Huddersfield have the chance to cut Middlesbrough’s lead in the Northern Division two four points when hosting Derby and third-placed Leicester can also gain ground by picking up points at West Brom. Mid-table Fylde face Stoke in fourth, Guiseley go for their first win against Nottingham Forest, while Wolves welcome a Bradford side just two points better off than themselves.

It’s top versus bottom in the Southern as Charlton entertain Swindon, so second-placed Lewes will surely have to win at Portsmouth to keep up the pace, likewise C & K Basildon at West Ham. Crystal Palace clash with Cardiff, Gillingham’s visitors Chichester account for nearly half the draws in the division and QPR chase a second victory but must deal with Coventry.

TNS will replace Loughborough Foxes as Midlands Division 1 leaders should they win at Long Eaton and third-placed Burton are at Radcliffe Olympic who are just two points behind them. Also on 19 points are Solihull Moors who visit Steel City. Birmingham & West Midlands are three points ahead of their visitors Sporting Khalsa, while Leicester City Ladies look to get off the mark in a basement battle with Rotherham.

Brighouse boast a five-point lead in Northern Division 1 ahead of hosting fourth-placed Morecambe, while second in the table Hull are home to Chester le Street. Liverpool Feds are level on points with the Tigresses and have home advantage over Newcastle United, while Crewe have a mid-table meeting with Barnsley whom they trail by two points but with four games in hand.

Only a couple of points separates the top three in the South East as leaders AFC Wimbledon entertain Denham, MK Dons meet fourth-placed Ipswich and Orient visit Stevenage. Actonians start three points short of visitors Cambridge United, there’s a north London derby between Haringey and Enfield, while Luton welcome Norwich.

A massive game in the South West sees newcomers Southampton WFC defending their 100% record at home to table-topping Keynsham. Southampton Saints are in fourth and away to a winless St Nicholas, Brislington meet Maidenhead whom they lead by two points and Cheltenham challenge Larkhall who are four points better off than them.
