Blackburn continue their defence of the trophy (won last season as the FAWPL Cup) when entertaining mid-table Southern Premier side Loughborough Foxes. The winners will face a Division 1 team in the final, as newcomers Crawley line-up against Bolton.

The Plate semi-finals have top flight sides hosting lower opponents but both Gillingham and MK Dons are in the bottom four, while West Brom are on course to win the Midlands title and Liverpool Feds are mid-table in Northern Division 1.

Either Fylde or Huddersfield could go second in the Northern Premier, with the former at Sheffield FC and the Terriers heading for Hull. Stoke entertain Guiseley and are currently three points behind second-placed Sunderland, while Nottingham Forest meet Middlesbrough in the other match.

It’s top versus bottom in the Southern Premier as Chichester go head-to-head with QPR,  while title favourites Coventry play Portsmouth and C & K Basildon have a noon kick-off with Plymouth.

Wolves trail Midlands Division 1 leaders West Brom by nine points but should beat winless visitors Steel City. Burton will go level with Long Eaton if they manage victory over them, Nettleham have a midv Sporting Khalsa

Chester le Street are second in Northern Division 1 and three points better off the visitors Brighouse, and there’s a similar gap between Chorley and Newcastle, with the away side two places higher.

Billericay really need a win at Wimbledon to help their title hopes, Orient will go third should they take the points at Ipswich. Those in the drop zone host the two sides the other side of the dotted line, with Denham home to Cambridge and Luton hosting a local clash with Stevenage,

Keynsham have South West Division 1 table-toppers Southampton WFC in their sights and welcome Cheltenham for one of their games in hand. It’s sixth versus fifth with Brislington against Buckland, while Larkhall meet Maidenhead.
