FA Women’s National League Southern Premier leaders Portsmouth won after extra-time in the Cup at Ipswich Town last weekend and return there this Sunday.

Pompey only lead the table on goal-difference but play one of their two games in hand on Hashtag United, when visiting fifth-placed Ipswich. Oxford United will go third if they win at basement side London Bees.

The Northern Premier also has a meeting of first and fifth, with Newcastle United welcoming Wolves. Second-placed Nottingham Forest are away to bottom-of-the-table Fylde.

Division 1 Midlands leaders Loughborough Lightning host Lincoln City, Boldmere are two points behind them and home to Sheffield FC.

Durham Cestria are visited by Division 1 North leaders Barnsley WFC whom they trail by six points, the Tykes’ main title rivals are also on the road, with Middlesbrough at York City and Hull City away to Norton.

Top of Division 1 South East, AFC Wimbledon play Plate semi-finalists Cambridge United at Plough Lane, while London Seaward face Norwich City who sit three points short of the Dons with a game in hand.

There is the long-awaited clash of AFC Bournemouth and Exeter City in Division 1 South West, the Cherries on ten straight wins and the Grecians with a dozen.
