Portsmouth will go top of the FA Women’s National League Southern Premier Division if they beat MK Dons on Sunday 5 November, having edged them in the Cup last week.

Northern Premier Division top two Burnley and Newcastle United are home to West Brom and Stourbridge respectively, while fifth plays third as Nottingham Forest welcome Wolves. Halifax’s game has been reversed and they now travel to Derby County.

Portsmouth will go top of the Southern Premier Division if they beat Milton Keynes Dons, who stand to go third themselves if they should take the points. The teams met in the League Cup just last Sunday, with visitors Pompey getting the only goal. Keith Boanas takes charge of a Chatham Town competitive fixture for the first time at Cheltenham Town, following Sunday’s 6-1 friendly win over Portsmouth U-23s.

Division 1 Midlands leaders Loughborough Lightning visit Solihull Moors, Peterborough United are a point off the top and home to Boldmere St Michaels.

Barnsley WFC are top of Division 1 North and hosting third-placed Leeds United, second-in-the-table Hull City have home advantage over Chorley.

Actonians are up against Division 1 South East top team AFC Wimbledon, Worthing have an opportunity to second when playing basement side Cambridge City.

With eight straight wins in Division 1 South West, leaders AFC Bournemouth play Portishead Town at the Vitality Stadium, Exeter City have seven wins in a row and take on Keynsham Town.
