FA Women’s National League matches this midweek include travel for Division 1 South East leaders AFC Wimbledon and second-placed South West side AFC Bournemouth.

The Dons are ten points clear of title-rivals Norwich City from two games more ahead of their visit to fifth-placed Ashford Town, whom they will also travel to in the Capital Cup semi-finals on 7 April.

The Cherries are eight points behind Exeter City from two games fewer in their title chase, after being held at home by Keynsham Town in front of over 6,000 on Sunday. Bournemouth head to Southampton Women, with the Sirens three points above the relegation zone.

Portishead are similarly placed in the struggle to stay up and hosting mid-table Bridgwater United.

Sixth plays fourth in Division 1 South East, Actonians home to local rivals QPR whom they trail by five points but with a game in hand.

The one fifth-tier fixture sees Huddersfield Town continue their battle to get out of the drop zone, currently sitting eight points from Stourbridge and safety. Halifax are their visitors and a further point better off, with the added benefit of games in hand on everyone else.
