PREVIEW: Leicester City v Aston Villa

Leicester City and Aston Villa will be hoping to distance themselves from the Barclays FA Women’s Super League’s relegation zone when the pair meet at The Pirelli Stadium on Sunday.

The Foxes currently sit two points above the drop zone while Aston Villa have a six-point cushion and a game in hand ahead of this weekend’s clash.

Leicester City manager Lydia Bedford has no new injury concerns to contend with ahead of her side’s latest match. Connie Scofield and Paige Bailey-Gayle have returned to full training following lengthy injuries while goalkeeper Kirstie Levell is also back on the training pitch. Forward Lachante Paul remains a little way away from a return.

Aston Villa head coach Carla Ward has seen several members of her squad return to training this week after The Villans had to operate with limited squad numbers against Manchester City last weekend. Forward Emily Gielnik is away on international duty with Australia at the AFC Women’s Asian Cup India 2022 and is unavailable for selection while one other unnamed player is an injury doubt.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between Leicester City and Aston Villa is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm on Sunday. Tickets are available now and can be purchased by clicking here.
