Charlton Athletic needed to stage a second half fightback in order to snatch a 1-1 draw with Cardiff City and maintain their six point lead at the top of the Southern Division.
Cardiff goalkeeper Rhian Nokes made a brilliant double save during the first half and she saw her side go in front before the break when Laurie Harries scored with a 15-yard volley. Charlton levelled the scores through Natalie Crinean just before the hour mark and both sides went close to taking all three points before the end of the game.
Charlton's two nearest rivals met each other and neither were able to gain ground on the Addicks as Barnet and second place Keynsham Town shared a 2-2 draw. Stacey Sowden - against her old club - and Holly Sandow were on target for Barnet, with Keynsham replying through Frankie Stone and Luciana Silva.
Portsmouth received a huge setback to their challenge as they went down to a 2-1 defeat at home to Colchester Utd. Helen Bass scored two early goals which would proved decisive, despite Pompey pulling one back on the hour when Lynsey Crewe headed in a Molly Clark free kick.
For the first time since December, Millwall Lionesses played a league match! However it was not the winning form they were hoping for as they were held to a goalless draw by local rivals West Ham Utd which means, although they have dropped less points than any other side in the division, they still have 14 games to cram in for their promotion challenge.
The match between Crystal Palace and Ipswich Town similarly finished goalless, but the point was enough to take Palace out of the bottom two and extend the gap between Ipswich and the relegation zone to four points.
Brighton & Hove Albion are off the bottom at the expense of Truro City, after they defeated the Cornish side 2-1. Katie Barker had given Truro a first half lead before the Seagulls battled back to claim a vital victory thanks to Kelly McCullock and Kim Whitcombe. The result means that the bottom three teams are all level on points.
