Spurs v United Women - preview

22 March 2019

Sheffield United women return to action away at promotion-chasing Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

After the original match was postponed back in September, the trip to Cheshunt now acts as one of United's several games in hands on their rivals and a win would move the Blades above Aston Villa.

Carla Ward will be hoping her side can build on the recent victory at home to Crystal Palace but Karen Hills' side sit top of the FA Women's Championship and have only lost twice all season.

But Ward will be encouraged by her team's performances so far in 2019, including against Tottenham back in January, and her side have momentum on their backs after a 2-0 win last time out.

Goals from Jade Pennock and Ebony Salmon in the second half ensured the Blades sealed a vital three points at home to Crystal Palace at Olympic Legacy Park.

Salmon, on loan from Manchester United, was making her club debut when the two sides met at the start of January, the Blades on the wrong end of a closely fought match with Spurs taking the three points with a 2-1 victory.

Tottenham narrowly beat Leicester City in their last match before a postponement last week at Aston Villa means they're coming into the game without having played a league game for over a month.

With Manchester United facing Charlton and Spurs themselves hosting Casey Stoney's side next week, it's a vital game for both sides but Ward will only be focused on ensuring another victory for the Blades as they look to finish best of the rest behind the top four.
