Hope Powell’s team are fourth in the Women’s top flight after their impressive 1-0 victory against Everton last weekend thanks to a second half winner from Aileen Whelan.

The team have usually played their home fixtures at The People’s Pension Stadium in Crawley and Sunday will be only the second time this season the Women have played at the Amex.

Albion kicked off the new season in Falmer when they beat West Ham United 2-0 in September, and head coach Powell will hope for a similar outcome against struggling Leicester, who are bottom of the table and have lost all six of their league matches.

It's an ideal time to use the stadium as the men's team are on international break and resume their Premier League campaign at Aston Villa on November 20.

What time is kick-off?

The match kicks-off at the Amex Stadium at 2pm Sunday, Novermber 14.

Hope Powell said

“The players loved playing the West Ham game at the Amex. The crowd were brilliant and really got behind the team, and for our younger players in particular, it was a fantastic experience to play in such a great stadium.

“We’re really pleased to be back at the Amex. “We are looking forward to facing Leicester, hopefully in front of another really big crowd.”

Powell was pleased with the performance last week at Everton particularly after the disappointment of their FA Cup semi-final loss to impressive unbeaten WSL leaders Arsenal.

“The conditions were really difficult but I thought we deserved to win. Defensively we were solid again and restricted them to very little.

“It’s a great result but now we have the opportunity to build on it, hopefully in front of a big crowd.”
