Nottingham Forest rounded off the FA Women’s National League midweek matches with a 4-0 victory, before a limited programme this weekend.

Becky Anderson lobbed Forest into an early lead over visitors Loughborough Lightning on Thursday and Rosie Axten doubled the advantage by the break via the post. Sophie Tudor exchanged passes with Naomi Powell before hitting home the third and Sophia Bonser forced a late own-goal to complete the scoring at 4-0. The result left Forest just behind fourth-placed Huddersfield Town on goals scored, while Loughborough sit next to bottom in the Northern Premier table.

Many FAWNL teams are in County FA Cup action on Sunday and you can view a list of fixtures here,  while there’s a massive game at the top of the Southern Premier as Southampton host Ipswich Town. The Saints trail the Tractor Girls by six points but with two games in hand and both sides have won all their matches to date.

Basement sides host leaders in both Division 1 North and South East, with Alnwick taking on Liverpool Feds and Kent Football United facing Billericay Town, while Norwich City are up against second-placed Hashtag United.
