AFC Bournemouth could go top of FA Women’s National League Division 1 South West in midweek, while Burnley, Keynsham and Norton all play County Cup Finals.

Wolves welcome League Plate winners Derby County as they chase third-placed Nottingham Forest, who themselves are at Halifax where defeat for them would hand Burnley the runners-up spot. The Clarets are otherwise engaged in their County Cup Final, as are two other FA WNL sides in Keynsham Town and Norton.

AFC Bournemouth will go top of Division 1 South West if they win at third-placed Moneyfields in their penultimate game. They finish up on 5 May with a title decider away to Exeter City. Portishead are safe and hosting mid-table Bridgwater.

QPR, fourth in Division 1 South East, entertain eighth-placed London Seaward.
