With the top two in the Southern Division not in league action on Sunday, their two nearest rivals took the chance to narrow the gap on them and keep their own title hopes alive.
Portsmouth are now in third place on goal difference following their 4-1 victory over Chesham Utd. Pompey took a sixteenth lead when Sarah Kempson netted from the penalty spot and after Gemma Fraser had equalised for the home side, Gemma Simmonds put Portsmouth back in front shortly before half time. Kempson extended their lead midway through the second half via a 20-yard strike and with fourteen minutes left, she went on to complete her hat-trick by scoring from close range following a corner.
Coventry City meanwhile remain well in contention after beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0. Maz Gauntlett scored the only goal of the game for the Sky Blues to keep her side level on points with Portsmouth and just six points off the pace.
Charlton Athletic complete the top half of the table and climbed above Lewes by defeating them 3-2. The Addicks led by the only goal of the game at half time, scored by Kit Graham, but the Rookettes fought back after the break and levelled the scores through Kelly Newton. Sam Pittuck then struck twice in an eight minute spell and this proved to be just enough to give Charlton the victory, despite Catherine O'Hagan pulling one back for Lewes in injury time.
