January signing Lisa Naalsund could be set to make her United debut at LSV having spent time working her way back up to fitness since the conclusion of the Norwegian league late last year. Skinner revealed that the midfielder has been fully integrated into team training this week and could feature against Leicester. Fellow newcomer Jayde Riviere is the only player unavailable and is ‘three weeks away’ from being ready, according to the boss.
United Women’s former assistant manager Willie Kirk will be in the dugout for the visitors on Sunday. There are also several ex-Reds in the Foxes’ set-up, one of them being Abbie McManus, but the defender is currently sidelined due to a fractured leg. Leicester’s no.9, Jess Sigsworth, is another, but she is also ruled out as she continues her recovery from an ACL problem.
Leicester recently welcomed back Hannah Cain from injury; the 24-year-old forward proved the difference against Liverpool last time out, scoring in the eighth minute of the Foxes’ 1-0 win at Prenton Park on 12 February.
