A late goal saw Millwall Lionesses towards another victory and extended their lead at the top of the Southern Division to three points.
A depleted Keynsham Town side put up a brave fight against the in-form Lionesses before Ann Marie Heatherson netted with five minutes remaining to give Millwall a 1-0 victory.
Charlton Athletic meanwhile lost ground in second place as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Ipswich Town, who picked up a precious point in their fight for survival. After Danielle Bitten had put the Tractor Girls ahead, Ellie Stenning equalised but Ipswich were soon back in front again through Jade Skillen. Natalie Crinean levelled the scores again on the stroke of half time and no further goals after the break mean that Charlton stay in second, three points off the pace, whilst Ipswich have completed their fixtures and must wait and see if any of the bottom three clubs overhaul them.
Barnet were another side to clinch the points late on, coming from behind to beat Cardiff City 2-1. The home side led for much of the game through Laurie Harries' first half strike but goals in the last ten minutes from Stacey Sowden and Claire Thomas kept Barnet's promotion hopes alive.
West Ham Utd drew for the ninth time in 19 league games and stay in fourth place as they finished goalless with Brighton & Hove Albion, for whom the point keeps them out of the bottom two.
Portsmouth appear to be back on track after their recent bad spell and their 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace takes them towards the top half of the table. After a goalless first half, Gemma Hillier put Pompey in front three minutes after the restart and Gemma Ritchie sewed up the points midway through the second half.
To complete a day of late goals in the division, Colchester Utd staged a dramatic comeback to snatch a 2-2 draw at Truro City and strike a huge blow in the home side's battle against the drop. Truro looked to be on their way towards a vital victory as Leanne Lapham netted a goal in each half but injury time strikes from Hannah Porter and Kate Longhurst earned the U's a point and kept the Cornish side at the foot of the table.
