Kingstonian can confirm survival with a game to spare if they avoid defeat against Cray Wanderers in the Isthmian League Premier Division.
The K's sit six points above Bowers and Pitsea with two games to play and if Bowers fail to win or Kingstonian take a point from their final two fixtures then they will remain in this division for another season.
Cray will not make it easy for them as they presently occupy the final play-off place and are just one point above Enfield Town and so will need all three points to keep their provisional place in the post season.
Kick-off at Hayes Lane is at 3pm on Saturday.
It is semi-final weekend in the Women's FA Cup and Chelsea Women face Aston Villa hoping to make their seventh final.
Chelsea have won the last two instalments of this competition and will be full of confidence in their hunt for a third in a row as they beat Villa 3-0 in their last game before the international break.
Villa would be breaking new ground if they get the better of Chelsea on home turf as they have never made the final of the Women's FA Cup.
Kick-off at the Poundland Bescott Stadium is at 2.15pm on Sunday.
Hampton and Richmond can confirm their survival this weekend as they face relegation threatened Weymouth in National League South.
The Beavers could confirm their place in next year's National League South this weekend if they take all three points and Cheshunt are beaten at Ebbsfleet United as they would move 13 points clear of the relegation zone with 12 points left available.
The Terras got a much-needed win at home to Bath City last weekend to move four points from safety, but time is running out for them to catch Dulwich Hamlet in the last survival spot.
Kick-off at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday.
Hanwell Town would like to celebrate their survival in the seventh tier with a first win in five as they face Winchester City.
Results elsewhere on Monday meant that the Geordies stay in the Southern League Premier South was confirmed for a second season and they followed that up with a 1-1 draw against strugglers Hendon on Thursday.
Winchester are also officially safe after the Easter weekend results, having amassed one more point than Hanwell and will be hoping for a third straight win as they look to end the season in style.
Kick-off at the Denplan City Ground is at 3pm on Saturday.
Hanworth Villa face local rivals Bedfont Sports hoping to book their place in the Isthmian League South Central play-offs.
The Villains still have a game in hand over Chertsey Town and if their closest rivals slip up this weekend and Hanworth take maximum points then they will have confirmed their spot in the play-offs.
Bedfont have the opposite problem of only being above the automatic relegation places on goal difference and taking home three points would be a big result in their push to remain at this level.
Kick-off at Rectory Meadow is at 3pm on Saturday.
Brentford Women's four-way title fight goes on this weekend as they welcome Sport London E Benfica to Bedfont Sports Club.
The Bees sit second in a complicated L&SEWFL Division One North table, which sees all of the top four having played a different number of games, but Brentford could go top with a win.
Benfica have conceded 11 goals in their last two matches, which have seen heavy defeats against Denham United and Watford Development, leaving them 7th in the table.
Kick-off at Bedfont Sports Club is at 3pm on Sunday.
