Exeter City are set to break their crowd record with over 2,000 tickets sold for a FA Women’s National League fixture at St. James Park.

The Division 1 South West leaders host Portishead Town, while title rivals Cardiff City LFC go to Southampton Women.

All the top four in the Northern Premier play away, with Nottingham Forest at Boldmere, Burnley visiting Stoke, Wolves facing Fylde and Derby travelling to Huddersfield.

Oxford United are without a game and could lose the Southern Premier leadership to either Ipswich Town or Portsmouth, who host London Bees and Plymouth Argyle respectively.

Lincoln City entertain Division 1 Midlands top team Stourbridge, second-placed Doncaster Rovers Belles are at Northampton Town.

Durham Cestria look to extend their advantage over Newcastle United in the Division 1 North title race but fourth-placed Stockport County stand in their way. The top two then go head-to-head on Tuesday.

Queens Park Rangers v Hashtag United’s lead over Wimbledon in Division 1 South East is just two points, with the Essex side at QPR and the Dons at Cambridge United.
