Reading FC Women needed to come from behind to beat Keynsham Town 4-3 and keep themselves in second place, level on points with Barnet. Melissa Fletcher gave Reading a fifth minute lead which was quickly cancelled out by Katarzyna Rusek and Leanne Lapham then put Keynsham in front. Natasha Caswell equalised for Reading just before half time but Keynsham were back in front again soon after the restart, Rusek scoring her second goal. Francesca Kirby levelled matters once again before Danielle Puddefoot grabbed the winner for Reading with twenty minutes remaining.

After four successive draws, West Ham Utd recorded their first victory of the season in some style, beating Crystal Palace 5-1.
