More on this story...

- LCFC Women travel to play Crystal Palace Women at Hayes Lane on Sunday (2pm kick-off)
- The Foxes are coming into the game off the back of a 2-1 victory over Liverpool
- Manager Jonathan Morgan says City are fully focused on putting in a repeat performance this weekend
- He adds that every team in the FA Women's Championship presents a tough fixture, especially away from home

City came out on top against the league's early front runners, Liverpool, last weekend, winning 2-1 at Farley Way Stadium to maintain an unbeaten start to the season.

While Morgan praised his side for that display, he knows it must be followed up by more of the same against Palace to count for anything.

He revealed everyone within the group has been fully focused in training and is excited for the next challenge ahead.

"Sunday was a great day and we were really pleased with how we handled the game," Morgan reflected to LCFC.com.

Morgan congratulates the players after last weekend's win over Liverpool.

"We've come into training this week naturally with a positive mindset, but we've firmly turned our attentions to Crystal Palace and we know what they're about, we know their capabilities.

"We're getting ourselves ready for that and hopefully we can come out with another successful victory.

"It's a great result, but it's just one game, it doesn't define the season. This result means nothing if we don't go and back it up with another good display against Palace.

"Saying that, we know what Palace are like, we know they are a good, physical team, we know they have very fast attackers and they'll want to hit us on the counter attack.

"We've prepared ourselves properly for that and hopefully we can do what we did against Liverpool."

Morgan believes that the ultra competitive nature of the FA Women's Championship means City will have to be at the top of their game to take a positive result from their trip to south London.

"You can't take any team in this league for granted," he explained. "Every team has their own style and their own way of playing.

"It's a tough league the Championship and above all else, it has a lot of parts and that's every team fighting until the final whistle because they believe they can do something in every game.

"Crystal Palace are no different to that and I just hope our girls turn up with the exact same mindset that they did against Liverpool and I feel that will be a good start to hopefully getting the victory."

After facing Sheffield United Women in their only previous away game of the season, Sunday presents the furthest trip away for the Foxes so far.

The good thing about our team now is that we are starting to settle and we are starting to get that team spirit coming through at the minute.

LCFC Women's manager says it will be good for the players to come together outside of the usual matchday or training environment and learn about each other on a personal level.

"Any away trip, especially if you get a victory at the end of it, is always a good day for team bonding," Morgan said of the prospect of the long trip.

"The girls get to know each other a little bit more outside the football environment on the coach, so it's always an opportunity to bond.

"The good thing about our team now is that we are starting to settle and we are starting to get that team spirit coming through at the minute.

"This will be another great opportunity for the girls just to get to know each other that little bit more and understand each other a little bit more as well."
