Arsenal will be hoping to put down another marker in their battle for third place in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League when they come up against in-form Brighton & Hove Albion at Meadow Park this afternoon.
The Gunners currently occupy third place on goal difference but they do have a game in hand on fourth-placed side Manchester United.
Arsenal head coach Joe Montemurro could welcome Australian international defender Steph Catley back to the side following a lengthy absence through injury. Swiss international Noelle Maritz is believed to have shaken off a knock and could return alongside Lia Walti, her teammate of club and country, who was given time to rest following her return from international duty. Jen Beattie, Viktoria Schnaderbeck and Lisa Evans remain sidelined with their respective injuries.
Brighton & Hove Albion arrive in Boreham Wood having already won at Chelsea and drawn at Manchester City this season. Manager Hope Powell continues to be without long term absentees Katie Robinson and Danielle Bowman but is not thought to have any new injury concerns to contend with.
Arsenal’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
