Top of the bill in the FA Women’s National League is Southern Premier leaders Ipswich Town away to third-placed Oxford United.

Ipswich have a six-point lead over Southampton FC who are home to Cardiff, Cup giantkillers Bridgwater sit fourth ahead of a visit to Chichester & Selsey, MK Dons meet Plymouth with the pair just a point apart in the drop zone, while Portsmouth play London Bees with the sides neck and neck in mid-table.

Northern Premier leaders Derby County go to Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest could go third with a win over Burnley, Hull hope to register a first win as the basement side host eleventh-place Sheffield FC.

Lincoln City have a tricky trip to Long Eaton but victory will put them within a point of Division 1 Midlands leaders Doncaster, North top team Liverpool Feds face Barnsley, South East title rivals Billericay and Hashtag are in west London to take on Actonians and QPR respectively, while Cheltenham look to hold the South West top spot when travelling to Chesham and second in the table Bournemouth play Portishead.
