Joe Montemurro has provided us with an injury update ahead of our Champions League last-16 clash with Slavia Prague on Wednesday.
Louise Quinn, Katrine Veje, Lia Walti and Jordan Nobbs all travelled, but each player is at a different stage in their recovery process.
Read on to find out the latest from our head coach:
on Louise Quinn and Katrine Veje’s fitness - and whether they could play a part…
Yeah, we’ll see how the game goes. We’re obviously very conscious of getting them on the park and back in the situation. But it’s got to be right for them and at the right moment.
on the squad’s general fitness…
Lia Walti also picked up 60 minutes on Sunday in a high intensity game so she’s just about there, and Jordan Nobbs is back. She’s backing up games now. We’re getting the squad in a really good position at the moment and we’ve also got a very big October with City and both Champions League games, but November’s also banked up with a lot of games, where we’ll want to build up a good run.
