Keynsham Town have returned to the top of the Southern Division after coming from behind to beat Gillingham 2-1.
The Gills took an early lead through Lauren Phillips and deservedly led at the interval but Keynsham were back on level terms just after the hour mark after the Gillingham defence were unable to clear a free kick and, following a scramble, Kayleigh Sage managed to poke the ball into the net. With fifteen minutes remaining, Kerry Bartlett marked her debut for Keynsham by latching onto a flick by Naomi Clipston and scoring with a shot which twice hit the underside of the bar on its way into the net for the winning goal.
Colchester Utd have climbed back into third place on the back of a 4-1 victory over Yeovil Town, who are now perilously placed just above the bottom two. Lily Mellors gave the U's a sixteenth minute lead from Laura Guyon's pass and Kat Parnell swiftly added a second. Helen Bass broke through to sweep home and put Colchester three ahead, before Yeovil gave themselves renewed hope going into half time as Jody Cornwall pulled a goal back. Mellors rounded off a good win for the U's as she completed a brace of goals, eleven minutes from time.
Portsmouth's promotion challenge was dealt a huge blow as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Cardiff City, who recorded their fifth victory in seven league matches to go level on points with fourth placed Pompey. Natasha Harding scored the only goal of the game for Cardiff from the penalty spot, eight minutes into the second half.
The two teams at the foot of the table met each other on Sunday and it was Brighton & Hove Albion who recorded a crucial 2-1 victory against Queen's Park Rangers. Vicky Vickery was the Seagulls' heroine as she netted both goals for her side, with Rangers replying through Seun Odeniyi. Brighton are still in the bottom two but have caught the team immediately above them while Rangers are four points adrift, although they still have a game in hand.
