Chelsea are currently league leaders however they only have a margin of two points over Titans in second, who have a game in hand. Both clubs have won three games but Chelsea have also drawn once, against Bristol in round one. Titans have had an impressive start to the season, winning their first two games by 13 and 15 goals respectively. They were up against a tougher challenge in their third game, only bettering Bristol by one goal having been five goals down at half-time.

This weekend, Bristol play Poole Phoenix after that narrow defeat to Titans last time around. Phoenix are currently bottom of the table having lost three from three this season so far.
