Premier Division Preview  :  Sat 20th April  
    Coventry United v Stourport Swifts
    Highgate United v Shepshed Dynamo
    Ilkeston Town v Walsall Wood
    Loughborough Univ v Coventry Sphinx
    Lye Town v Boldmere St Michaels
    Quorn v Wolverhampton Sporting
    Romulus v Sporting Khalsa
    Worcester City v Dunkirk

The biggest game of the season sees the top two face off in what could be a promotion decider. Ilkeston Town are 3 points ahead of Walsall Wood going into the game but a win for Wood will see them level with two games remaining. A big crowd is expected at The New Manor Ground to see if Ilkeston can make it 8 consecutive home wins to seal the title. Sporting Khalsa need 2 points to confirm a 3rd place finish and they travel to League Cup finalists Romulus who need points to ensure they finish outside of the bottom three. Loughborough University currently sit in 3rd bottom and they host Coventry Sphinx who are on for top 6 finish. Shepshed Dynamo could finish in the top four and they travel to Highgate United knowing a win would lift them above Westfields. Boldmere St Michaels are another club aiming for the top 6 and they travel to The Sports Ground to face mid-table Lye Town. Coventry United welcome Stourport Swifts to The Butts Park Arena, for the first of three home games to finish. Swifts came out on top in the reverse fixture winning 2-1 at Walshes Meadow. Quorn could still finish in the top 6 and they welcome relegated Wolverhampton Sporting Community to Farley Way. The other relegated side, Dunkirk travel to Worcester City hoping that there is not a repeat of the scoreline from earlier in the season when Worcester won 6-1.
