Brighton head into Saturday's fixture off the back of a three-game winless run, leaving them without a victory since beating Leicester City 3-2 on March 24.

After playing out a goalless affair against West Ham United, the Seagulls went on to suffer a narrow 2-1 defeat in their home meeting with Everton.

They looked set to bounce back with a win when Elisabeth Terland opened the scoring in last Sunday's away game against Tottenham Hotspur.

However, Bethany England netted an 81st-minute equaliser to ensure that the spoils were shared, leaving Mikey Harris's side in eighth spot with 19 points to their name.

The Seagulls will now return to Broadfield Stadium, where they will attempt to end a run of four consecutive home league defeats.

Like their hosts, Aston Villa are also looking to end a poor spell of form after failing to win any of their last four matches.

The Villans lost to Arsenal and Chelsea on either side of a draw with Leicester, before they were held to a point in last Sunday's home clash with West Ham United.

Alisha Lehmann thought that she had won the game with her 71st-minute effort, only to see her effort cancelled out by Shannon Cooke in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Having mustered 21 points from 20 matches, Carla Ward's side will fall considerably short of the 37-point tally that saw them finish in fifth place last season.

Although they may have experienced an underwhelming campaign, Aston Villa have the chance to complete a league double in their final away game after recording a narrow 1-0 win in December's reverse league fixture.

Team News

Brighton midfielder Julia Zigiotti Olme is a doubt after she was drawn in the first half against Tottenham following a clash of heads.

Portugal international Tatiana Pinto could be brought into the side if Zigiotti Olme is unable to take her place in the side.

Having scored 13 goals in 20 WSL appearances this season, Terland will be looking to add to her impressive tally when she leads the line against Aston Villa.

As for the visitors, they are still unable to call upon the services of goalkeeper Daphne van Domselaar due to a hip injury.

Lucy Parker and Lucy Staniforth are both closing in on a return to fitness, but it remains to be seen whether she will be passed fit for Saturday's contest.

Goalkeeper Anna Leat and defender Rachel Corsie are both available for selection after serving one-match suspensions.

Brighton & Hove Albion Women possible starting lineup:
Loeck; Bremer, Bergsvand, Thorisdottir, Pattinson; Symonds, Losada, Zigiotti Olme; Haley, Lee, Terland

Aston Villa Women possible starting lineup:
Leat; Mayling, Patten, Turner, Maritz; Nobbs, Taylor; Leon, Dali, Hanson, Daly

We say: Brighton & Hove Albion Women 0-2 Aston Villa Women

Brighton have lost each of their last four home matches, and we think that run will continue against an Aston Villa side that has won three of their previous five away league games.
