Portsmouth staged a stunning comeback to beat Gillingham 3-2 and throw the Southern Division title race wide open.
The Gills went into the game requiring a win to send them back to the top of the table and looked to be well on their way when Charlotte Gurr and Lisa Fulgence sent them into a two-goal lead. However Pompey hit back straight away with Sarah Kempson scoring from the penalty spot and Charley Wilson levelled the scores early in the second half. With five minutes left, Lucy Quinn settled matters with the winning goal for Pompey who are now level on points with leaders Cardiff City Ladies and Gillingham are one point adrift in third.
Pompey's fightback was almost bettered by Keynsham Town who went down 4-3 to Charlton Athletic after having trailed by four goals at half time. The Addicks went ahead in the second minute when Stef Simmons scored from the penalty spot and they looked to be cruising to victory when Kit Graham doubled their lead and Charley Clifford added a further two before the break. Olivera Markovic pulled one back, ten minutes after the restart, before Maria Garcia Villabla further raised Keynsham hopes. Leanne Lapham then scored with five minutes left to bring a nervy finish for Charlton but they held on to keep their title hopes alive.
Coventry City are now just three points off the pace following their 1-0 success away to Brighton & Hove Albion. Ashleigh Neville scored the only goal of the game midway through the second half to keep the Sky Blues well in the running.
Lewes and Tottenham Hotspur battled out a 1-1 draw which keeps both teams around the mid-table positions. Spurs had taken an early lead when Danielle Marcoci scored from close range, before Catherine O'Hagan earned her side a share of the spoils from the penalty spot with fifteen minutes remaining.
