In a limited league programme due to SSE FA Cup commitments, fourth plays third in Midlands Division 1 as Sheffield United host Burton Albion, with both having only lost once. However, while the Brewers have won eight of nine games, despite the Blades being much higher scorers they have still been held to draws four times.

Seventh-placed Steel City Wanderers welcome a Birmingham & West Midlands side whom they lead by three points.

Leicester City Ladies, under new management, aim to end a run of ten defeats when hosting Solihull Moors.

Morecambe in fourth are the highest-placed Northern Division 1 team in action, as they look to gain ground on the top three at Chester le Street, for whom victory could lift them three positions.

Leeds United will look to beat mid-table Bolton Wanderers to climb out of the drop zone.

Just a single South East Division 1 fixture but a crucial one for Norwich City and Denham United. The Canaries are in the bottom two and eight points short of tenth-placed Denham, with three games in hand.

Southampton Saints will go second in the South West if they take maximum points at home to Larkhall Athletic.

Poole Town play Cheltenham Town whom they are three places in front of but only lead by a couple of points.

Maidenhead United meet St Nicholas and have the opportunity to climb several places against their visitors from Gloucestershire, who have collected just a solitary point thus far.
