Karen Hills’ team will entertain the Women’s Super League leaders later this month

Spurs Ladies were handed a plum tie in the fifth round of the FA Cup when the draw was made on Monday evening.

Manchester City Women, of the Women’s Super League, will make the trip down to Cheshunt FC’s Theobalds Lane on Sunday, February 17.

City are the current leaders of the top flight and will prove difficult opposition for Karen Hills’ Tottenham Hotspur Ladies.

This will be the first time the two clubs have met and Spurs reached the fifth round with a 3-0 win away to Crystal Palace Women last weekend.

Goals from Jessica Naz, Ashleigh Neville and Coral-Jade Haines confirmed the Lilywhites’ place in the next stage of the competition.

This equals Tottenham’s best run in the tournament, but they know they will have to cause a big upset to go any further.
