Kingstonian will be hoping to collect their second win of the week in Spencer Knight's first home league game against Cray Wanderers. 

Knight won his first match for the K's on Wednesday as they beat local rivals Corinthian Casuals in the Surrey Senior Cup, following up a draw away at high-flying Aveley last weekend. 

Their opposition, Cray, had made a strong start to their season but have struggled in recent weeks, having not won any of their last four in the Isthmian League Premier Division. 

Kick-off at Imperial Fields is at 1pm on Saturday. 

Chelsea Women look to continue their 11-match winning run as they travel to face Leicester City Women in the WSL on Saturday. 

Following an opening day loss against Liverpool Women, Emma Hayes' side have been in unstoppable form, winning every match since in all competitions, including eye catching Champions League wins against Real Madrid Femenino and PSG Feminine. 

Their opponents in Leicester have had a tough start to their second WSL season, as they sit rock bottom of the table and have lost all eight of their matches. 

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

Hampton and Richmond travel to face Farnborough this weekend hoping for revenge for their FA Trophy exit of two weeks ago. 

Hampton are in a rough patch at the moment, with one win in seven matches and a severe injury crisis hampering any signs of a revival. 

Farnborough are in strong form as they have not lost in the league since September and got the best of the Beavers in the FA Trophy two weeks ago with a last minute 1-0 win. 

Kick-off at the Easy as Hgv Stadium is at 12:30pm on Saturday. 

Hanwell Town are still looking for an end to their six-match losing run as they play host to Plymouth Parkway in the Southern League Premier South. 

The Geordies suffered late heartbreak last weekend as they let a two-goal lead slip on the road against Poole Town and lost their sixth straight match across all competitions and are winless in the league in seven outings. 

Plymouth are four spots below Hanwell in the table, but they are on a real hot streak as they have racked up four straight wins in the league, alongside progressing into the third-round of the FA Trophy. 

Kick-off at the Powerday Stadium is at 1:30pm on Saturday. 

Hanworth Villa will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend as they take on local rivals Bedfont Sports in the Isthmian League South Central. 

The Villains six-match unbeaten run came to an emphatic end last weekend as they lost 5-2 at home against Chipstead, but they are still just three points off the play-offs. 

They have a prime opportunity to do so as they make the short trip to play Bedfont Sports, who have won just two games all season, but they have a win and a draw in their last two. 

Kick-off at Bedfont Recreation Ground is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Brentford Women look to bounce back from their first defeat since September last weekend as they face Leatherhead. 

The Bees were given a reality check and knocked off top spot as they lost 5-1 against Dorking Wanderers last Sunday, their first league defeat since a 1-0 defeat against Dulwich Hamlet Reserves. 

Leatherhead have got two of their three wins at home this season, but have lost their last two conceding six times. 

Kick-off at Leatherhead Football Club is at 1pm on Sunday.
