Barrow's Georgia Stanway looks set to return to action for the first time in a month with Manchester City this weekend.

Stanway and her fellow City players have not played since their 3-0 win at home to Göteborg in the UEFA Women's Champions League on December 16, with last Saturday's game against West Ham United postponed due to coronavirus.

But this weekend they are due to host Aston Villa at the club's Academy Stadium (12.30pm kick-off) in the FA Women's Super League.

City are currently fourth in the league table and looking to close the gap to rivals Manchester United, who sit top and eight points clear of their neighbours albeit having played a game more.

Chelsea and Arsenal separate the two sides in the standings.

Before the break City had won three, drawn two and lost just one of their previous six league games.

They had also enjoyed success in the Champion's League, with Stanway scoring her 50th goal for the club as they progressed in the competition to reach the Round of 32.

Villa, meanwhile, are second bottom of the league with just two wins from their last six games, with just six points from the eight league games they have played so far.
