Cliftonville Ladies take their 100 per cent record to Midgley Park tonight when they face Linfield Ladies in the Danske Bank Women's Premiership. The Reds made it five wins out of five last week when Marissa Callaghan's goal was enough to seal a 1-0 win over Sion Swifts Ladies at Solitude, a victory which put them five points clear at the top of the table.

The Blues will be looking to bounce back from last week's 1-0 defeat to Crusaders Strikers at Seaview. The south Belfast club have just two wins from their five games so far, so a win over the table-toppers would be a significant statement.

Crusaders themselves make the trip to the Brandywell tonight to take a Derry City Women's team who were on the receiving end of an 8-2 thumping by Glentoran Women last week. Amy McGivern's goal gave the Crues that win over Linfield last week and they will be looking to record back-to-back victories for the first time this season by the banks of the Foyle.

Second-placed Glentoran will be hoping to narrow the gap on the Reds when they host Sion Swifts tonight. They will look continue their fine scoring form from last week against the league's bottom side, with Rachel Rogan bagging a hat-trick in that comprehensive win over Derry while Sion Swifts are seeking their first win of the season.
