It’s third versus first in the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier, as Wolves welcome leaders Nottingham Forest.

There’s only goal-difference between them, other than second-placed Fylde, who face Hull City.

Forest’s Andy Cook is the season’s first North/South Premier Manager of the Month, while Bournemouth’s Steve Cuss claimed the Division 1 award at the first attempt.

Southampton FC and Ipswich Town are five points clear of the rest in the Southern Premier and look to make it five straight wins when travelling to Chichester & Selsey and Hounslow respectively.

Boldmere St Michaels take the last unbeaten record in Division 1 Midlands to newcomers Leek Town.

The top four in Division 1 North play among each other following Leeds United’s rise with a 5-0 midweek win over Barnsley in which Laura Bartup scored four times.

Division 1 South East leaders Billericay Town are home to Stevenage, Hashtag United – level on points with the top team – entertain Enfield Town.

With AFC Bournemouth not having a match this weekend, Chesham United lead the pack hoping to go top of Division 1 South West.
