Hanwell Town look to get themselves back into the thick of the play-off race in the Southern League Premier South against Truro City. 

The Geordies finally ended a winless league run that stretched back to 15th October as they managed to hold onto a 1-0 win away against Plymouth Parkway last weekend. 

They are back on the south coast this week as they play against title challengers in Truro, who have lost once all season and beat Hanwell 3-1 on opening day. 

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

Brentford Women face a local derby this weekend against Richmond Park in L&SEWFL Division One North. 

The Bees bounced back from defeat in style last week as Demi Edwards scored one of the best hat-tricks you will see in a 4-0 win away against Leatherhead. 

They are on the road again this weekend, but it is only the short trip across the Thames to play seventh placed Richmond, who have won both of their home games so far this season. 

Kick-off at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium is at 2pm on Sunday.

Hampton and Richmond will hope to build on last weekend's come from behind draw this weekend against Cheshunt. 

Hampton managed to secure a draw away from home against Farnborough last weekend, but still have won just once in eight matches across all competitions. 

Their opponents this weekend are 22nd placed Cheshunt, but they have shown signs of life of late, having taken four points from their last two and they beat the Beavers on the opening day of the season. 

Kick-off at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Kingstonian will be hoping to correct their woeful away form this season as they face Hornchurch in the Isthmian League Premier Division. 

Spencer Knight is still looking for his first win as manager, along with the K's ongoing search for a first league away win of the season. 

Neither of those seem likely to change this weekend as they travel to East London to face table topping Hornchurch who have lost once since August. 

Kick-off at Hornchurch Stadium is at 2pm on Saturday. 

Hanworth Villa will hope to end a two-match winless run this weekend as they host Leatherhead in the Isthmian League South Central. 

The Villains somehow managed to keep a clean sheet without a goalkeeper last weekend away against Bedfont Sports after Luke Ruddick went off injured. 

Leatherhead are experiencing a rocky patch of their own in recent weeks, having won once in five, but three of their last four wins have come away from home. 

Kick-off at Rectory Meadow is at 3pm on Saturday.  

Chelsea Women hope to keep their long unbeaten run rolling as they welcome Reading to Kingsmeadow in the WSL. 

Chelsea are three points clear at the top of the table courtesy of having played a game more than Arsenal and Manchester United, but did fail to win their first game since the opening day of the season, a 1-1 draw away against Real Madrid Femenino in the Champions League. 

Reading are sat in tenth in the WSL, but have won four points out of a possible six in their last two matches and did beat Chelsea last season. 

Kick-off at Kingsmeadow is at 6:45pm on Sunday.
