Foster confirms Shannon O'Brien returns to the squad from injury.

"Janina [Leitzig] is back at 100 per cent," Foster announced. "Lize [Kop] has been playing well but it's good to have both senior goalkeepers back in contention again to push each other on.

"Shannon [O'Brien] is also doing well, and we're hoping that she is ready for the weekend. It's good to have both back and around the team as we head into a big game."

The Foxes will be without Australian full-back Courtney Nevin who remains sidelined with injury, while Academy star Denny Draper might not hit the football pitch again during the 2023/24 campaign. 

"Courtney [Nevin] is still out, so she won't be available," Foster added. "Denny Draper is also out, and her rehab will take us up until the end of the season, so it's unlikely that she will play again in this final run-in."
