Oxford United won at MK Dons in midweek to go five points clear in the FA Women’s National League Southern Premier Division.

Carly Johns converted from the spot in front of a 618-strong crowd at Stadium MK, before Rose Kite tipped the ball round the post in the 87th minute to protect the 1-0 lead and the hosts’ Nicole Pepper missed her penalty in added time.

Second-placed Watford have two games in hand ahead of Sunday’s reduced league programme, hosting Billericay Town who had a 7-0 Isthmian Cup win over London Seaward in midweek.

Plymouth Argyle play Ipswich Town at Home Park, while MK Dons are home again to London Bees but at a changed venue.

The only Northern Premier fixture sees Liverpool Feds host Loughborough Lightning, who sit at the foot of the table with just a single point.

Durham Cestria will replace Newcastle United as Division 1 North leaders if they win their game in hand at home to York City.

Division 1 South West leaders Cardiff City Ladies go in search of an eighth-straight win when visiting Maidenhead United.

Many FAWNL teams are in County Cup action, including AFC Wimbledon away to Fulham at Craven Cottage. A list of ties is available here.
