Leicester City Women Football Club

Preview: Durham vs LCWFC

Leicester City will look to bounce back, after a draw and defeat in their last two games, as they travel to unbeaten Durham women.

  • A win would raise Leicester City to 13 points, eight behind the leaders Tottenham Hotspur with a game in hand.
  • Durham are just one of two teams to remain unbeaten this season, the other being Manchester United
  • Durham have conceded the second fewest goals this season (3), behind Manchester United who have conceded just one goal.

Leicester had begun to make good headway this season, but a draw against Aston Villa at home and a defeat away to Sheffield United has left Leicester City six points adrift of fourth placed Charlton Athletic. Jonathan Morgan’s side will also be searching for their first clean sheet since the beginning of September, when they won 2-0 away to Crystal Palace.

They face a high flying Durham side who are looking to register their fifth win in a row. Durham have scored thirteen goals so far this season, they last dropped points in a 0-0 draw away to Aston Villa.

Head-to-Head

Leicester City have only met Durham once previously, in last season’s SSE Women’s FA Cup in what proved to be a goal-fest as the Foxes fell to a 5-2 defeat. Jonathan Morgan’s side pulled it back to 3-2 at the half-time break thanks to goals from Sophie Domingo and Leigh Dugmore.

Last Time Out

City

The Foxes fell to their third league defeat of the season at the hands of Sheffield United before the international break. Losing 1-0, with Foxes’ goalkeeper Demi Lambourne making a number of vital saves to keep the scoreline respectable.

Durham

Durham romped through a weak Millwall team to win 5-1 in their last outing. Millwall, the only team not to have tasted victory this season, put up little opposition and allowed Durham to score five for the second time in a row.

Stats

  • The Foxes have not failed to score in consecutive league games since April 2013.
  • With Tottenham Hotspur not in action this weekend, Durham could enter the top two with victory over Leicester City on Sunday.
  • Durham will be looking for their fifth consecutive league victory, they’ve netted 13 in their last four matches, conceding just once.
