Liverpool are looking for their second consecutive Women’s Super League win when they take on Leicester City at Prenton Park tomorrow (February 12).
The Reds beat Reading 2-0 last time out thanks to second half goals from Missy Bo Kearns and Ceri Holland.
The win was Liverpool’s first of 2023 after a run of four losses in all competitions, including exits from the League Cup and FA Cup.
The match was originally set to take place in December but was postponed due to a frozen pitch.
The Reds sit eighth in the WSL table with 11 points, eight points clear of their opponents at the bottom of the table.
Leicester have one league win all season, a 3-0 victory against Brighton.
The last time the two sides met was in the League Cup earlier this season, when the Reds ran out 4-0 winners.
A Liverpool win would put them further clear of Tottenham, who sit two points behind them in the table.
A win for Leicester would not be enough to take them out of the relegation zone but would move them within one point of 11th placed Reading.
Liverpool will again be without captain Niamh Fahey. The defender also missed out on the Reading game due to injury.
Forward Shanice van de Sanden remains out with a knee injury sustained in the warm-up of Liverpool’s postponed match against Chelsea.
Midfielder Carla Humphrey also misses out with concussion, and forward Leanne Kiernan remains a long-term absentee with an ankle injury sustained in Liverpool’s first game of the season.
Meanwhile, for Leicester, Ruby Mace is available after missing the Foxes’ 2-0 loss to Manchester City last time out.
The midfielder, on loan from the Citizens, was ineligible to play against her parent club.
Midfielder Monique Robinson also returns after a short spell on the side lines with an ankle knock.
