A limited FA Women’s National League programme includes a clash of first and third as Newcastle United host Nottingham Forest, with the game being streamed live.

County Cup commitments accounted for the restricted league fixture list, which features unbeaten Northern Premier leaders Newcastle facing a Forest side ten points behind them, with a single game in hand. Eighth-placed Derby County have played three games fewer than mid-table Stourbridge, with three points between them.

Ipswich Town will go fourth in the Southern Premier should they be victorious at a winless London Bees, Cheltenham Town play a Plymouth Argyle side who sit five points above the drop zone.

Notts County are only one point from danger in Division 1 Midlands, as they look to improve their position against Sutton Coldfield Town.

Middlesbrough will catch Division 1 North leaders Barnsley WFC if they win at fifth-placed Stockport County, while fourth-placed Durham Cestria are challenged by Chorley.

The only Division 1 South West fixture seems somewhat of a mismatch, Exeter City with eleven straight wins entertaining Selsey who are without a point in their eleven outings.
