Top of the bill in the FA Women’s National League this Sunday is Watford home to Southern Premier Division leaders Oxford United.

Burnley are one point behind Wolves and four short of Northern Premier leaders Nottingham Forest with one and two games in hand respectively, ahead of hosting fourth-placed Derby County.

Oxford United lead Ipswich Town by single point with a game in hand at the top of the Southern Premier, with United facing a testing trip to fellow title contenders Watford, while the Tractor Girls go to basement side Crawley Wasps.

Doncaster play their game in hand on Division 1 Midlands leaders Stourbridge who hold a seven-point advantage, Belles’ visitors Wem Town are in the drop zone on goal-difference.

Newcastle United entertain Norton in Division 1 North and could cut Durham Cestria’s lead to one point, while still having another match to make up.

Hashtag United can extend their lead over AFC Wimbledon at the Division 1 South East summit, when hosting Cambridge City.

Moneyfields will move third in Division 1 South West should they be victorious at mid-table Swindon Town.
