The Southern Division title race is now shaping up to be a South Coast battle and it is Portsmouth who continue to lead the way.
A penalty midway through the first half from Sarah Kempson gave Pompey a 1-0 win away to Cardiff City Ladies, whose title challenge seems to be over whilst Portsmouth still have matters in their hands.
Brighton & Hove Albion are keeping up the pressure in second place, just one point behind, after they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-2. However the Seagulls needed to come from behind late on to take the points from a thrilling game despite taking a first half lead through Amy Taylor. Wendy Martin quickly levelled the scores and then Avilla Bergin put Spurs ahead on the hour mark. With eight minutes remaining, Emily Baker marked her debut by equalising for Brighton and then Kirsty Barton went on to score the winner and give her side a crucial victory.
Charlton Athletic still have a chance to make a challenge but are likely to need maximum points from their remaining games. They kept their hopes alive by winning 5-3 at Plymouth Argyle, Kit Graham once more scoring twice as did Gemma Shepherd, with Kim Dixson also on the scoresheet. Jodie Chubb, Mollie Taylor and Kayley Lane all replied for Argyle.
West Ham Utd's recent good run of form was halted by a 2-1 defeat at home to Lewes. Clare Trafford and Cherelle Khassal ensured that the Rookettes ended their campaign on a winning note, Emma Sherwood netting the Hammers' consolation.
Queen's Park Rangers are now safe from any relegation fears after they fought out a goalless draw with Gillingham, for whom the point was a precious one in their own battle to stay up.
Copsewood (Coventry) made it back-to-back victories to further boost their survival battle but Keynsham Town are doomed to relegation after going down 3-0 in their basement clash. An own goal opened the scoring for Copsewood midway through the first half and then two excellent strikes from Kayleigh Steele wrapped up a vital win for Ryan Conneely's side, who need five points from their final three games to be sure of staying up.
