Fylde and Southampton FC have an opportunity to gain ground on the FA Women’s National League North and South leaders respectively.

Third plays fifth in the Northern Premier and Fylde will go second if they avoid defeat at home to Huddersfield Town but are currently seven points short of leaders Wolves.

Southampton are a similar distance from Southern Premier leaders Ipswich Town but have three games in hand, playing one of those away at mid-table Crawley Wasps. Bridgwater play Cardiff with United having a chance to go fourth against City, who are just a point above the relegation zone.

Wimbledon welcome Actonians in a clash of Division 1 South East’s third and fourth-placed sides, the bottom two play as Kent Football United take on London Seaward and Stevenage go to Cambridge United, while Enfield who are just goal-difference above the drop zone face QPR.

Exeter City will jump two places to third in Division 1 South West should they win at Larkhall, while Division 1 North draw specialists Chorley entertain Bradford City.
