This week there are five games involving D1N clubs, including Carterton's postponed County Cup game from last week.
Oxford Athletic v Carterton (13:30 ko)
Another welcome break from league action for Carterton as they make the journey up the A40 to face Thames Valley Division 1 side Oxford Athletic in a County Cup Quarter-Final tie. Carterton saw off Headington Amateurs in the previous round whilst Athletic had a walkover against Summertown Stars. On Sunday Zoe Pugh's goal for Carterton meant that she had now scored half of Carterton's goals. However, Oxford Athletic's Beverley Hirons can also lay claim to this statistic, having scored 13 of Athletic's 26 in all competitions this season.

League Cup (14:00 ko)
Eversley & California v Winchester City Flyers
Winchester currently sit bottom of the Premier League. However, they have only played six league matches due to their various cup runs and postponements, five fewer than Wycombe who are only four points better off. League-wise, Eversley are in a similar position. They sit second from bottom of Division 1 North but have also played fewer games than the teams above them. Recent form has started to pick up, they remain unbeaten in their last three games.

Milton United v Wycombe Wanderers
Although this is a match up between Division 1 and the Premier League there is in effect only two places separating the sides. Milton currently lead the way in D1N whilst Wycombe are second from bottom of the top flight. Wanderers showed plenty of fight in their last league game, coming back from 3-1 down to level it up before losing out to a late Abingdon Town winner. The third time they have lost by the odd goal in seven at home this season. Milton, as well as being unbeaten league leaders, are also top scorers with 37 goals in their 10 league outings. This could well be an intriguing match-up.

League (14:00 ko)
Penn & Tylers Green v Long Crendon
Expect a close encounter between these two. Their last meeting, back in November, ended in a 1-1 draw. Henna Hussain scoring for Penn and Amber Catell on the mark for Long Crendon. To add to that, both Penn and Crendon have drawn five of their nine league games and are only separated by one place and three points, Penn being just ahead of their visitors. It should be a close game between two evenly matched sides. Anyone want to bet against a draw?

Woodley United v Caversham United
A big local derby for both teams. Caversham drew last time out but have not won a league game since they beat Kidlington 1-0 at the end of October. Woodley, by contrast, are on a fantastic run, winning heir last six league games and scoring 26 goals without conceding a solitary goal at the other end. This run kicked off with a 5-0 win over the Goats at Mapeldurham in November. Woodley's May Hamblin is sitting second in the top scorer chart with 9 so far. However, United spread the goals around with 13 different players already on the scoresheet this season.
