Keynsham Town overcame a nightmare start to their match against Southern Division leaders Gillingham to come back for a 4-2 win which opens up the title race.
The Gills took the lead in the opening minute when Lauren Phillips forced home the rebound after an Amy Taylor header from a corner had been saved, then five minutes later Phillips turned provider with a pinpoint cross for Emma Tune to score at the far post. However within seven minutes the scores were level again, Pilar Garcia reducing the arrears when scoring at the second attempt and then Olivera Markovic drilled home a stunning 25-yard shot for the equaliser. The game remained fiercely competitive but well contested with chances for both sides until just after the hour mark when Aimee Clark put Keynsham ahead for the first time by powering home a rocket shot from a 20-yard free kick. Gillingham almost got back on terms when Lisa Fulgence broke through before being denied by an excellent smothering save from Gwyn West and moments later, a free kick at the other end was not dealt with and Markovic nipped in to head in her second and decisive goal for Keynsham.
This result completed an excellent weekend for Cardiff City Ladies who are now just two points off the pace following victories on successive days. On Saturday they travelled to Tottenham Hotspur and won 2-0 with goals from Bethan Lloyd and Kayleigh Green, then just 24 hours later the South Wales side defeated Brighton & Hove Albion to further pep up their title challenge. Gwennan Harries, Naomi Clipston and Kelly Aldridge were all on target for Cardiff.
Coventry City remain well in the running but lost a little ground as they drew 1-1 with Lewes. However it could have been worse for the Sky Blues as they trailed for most of the match to a first half strike from Clare Trafford but for the second week running, Kim Walton scored a vital injury time goal for her side, this time to earn them a share of the spoils. Coventry are now four points behind Gillingham but have a game in hand.
