Sunderland will be runners-up in the Northern Premier if they beat Sheffield FC but any slip up could let in Derby – who travel to Doncaster – or Huddersfield who host a Bradford side that faces going a whole season without a point.

The Southern Premier campaign ends with second against first, as Cardiff City Ladies entertain champions Coventry United.

The top two also clash in Division 1 Midlands, where Wolves stand between West Brom and a perfect record of twenty wins in a row.

Chester le Street will take second spot in Division 1 North if they defeat Norton but Brighouse still have a hope if they can take the points at Leeds.

Actonians lead the race for third place in Division 1 South East as they host AFC Wimbledon, Orient are a point behind but face champions Crawley, likewise Enfield who take on Denham.

Third spot is still to be settled in Division 1 South West, where Cheltenham are two points ahead of Buckland, with the Devon side also waiting on judgement of a postponed match against Southampton Saints.
