After failing to pick up any points in a narrow 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last Wednesday, the Foxes’ efforts turn to Villa, who sit fifth in the WSL, 19 points ahead of Leicester.

Australian defender Nevin, who joined the Club during the January transfer window, spoke to the media about her feelings on the upcoming match, and her time so far in the Midlands.

“I'm enjoying being at Leicester and at the Club,” the full-back explained during Friday's press conference at Belvoir Drive. “They've welcomed me in, and I'm excited to be a part of this team. Coming into this kind of competition, it's been tough, but it's been good as well.


Nevin Taking Each Game As It Comes

Defender Courtney Nevin previews LCFC Women's tough test against Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

“I'm enjoying it so much and it’s amazing to have that fight that we need to keep going. We need to keep working towards getting off the bottom of the table. Each game is important in achieving that, but we need to focus on what we need to do now, and that's the Villa game."

Now just a point behind 11th-placed Brighton & Hove Albion and that elusive spot outside of the relegation zone, City have the chance to move themselves off the bottom of the WSL, but the 21-year-old understands that points are required to achieve this target.

“We're looking strong, and we're excited for the next game,” the defender continued. “We just keep working to move forward. We're not focusing on any other team, or any other game, but just what we can do during the Villa game.

“You've got to bring out that motivation in yourself and the team and do everything you can to do what’s necessary. It is a big test, and it's important. But we just need to focus on each game, and each week as it comes.”

We’ll give everything we’ve got to get the points, but there’s a lot more games to go yet.

Preparing to face a side who are seven places above them, and most recently beat Manchester City in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup, will be no easy task, but City's No.2 referenced how Leicester have done their homework on the Villans.

She added: “I think we're all focused. We're all confident and ready to fight. We need to focus on the game plan, listen to Willie [Kirk’s] instructions and be confident in our ability to work as a team.

“We've analysed their attacking power, but I think we're looking strong in training, and the back line is working really well together. We’ll give everything we’ve got to get the points, but there’s a lot more games to go yet.”
