It’s top versus bottom in the Northern as unbeaten Blackburn host Newcastle but there was only one goal in it when Rovers won in October. 

Middlesbrough are in second spot and looking to recover from last week’s 5-1 loss to the top team when they take on third-placed Bradford. 

Huddersfield home to Fylde is a mid-table meeting in which the visitors have a two-point advantage.

Cardiff lost for the first time on Sunday but victory over Swindon would see them reclaim the Southern Division leadership.

Lowly QPR entertain Lewes but just a point would be enough to get Rangers off the foot of the table.

A win for Sporting Khalsa at home to Solihull will send them second in the Midlands, while their visitors hang just goal-difference above Leicester Ladies in the drop zone, who host fourth-placed Birmingham & West Midlands.

The big match in Northern Division 1 has third in the table Hull hosting leaders Chorley. Guiseley take their undefeated record to Morecambe, while Blackpool Wren Rovers face Liverpool Feds and Brighouse’s fixture with Mossley is played at the changed venue of Leeds Road.

The sole South East Division 1 game sees basement side Norwich up against a Gillingham team who netted ten goals last time out and who will rise two places to second with a win.

Winless Exeter have a test on their hands at home to South West leaders Chichester and it’s second versus fourth as Plymouth play Keynsham. Brislington are just above Larkhall ahed of their clash, while Shanklin welcome Basingstoke to the Isle of Wight.
