Hope Powell has named a squad of 19 players to face Northern Ireland in their fourth European Championship qualifier - their first to be played away from home.
So far England have recorded three wins against Northern Ireland, Belarus and Spain, with nine goals scored and nothing conceded in any of those matches.
They will be looking to continue that record after defeating Norway earlier this month in a friendly in Cyprus, although Northern Ireland will be eager to get off the mark in Group One having suffered four defeats thus far.
When the sides last met, before the World Cup last year, Kelly Smith scored the first goal seven minutes into the second half after the visitors had frustrated the Three Lions in the first period at Gillingham. After the break, an own goal, Katie Chapman and Lianne Sanderson's first international goal ensured that England ran out 4-0 winners.
England's winning start has taken them to the top of the group, by a margin of two points from the Czech Republic and Spain, who England beat in their last qualifying match with a goal from Karen Carney. If they can pull off victories in the next two matches against Northern Ireland and the Czechs, it would mean that they would open up a huge lead of eight points with three matches left to play.
England squad:
Siobhan CHAMBERLAIN Chelsea
Carly TELFORD Leeds Utd
Laura BASSETT Birmingham City
Alex SCOTT Arsenal
Casey STONEY Chelsea
Rachel UNITT Everton
Faye WHITE Arsenal
Mary PHILLIP Arsenal
Lindsay JOHNSON Everton
Anita ASANTE Arsenal
