Millwall Lionesses are one point away from the Southern Division title and a return to the top flight following their 2-0 victory over Truro City.
Playing their ninth game in 35 days, Millwall started well and took a seventeenth minute lead when Ann Marie Heatherson volleyed home a Meghan McKean cross. Chances were created but not taken at either end until midway through the second half, when another McKean cross was converted by Leah Jones. A draw against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night would ensure that Millwall will be back in the National Division after an eight-year exile.
Barnet are in second place on goal difference after their game with Cardiff City finished level at 1-1. Claire Thomas was on target for Barnet, with Cardiff replying through a Natasha Harding penalty.
Charlton Athletic's hopes all but ended after they lost a thrilling match 4-3 against a revitalised Portsmouth side. The Addicks raced into a two-goal lead inside the opening ten minutes thanks to Natalie Crinean and Kimberley Dixson but an own goal and a Natalie Bavister strike had Pompey back on level terms just after the half hour, and Gemma Hillier put Portsmouth ahead five minutes before the break. Ciara Sherwood, on as a half time substitute, equalised for Charlton a minute after the restart and the game looked destined to be a draw until deep into injury time, when Hillier scored her second goal to give Pompey the points.
West Ham Utd move into third, thanks to a 4-2 victory over Keynsham Town. Sam Pittuck added two more to her tally with Toni-Anne Wayne and Gemma Shepherd also on target, while Ana Bruni and Ashley Reinecke replied for injury ravaged Keynsham.
At the other end of the table, the vital clash between Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion was another high scoring affair on a day when the four matches produced 23 goals. Both sides picked up an important point from the resulting 4-4 draw (see match report).
