rookettes ahead after just 45 seconds of play and after Spurs had equalised through Natalie Grafton, Cole scored her second on the stroke of half time. Kelly Newton added a third early in the second half and Lewes saw the game out to take the points, Cole also having two goals disallowed during the game.
