Mid-table Derby host Northern Premier leaders Sunderland, while Burnley – three points behind the Black Cats – have a testing fixture at third placed Stoke. The Clarets remain unbeaten in their FAWNL top flight debut campaign, having only been held by Fylde. The Potters have won five but lost out to Huddersfield and West Brom.

Middlesbrough meet Huddersfield in fourth, Hull go to Nottingham Forest buoyed by bagging their first points last week, while Fylde face Loughborough with both chasing a third win of the campaign.

There’s just a single point between the Southern Premier’s leading trio but Watford and Plymouth Argyle are without a game, so Crawley will retake top spot it they avoid defeat at MK Dons.

Oxford United and Gillingham go head-to-head after both has positive results in midweek, Portsmouth play fourth in the table Yeovil, Cardiff City welcome a winless Hounslow, while Keynsham hope to get off the mark at home to Chichester, who are only one point better off than their hosts.
