FA Women’s National League fixtures feature Stoke City playing at the Bet365 Stadium and Hull City at Hull Kingston Rovers RFC.

Northern Premier Division leaders Burnley take their unbeaten record to Derby County, Newcastle United look to extend theirs at home to West Brom. Sixth plays fourth when Stoke City welcome Nottingham Forest to the Bet365 Stadium.

Potters’ defender Sophie Thompson told “Nottingham Forest are one of the better teams in the league this season but we will give it everything we have got and hopefully come away with all three points.

“This league has become very competitive in such a short space of time, and to be able to play at amazing stadiums such as the bet365 naturally gives the girls that little bit of extra motivation.”

Hashtag United defend their top spot in the Southern Premier Division at home to Cheltenham Town, second-placed Portsmouth go to a winless London Bees.

Division 1 Midlands leaders Loughborough Lightning host Lincoln City, Peterborough United are four points behind them and on the road at Leafield Athletic.

Doncaster Rovers Belles entertain Division 1 North leaders Barnsley, second-placed Hull City host FC United at Hull Kingston Rovers RFC, York City meet Middlesbrough at the LNER Community Stadium. Hull were 3-2 winners away to FC United just last Sunday in the Adobe Women’s FA Cup and have sold around 700 tickets for the league clash.

There is a top of the table clash in Division 1 South East, unbeaten Norwich City with home advantage over AFC Wimbledon whom they trail by six points but with a game in hand.

Something must give in Division 1 South West, as the leading pair also go head-to-head but with AFC Bournemouth and Exeter City both boasting 100% records.

Three FAWNL sides have outstanding Adobe Women’s FA Cup 2nd Round ties, Southampton Women’s meeting Maidenhead United for the right to host Championship side Watford, Keynsham Town facing a trip to South West League leaders Bristol Rovers as Eastern League Luton Town awaiting a visit from the victors.
