The Foxes were defeated for just the second time all season last weekend, beaten 1-0 by Lewes Women at The Dripping Pan, courtesy of Ini Umotong's first-half penalty.

That result ended an incredible 12-game winning streak in the league which stretched back to November and was also the first time that City have failed to score during a Championship match in 2020/21, outlining the consistency and impressive nature of their achievements across the season.

"It's gutting because we wanted to go to the end of the season unbeaten," the midfielder told LCFC TV, reflecting on the Lewes loss. "But I think ultimately we've probably got what we deserved.

We have to just focus, regroup, we've got another game to go, we've got an FA Cup game to go so we've got to be professional, we've got to finish this season strong.

"I think Lewes were great, they had their game plan, they executed it really well and we just weren't good enough on the day.

"I think it was just quality to be honest with you. Obviously the pitch, as you've seen, doesn't help matters but it's the same for both teams so our quality in and around the box for the whole game just wasn't good enough.

"What Lewes did was they pressed us really well, counter-pressed us really well and I think they deserved the points."

With Charlton Athletic Women up next in the final fixture of the Championship campaign on Sunday (2pm kick-off) - a game you can watch live and for free on LCFC TV - Allen is keen to ensure the Foxes go out of the division in style.


Allen: Finish The Season Strongly

LCFC Women midfielder Remi Allen reflects on the Foxes 1-0 reverse at Lewes Women on Sunday.

It will be a historic day for the Club as they prepare to play their first-ever game at King Power Stadium and are set to be presented with the Championship trophy following their promotion to the Barclays FA Women's Super League.

The 30-year-old added: "Of course we've had a fantastic season, promotion is great, but for us, we've got high standards, individuals have high standards and I didn't come here wanting to lose, nor did the team.

"But we have to just focus, regroup, we've got another game to go, we've got an FA Cup game to go so we've got to be professional, we've got to finish this season strong.

"As soon as you have a loss, you want to play again and you want to put it right and that will be our aim because, like I say, we want to finish the season on a high going into next year, so that will be the aim."
