Cardiff City Ladies have taken over at the top of the Southern Division after beating previous leaders Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1.
Kelly Isaac fired Cardiff in front from a free kick just before the half hour but Brighton were back on level terms two minutes into the second half, Sophie Perry converting a cross from Charley Boswell. Kerry Bartlett restored the South Wales side's lead from the penalty spot and they held on for victory, mainly thanks to a superb Laura O'Sullivan save from a Charlotte Gurr free kick in injury time.
Charlton Athletic sandwiched themselves inbetween Cardiff and Brighton in second place, thanks to a 2-1 victory over Portsmouth. In a closely fought encounter, Charlton took a 25th minute lead through a Gemma Shepherd penalty, with Ini Umotong equalising for Pompey shortly after. Kit Graham netted the winner sixteen minutes from time, before Charlton survived some late pressure as Portsmouth tried in vain to get something from the match.
The two teams immediately below the top four also met each other and the points were shared as Tottenham Hotspur and Coventry Utd battled out a goalless draw.
Lewes are up into mid-table after edging out C & K Basildon by the odd goal in five. Cherelle Khassal, Paige Walder and Natasha Wells were all on target for the Rookettes, with the home side replying through Claire Lacey and Zoe Rushen.
Queen's Park Rangers are out of the bottom two following their second win in successive weeks, 4-2 against Forest Green Rovers. Jo Wilson gave Rangers a first half lead which was cancelled out by an own goal, before Juana Garcia put Forest Green in front early in the second half. Elly Maggs turned the match on its head by scoring twice in a four minute spell and Cherrelle Albert clinched the win for Rangers with two minutes remaining.
