Millwall Lionesses v Durham (Fisher FC, 12pm)
Sheffield FC v Tottenham Hotspur (Sheffield FC, 1pm)
Doncaster Rovers Belles v Brighton & Hove Albion (Doncaster Rovers FC)
Oxford United v Aston Villa (Oxford City FC)

Chelsea will go top of the league – if only for a couple of hours – if they win at home to Everton, with Manchester City kicking off later at Sunderland, where they look to extend their 100% record.

Third-placed Liverpool, who added Rinsola Babajide to their ranks this week, host Bristol City on Saturday evening, while other WSL 1 Sunday matches see Reading again entertain Arsenal – the Gunners having recently edged the Royals 3-2 in the Conti Cup semi-finals – and Birmingham City home to Yeovil Town, who are still trying to find their first goal.

As in the top flight, an early kick-off could provide at least a temporary change to first place. Millwall are only a point short of leaders Doncaster as they prepare to play third-placed Durham, with the Belles having a tricky home game with fourth in the table Brighton.

Spurs are one point above Sheffield FC whom they visit for a 1pm start, Oxford go up against Aston Villa who made three signings on transfer deadline day, while London Bees welcome a winless Watford on Saturday afternoon.
