THE OPPOSITION

Currently top of the FA Women’s Championship, Leicester City became a full-time side in the summer and have reaped the rewards.

Led by Jonathan Morgan, the Foxes have lost just once in the league this term and have put in a number of eye-catching displays.

Key to their fine form has been free-scoring Natasha Flint, who has been ably assisted by the likes of Charlie Devlin, Paige Bailey-Gayle and Lachante Paul.

In midfield, Remi Allen is a player with heaps of top tier experience and Sam Tierney, Kirstie Levell and Sophie Barker have all tasted success at this level.
