PREVIEW: Birmingham City v Everton

Birmingham City play their third ‘home’ fixture at St George’s Park this evening when Everton provide the opposition in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.

Discussions between Blues officials and The Football Association are continuing as the two parties aim to come to an agreement over where Birmingham City will host their home games going forward.

Birmingham City go into the match without a number of players.┬áHeidi Logan, Veatriki Sarri, Connie Scofield and Lily Simkin all continue to be sidelined with none of those players’ returns seemingly imminent. Christie Murray made her comeback from injury against Arsenal at the weekend and will be hoping for more minutes while the likes of Jamie-Lee Napier, Lucy Whipp and Claudia Walker will be pushing for starts.

Everton boss Willie Kirk will welcome on-loan Manchester City midfielder Jill Scott back to his squad after she was ineligible to face her parent club on Sunday. The Blue Girls lost both Danielle Turner and Ingrid Moe Wold to injury in the first half of that match. Kirk has confirmed that Turner is in contention for a place on the bench, however, Norwegian international defender Wold is definitely out.

Birmingham City’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Everton is scheduled to kick-off at 7pm this evening and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
