Substitute Ini Umotong was the heroine as Portsmouth increased their lead at the top to three points with a 4-1 victory away to Gillingham.
Lauren Phillips gave the Gills a first half lead when she scored with a long range strike but after the break, Umotong turned things around by netting a hat-trick. Umotong turned provider for the final goal, scored by Gemma Hillier, to leave Pompey requiring four points from their final two games to clinch the title.
Brighton & Hove Albion's challenge received a setback as they were held to a 2-2 draw by West Ham Utd, who continue to be a thorn in the side of the top four. Vicky Kinsman and Emma Sherwood both scored for the Hammers while Kirsty Barton and Amy Taylor were on target for Brighton, who are likely to need maximum points from their last two matches.
Charlton Athletic can still win the title but will have to rely on help from other teams, despite a 7-0 win against Copsewood (Coventry). Gemma Shepherd led the scoring for the Addicks with a hat-trick, while the prolific Kit Graham weighed in with a brace. Amy Howlett and Kim Dixson added the other goals to virtually seal a top three place for Charlton.
Cardiff City Ladies returned to winning ways with a 3-0 success at Queen's Park Rangers. Kerry Bartlett, Naomi Clipston and Hope Suominen were on the scoresheet for the South Wales side to cement themselves in fourth place.
