Burnley can go within three points of Northern Premier leaders Sunderland be beating Hull City but they only edged the Tigers 2-1 in the Women’s FA Cup last Sunday. Any slip up could see Nottingham Forest go second if they were to win at Fylde.

Oxford United play third-placed Plymouth in the Southern Premier, with Hounslow hosting Gillingham and seeking a first win.

Leeds would cut Barnsley’s lead at the top of Division 1 North in half with three points against Bolton, Ipswich are four points clear in the South East as they prepare to face Basildon, second-placed Wimbledon are at Actonians. South West leaders Southampton FC meet Maidenhead and Southampton Women’s are two points behind as they take on Larkhall.

A couple of high-flying sides have League Cup ties, with Crawley Wasps up against Portsmouth and Sunderland supplying tough opposition at Chorley.
