PREVIEW: Leicester City v Charlton Athletic

Leicester City play their final game in the second tier on Sunday and it comes at the King Power Stadium as Jonathan Morgan’s side face Charlton Athletic.

The Foxes have already won the FA Women’s Championship title but they will still be keen to record another win to cap-off a near-perfect season.

Prior to a 1-0 loss to fifth-placed Lewes last time out, Leicester City had won all of their previous 12 league games and had kept clean sheets in their last five victories. 

The home side will be hoping that striker Natasha Flint can continue her fine form in-front of goal that has seen her net 19 goals in all competitions this season. Her scoring return has been a key factor in Leicester City’s 15 wins out of a possible 19 in the league. 

As for Charlton Athletic, they travel to the East Midlands with their eyes firmly set on rebuilding for next season with seventh place the highest that they can finish. The 2021/2022 season will be Karen Hills’ first full season as Addicks manager having only joined in March of this year, although the South East Londoners are unbeaten under her leadership so far. 

These sides last faced each other in December with Flint and Remi Allen on the scoresheet in a 2-0 victory for Leicester City at The Oakwood. Charlton Athletic will be looking for another scalp after an impressive 2-1 win over second-placed Durham last weekend. 

Leicester City’s FA Women’s Championship fixture against Charlton Athletic kicks-off at 2pm on Sunday and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
