PREVIEW: Birmingham City v Arsenal

Birmingham City play the second game at their temporary ‘home’ of St George’s Park when Arsenal provide the opposition on Sunday.

The Blues saw last weekend’s home fixture against Manchester City moved from the SportNation.bet Stadium to Burton upon Trent by The Football Association and the same decision has been taken for this weekend’s meeting with The Gunners.

Birmingham City head coach Carla Ward has more players available to her than of late, although the Blues still have several absentees. Heidi Logan, Veatriki Sarri, Connie Scofield and Lily Simkin all continue to be sidelined, however, there is good news on Christie Murray who is back in training and likely to be involved against The Gunners.

Arsenal head coach Joe Montemurro could welcome back Kim Little with the player having returned to training. The North Londoners remain without the services of long-term absentees Steph Catley and Viktoria Schnaderbeck. Caitlin Foord is pushing for a start after overcoming injury to feature from the bench in last weekend’s 4-0 victory over Aston Villa at The Banks’s Stadium.

Birmingham City’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Arsenal at St George’s Park is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm on Sunday afternoon. The game will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
