WFC Fulham edged closer to the Southern Division title despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Keynsham Town.
It was Keynsham who took a first half lead through Brazilian striker Sheila Rocha, but the Whites hit back to earn themselves a share of the spoils with leading scorer Ann Marie Heatherson equalising shortly before half time. The result means that Fulham require seven points from their final four games to ensure they return to the top flight at the first attempt.
Barnet now appear to be the main challengers after they left Portsmouth's hopes in tatters by coming from behind to beat them 2-1. Brooke Chaplen gave Pompey the lead five minutes before half time but Gemma Rudman equalised midway through the second half for the Bees and Katie O'Leary grabbed the winner in the dying minutes.
Millwall Lionesses kept up their good form with a 2-1 victory away to Colchester Utd. Carly Eagles and Victoria Boardman netted in the first and second half respectively to give Millwall the points, despite the U's scoring a late goal through Kate Longhurst.
Crystal Palace complete an all-London top four, thanks to a 2-1 win against West Ham Utd. Kenne Ogunneye put Palace in front in the fifth minute, with Katy Ling replying for the Hammers ten minutes before half time. Early in the second half, Jade McDermott scored what proved to be the winning goal.
AFC Team Bath gave themselves a lifeline by winning 1-0 away to Brighton & Hove Albion, to climb above the Seagulls and out of the bottom two. Toni Hemmings scored for the fifth game in a row, her second half strike taking Team Bath out of the relegation zone on goal difference.
