While title-hopefuls Burnley make their Turf Moor debut, victory for Nottingham Forest will see them win the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier.

Forest face Stoke City in their final game, holding a sizeable goal-difference advantage over Wolves who visit Brighouse Town. Burnley entertain Liverpool Feds with over 2,500 tickets now sold and are two points off the pace, not just needing a win but also for other results to go their way.

Oxford United will retake the Southern Premier Division top spot if they beat Gillingham, while third-placed Ipswich Town host Cheltenham Town.

Doncaster Rovers Belles will seal second in Division 1 Midlands if they avoid defeat against Northampton Town at the Eco-Power Stadium.

Newcastle United play their game in hand on Division 1 North leaders Durham Cestria at Bradford City, where victory will put them top on goal-difference.

The last games in Division 1 South East include AFC Wimbledon v Norwich City at Plough Lane and Cambridge United v Actonians at the Abbey Stadium.

Exeter City go into their final match of the Division 1 South West campaign with a three-point lead over second-placed Cardiff City Ladies, but having played a game more.
