Kingstonian will need to re-find their form as they look to protect against the threat of relegation against Haringey Borough.
The K's had gone on a run of three wins and a draw to have seemingly moved towards safety in the Isthmian League Premier Division, but three straight defeats leave them two points above the drop.
Haringey will be playing for nothing in 15th place and 12 points clear of the relegation zone, and Kingstonian will hope to capitalise on that to drag themselves away from Herne Bay,
Kick-off at Imperial Fields is at 3pm on Saturday.
Chelsea Women face the prospect of a top of the table clash this weekend as they take on Manchester City Women in the WSL.
The Blues have failed to win just twice in the league this season, but it is tight at the top and a defeat this weekend could see them fall down as far as third.
Man City lost their opening two games of the season against Aston Villa Women and Chelsea, but have not been defeated since and that sees them two points off top spot, albeit having played a game more than Chelsea.
Kick-off at the Manchester City Academy Stadium is at 12.40pm on Sunday.
Hampton and Richmond could take a step closer to survival when they face Farnborough at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium this weekend.
The Beavers are flying with four wins in a row to guide them from the brink of relegation to seven points clear of Cheshunt as Mel Gwinnett has stabilised the ship.
Farnborough could do with a win this weekend to keep themselves in the play-off hunt, they are at the back of a queue of five teams with a realistic shout of getting into the post season, but are still three points off Worthing in 7th.
Kick-off at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday.
Hanwell Town are playing at home to celebrate Non-League Day with Swindon Supermarine the visitors in the Southern League Premier South.
The Geordies have made their status in the seventh tier all but safe for the season with six games to spare and will hope for a bumper crowd to celebrate Non-League Day with no Premier League or Championship football this weekend.
Swindon Supermarine are still just about alive in the play-off race, but despite having lost just twice in their last fifteen matches, they still have six points to make up to get into the top five.
Kick-off at the Powerday Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday.
Hanworth Villa take on league leaders Basingstoke Town away from home in the Isthmian League South Central this weekend.
The Villains currently occupy the last play-off space, but only two points separates them and the next three teams and they will be up against it to maintain their spot in the post season.
Basingstoke look clear at the top of the table and have won their last 15 games to surge away from their closest challengers in Walton and Hersham.
Kick-off at Winklebury Sports Complex is at 3pm on Saturday.
