Albion are set to give Norway goalkeeper Cecilie Fiskerstrand her first action for the club.

The 23-year-old has secured international clearance.

She is likely to get some playing time in the Continental Cup tie at Manchester United tomorrow.

Fiskerstrand signed an 18-month deal recently after leaving LSK Kvinner.

She joins fellow keepers Megan Walsh and Sophie Harris in the Seagulls ranks.

Harris played in all five Conti Cup group games, memorably keeping a clean sheet and saving a penalty in the win over Arsenal.

That was the key result in sending Albion through to the knockout stages.

Fiskerstrand is now in contention for the quarter-final tie.

Albion boss Hope Powell said: “For her, it is just about getting to know the players.

“She has only been here for seven days.

“It’s also about getting to know the players she will be up against. She has done very well.

“We would hope to give her some minutes, for sure.”

Walsh has played in 11 of the 12 league games and has impressed, though her late blunder gave Arsenal their final goal in Sunday’s 4-0 defeat.

Powell said: “Megan, we know, is a top-drawer goalkeeper.

“Yes, she made a mistake and it is magnified when you are in goal, sadly.

“But we are fortunate enough to have three decent goalkeepers. We have just got to keep the ball out of the net.”

Maya Le Tissier, who recently signed her first professional deal, missed the Arsenal game.

Albion will think carefully before bringing her back.

Powell said: “She has a slight injury so we are just trying to protect her.

“We can’t rush her back too soon and the Continental Cup perhaps isn’t the priority.”

Albion visit West Ham, the team just one point and one place above them, on Sunday.

The match is being played at Rush Green Stadium, Romford.
