Portsmouth would be effectively out of reach at the top of FA Women’s National League Southern Premier Division if they beat Plymouth Argyle on Sunday.

A victory for Pompey would mean Hashtag United could only catch them on goal-difference, on which they trail by a measure of 40.

Fifth plays sixth in the same division, Ipswich hosting MK Dons whom they lead by one point from a game more.

Burnley and Nottingham Forest are in all probability chasing the Northern Premier Division runners-up spot, as the Clarets go to relegation-threatened Huddersfield and Forest travel to Stourbridge.

Fylde will be down in they fail to record a first league win of the campaign away at Stoke, or if Stourbridge avoid defeat.

Lincoln entertain Peterborough at Sincil Bank in Division 1 Midlands, Hull have another chance to take the Division 1 North leadership from Middlesbrough when hosting Chorley.

Cambridge United take on third-placed Norwich City in Division 1 South East, Haywards Heath will be down if they fail to win at Actonians.

Division 1 South West leaders Exeter City go to Keynsham, title-rivals Bournemouth are away to Bridgwater.
