Bott Could Play A Part, Says Kirk
- LCFC Women face Tottenham Hotspur away on Wednesday (7pm GMT kick-off)
- CJ Bott could return to the squad after missing the last couple of games
- That WSL clash may be too soon for Bott, but City can't rule her out
- Jess Reavill will miss the trip to London due to personal reasons
City travel to face Spurs in the Barclays Women's Super League just three days after drawing 0-0 with Everton at King Power Stadium on Sunday. The Foxes are bottom, but could leapfrog the north Londoners, in 10th, with a win.
New Zealand defender Bott, though, has been absent since the 1-0 win at Liverpool Women in the middle of February. She will be monitored by the Club's medical team before a decision is made concerning her fitness to play.
Other than Jess Reavill, it will be the same squad available to us that only featured a few days ago against Everton.Willie Kirk
"It's possibly too early for CJ," the manager told the media in Friday's press conference at Belvoir Drive. "But we cant rule it out, we will have to see how she develops over the next 24 hours."
Other than the longer-term injuries to Shannon O'Brien, Jess Sigsworth and Lechante Paul, former Everton coach Kirk said that Academy defender Jess Reavill is the only absentee for Wednesday's game.
He added: "Jess will miss Tottenham. She has personal reason to miss the game, which we are aware of and totally understand, so she will stay at home for this one, and should be back for Aston Villa.
"That's it. Other than Jess, it will be the same squad available to us that only featured a few days ago against Everton, so we're looking forward to head into Wednesday's game with a strong team."
