Cardiff City Ladies held on to the leadership of the Southern Division with a 3-2 victory over Portsmouth, who had started the day level on points with the South Wales side.
It was Cardiff who led at half time through a seventeenth minute goal from Lauren Townsend but after the break, Pompey came out strongly and strikes in quick succession by Gemma Hillier and Lucy Quinn put them ahead. Ten minutes later, Cardiff were level once again thanks to Michelle Green and with fourteen minutes remaining, an own goal gave Cardiff a precious win against one of their title rivals.
Gillingham therefore move back into second place following their 1-0 win against Lewes. Nikita Whinnett scored the only goal of the game to keep her side one point behind leaders Cardiff and firmly amongst the five contenders.
Coventry City made it twelve wins in a row in all competitions and are up into third place after scoring six without reply against Chesham Utd, who are now looking doomed. A four-goal blitz in eleven first half minutes put the Sky Blues firmly in control, Ashleigh Neville giving them the lead with Rebecca Anderson and Maz Gauntlett also on target before Neville netted her second. Anderson then got on the scoresheet once again and the midfielder went on to complete her hat-trick midway through the second half.
Tottenham Hotspur's upsurge in form continued as they cemented themselves in sixth place by running out 3-0 winners over Brighton & Hove Albion. Bianca Baptiste was the heroine for Spurs as she bagged a hat-trick but Brighton's miserable recent run has now stretched to a fifth straight defeat.
West Ham Utd leapt out of the bottom two by beating Keynsham Town 2-1. Both of the Hammers' goals came inside the opening sixteen minutes, Sarah McCrea giving them the lead and then a superb strike from Lily Mellors put them two ahead. Keynsham rallied from that point and pulled a goal back after the break when Suzanne Grant netted from the penalty spot but West Ham held out under late Keynsham pressure for an important victory.
