The top two in Group 1 North – Liverpool and Sunderland – have both won one game in normal time and an extra point in the other from a penalty shoot-out, with the Reds next hosting Aston Villa and the Black Cats away at Sheffield FC.

Group 2 North has Manchester City leading both Birmingham City and Everton on goal-difference, as well as having a game in hand but the Toffees will go top if they avoid defeat at home to Oxford United, who have still to get off the mark.

Arsenal lead Group 1 South ahead of their visit to Watford, while Reading – well-placed in second with a game in hand – take on London Bees at the Madejski Stadium.

Yeovil Town and Bristol City have still to register a point in Group 2 South but something must change when they go head to head at Taunton Town FC.
