After picking up a point at Crystal Palace last Saturday, the Lilywhites will hope for a win this weekend

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies host Brighton & Hove Albion Women on Sunday in the Continental Tyres Cup eager to register a first victory in this season’s competition.

Karen Hills’ team started the Group One South campaign with a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace last weekend before losing 5-4 on penalties.

Josie Green’s first-half goal was enough to earn Spurs a point on the road, after Kallie Balfour had levelled things up at Bromley FC, but the narrow shoot-out loss means the Eagles were able to snatch two points from the contest.

Ahead of hosting Brighton at Cheshunt on Sunday, 1pm kick-off, first-team head coach Juan Amoros called on the team to improve their clinical edge in the penalty area.

He said: “I feel we played some attractive football and created more chances than the opposition.

“But we have to be better in front of goal in the same way that we should have defended better in the second half.

“It was just one of those games. The positive for us is the team did well, and we dominated the game.

“But we should have put the game to bed earlier, probably within the first half, so we are gutted we didn’t win.”

After match day one, Spurs sit in fourth place with one point – ahead of their next opponents Brighton, who lost to Chelsea Women recently.

The other sides involved in the Group One South include Palace, London Bees and Yeovil Town Ladies.

Hills’ team will be looking to earn a first win of the new campaign this weekend and will try to kick on from there ahead of starting their FA Women’s Championship term next month.

After impressing in the FA Women’s Super League 2 last season, the division was given a rebrand this summer and will now be known as the FA Women’s Championship.

Tottenham will face several sides they played during the past campaign, but will also take on the new Manchester United women’s team at some point this year.

Other new sides involved include Charlton Athletic Women, Palace, Leicester City Women and Lewes Women.

After coming seventh in the 2017/18 campaign with six wins from 18, Hills will aim for better this time around.
