Focus returns to FA Cup this weekend as City look forward to a fifth round tie with Birmingham, where a win would see them gain a place in the quarter-finals.

However, they will be without Petermann for the upcoming clash, as Kirk outlined during Thursday's press conference at Belvoir Drive.

"It's just Lena Petermann that is out," he said. "She has a hamstring injury, so she'll miss the games leading into the international break.

She (Lena Petermann) had a pull on her hamstring doing high speed runs in the build-up to the Manchester City game.

"It was an injury that came out of nowhere. She was doing well and transitioning well into our style of play, so it's a shame of course; she had a pull on her hamstring doing high speed runs in the build-up to the Manchester City game. We're not too worried for her, we just need to be careful when we bring her back into the team.

The 45-year-old will be boosted by the return of Welsh international Josie Green, who was omitted from the Man City defeat with suspension.

"Josie [Green] will return," Kirk continued. "So it's good to have her back in the team, and we'll have a strong squad available to us to challenge for a place in the next round."
