Kingstonian will have to overcome a run of one win in 12 if they are to get the better of Lewes in the Isthmian League Premier Division. 

The K's have conceded 14 goals in their last four matches as their barren run has continued, seeing them just one point above the relegation zone. 

Lewes are bang in form and attempting to gate crash the play-offs, winning four of their last six and scoring five goals last time out against Wingate and Finchley. 

Kick-off at the Dripping Pan is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Chelsea Women resume their title fight in the Women's Super League as they visit an out-of-form Tottenham Hotspur Women side. 

The Blues have won two cup matches since they were last able to complete a WSL match, a draw against Arsenal Women at the Emirates Stadium, and that slip up allowed Manchester United Women to ascend to the table's summit. 

Spurs will be hoping their 5-0 win against second division London City Lionesses in the FA Cup last week will help stop their negative momentum, having lost five straight in the WSL. 

Kick-off at Brisbane Road is at 12:30pm on Sunday. 

Hampton and Richmond will be hoping to record their first win of 2023 as they travel up to take on St Albans in National League South. 

The Beavers are now level on points with the relegation zone after a mid-week defeat against a struggling Weymouth side. 

St Albans are involved in a fight at the other end of the division as they are just inside the play-off places and will need to take the points to keep pace. 

Kick-off at Clarence Park is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Hanwell Town can make it back-to-back wins for the first time since October if they get the best of Bracknell Town in the Southern League Premier South. 

The Geordies held on under intense pressure on Wednesday to win at Tiverton and are once again looking up towards the play-off places. 

Bracknell are one of the teams they will have to catch if they are to make them, as they are one point outside a place in the post season, and five points better off than Hanwell. 

Kick-off at the Powerday Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Hanworth Villa can carry their unbeaten 2023 into a second month if they get the better of Sutton Common Rovers in the Isthmian League South Central. 

The Villains have had multiple cancellations due to the weather this month, but they were finally back in action last weekend and saw off South Park with a 2-1 win. 

They will be the favourites to carry on that run as they travel to face a Sutton Common Rovers side who have lost 12 consecutive matches, a run which started when the Villains beat them 3-1 in November. 

Kick-off at Church Road is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Brentford Women restart their league season with a chance to go back to the top of the L&SEWFL Division One North. 

The Bees pick up their league sitting second in the table, having last played a league match in 2022, when they beat Leatherhead Women 4-0. 

They take on Watford Ladies Development, who are ninth in the table and lost to Brentford 4-2 in the reverse fixture. 

Kick-off at Bovingdon Football Club is at 2pm on Sunday.
