Newcastle are at least 5 points from safety with as many games to go, as the Northern Division’s basement team visits Derby, who are 6 points better off than them.

Crystal Palace lead the mid-table group in the Southern and play Portsmouth who are 8 points beneath them. QPR will get off the foot of the table with a victory against C&K Basildon.

Loughborough Foxes can double their lead in the Midlands Division 1 by beating net to bottom Leicester City Ladies. Birmingham & West Midlands will go second with a win over Radcliffe but the visitors could also go that high with a big victory. Steel City meet Long Eaton and lowly Loughborough Students seek their first win when hosting Solihull.

Hull defend their newly-won top spot in Northern Division 1 against Crewe, with Guiseley 3 points behind them and home to Blackpool Wren Rovers. Liverpool Feds entertain Brighouse, sixth plays fifth as Morecambe meet Leeds, while Mossley challenge Chester le Street.

Gillingham have an opporunity to pile pressure on South east table-toppers MK Dons, as the Gills entertain Enfield. Cambridge can also add to the tension with a win at Lowestoft, boosted by boss Steve Edwards getting the January Manager of the Month Award for Division 1. Wimbledon need maximum points at Stevenage in their onw promotion push, while last-placed Norwich welcome Denham.

Plymouth are 10 points short of South West leaders Chichester with 3 games in hand, the first of those being a tough one at fourth-placed Southampton Saints. Keynsham sit between the pair and are home to Cheltenham, Larkhall are level on points with their Somerset rivals and away at a winless Shanklin. Basingstoke tackle St Nicholas who are 4 points better off but from a couple games more and last but not least, Maidenhead go head to head with Exeter, with City yet to muster a victory.
