With Cardiff City Ladies and Portsmouth having their matches postponed, an opportunity arose for Brighton & Hove Albion and Charlton Athletic to step up their title challenges when they met each other and it was Brighton who took advantage with a 5-1 victory.
A win would have taken the Addicks top of the table but instead it is the Seagulls who are now part of a trio of clubs who are level on points, going second behind Cardiff on goal difference. Kirsty Barton, Jay Blackie, Fliss Gibbons, Lucy Somes and Charley Boswell were all on target for Brighton with Charlton's consolation coming from Sam Pittuck.
Tottenham Hotspur are now just six points away from the top three following a 4-2 win against Gillingham at the Priestfield Stadium. Avilla Bergin netted twice for Spurs along with Shannon Maloney and Wendy Martin, with Ashlee Hincks hitting a brace for the Gills.
Lewes moved into a mid-table position by running out 6-0 winners over Keynsham Town, whose nightmare season is showing no signs of ending. Former England midfielder Rachel Stowell made a return to help out Keynsham's injury-ravaged side but the Rookettes swept to victory with three goals in each half. Kirstie Spice was on target twice along with Charlotte Bennett, Katie Baker, Sian Heather and Ashleigh Goddard.
Plymouth Argyle meanwhile picked up three important points when beating Copsewood (Coventry) 3-1. Copsewood led at the interval through a Nicola Foskett goal on the half hour but in the second half, Mollie Taylor levelled the scores before adding a second to put Argyle in front for the first time and Ezme Wells sealed the win in injury time.
