No New Injury Concerns Ahead Of Brighton Women
- LCFC Women take on Brighton & Hove Albion on the final day of the Barclays Women's Super League season
- Willie Kirk says there are no injury concerns within the squad
- Shannon O'Brien and Georgia Eaton-Collins are available for Saturday's fixture at Broadfield Stadium
The Foxes rounded off their home campaign in the WSL last weekend when they were narrowly beaten 2-1 by West Ham United at King Power Stadium, after a deflection from Sophie Howard and a second-half penalty from Dagný Brynjarsdóttir. That means that City's fate will be decided on the last day.
Ahead of Leicester's trip south to take on 10th placed Brighton, Willie Kirk provided an update on his squad's fitness levels, confirming that he has no new concerns, barring the suspension to Manchester City loanee Ruby Mace.

The former Everton manager also said that defender Georgia Eaton-Collins has returned to full-contact training, and offers an option in defence, while striker Shannon O'Brien continues to build up her strength, as she aims to help the team finish the season strongly.
"Ruby will obviously miss this game due to her red card against West Ham," Kirk told the media during Thursday's press conference at Belvoir Drive. "Otherwise, there are no new injury concerns. Everyone is available so it's been a great training week from everyone as they all want to play.
"Georgia returns to the squad so is available for selection, and we've seen Shannon join back up with the team after such a long time on the sidelines so it's great to have her as another attacking option this weekend.
"It's typical that you have to juggle with injuries all season, and make amends to your line-up based on those injuries, whether they are long-term or short term, but now everyone is fit when it comes to the end of the season. But it's a good situation to be in heading into a big match against Brighton."
