Midfielder Jess Fishlock says Wales women's Euro 2017 qualifier against Norway on 7 June is not must-win.

Wales are third in qualifying Group 8, five points behind leaders Austria and second-placed Norway with three games remaining.

Only the eight group winners and six best runners-up are guaranteed automatic qualification to next year's finals in the Netherlands.

"I don't believe it's win or bust," Fishlock told BBC Wales Sport.

"But I do understand and comprehend the importance of it. It's a big one and I want to try and be available for it."

Fishlock fractured a tibia in Seattle Reign's 3-0 win over Boston Breakers on 24 April and was ruled out for between four and six weeks.

But the 29-year-old hopes to be fit for the game at Newport's Spytty Park, the first of Wales' remaining three qualifiers.
