The duo netted on Sunday to help Karen Hills’ side fight back from a goal down to defeat Oxford United Women 2-1 and they host Watford Ladies next
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies’ Coral-Jade Haines and Ryah Vyse were full of smiles in their post-match interview after their goals contributed significantly in a vital 2-1 win against Oxford United Women on Sunday in the FA Women’s Super League 2.
After dominating for long periods of the first half, Spurs found themselves 1-0 down at the interval after Chloe Chivers had converted for the away team just before the half hour mark.
At half time, Karen Hills encouraged her side to ‘keep going’ and keep their heads up which spurred the team to go on and end an unfortunate run of seven consecutive defeats.
Midfielder Haines, who was awarded with ‘Player of the Match’ by the Spurs Ladies Supporters Group, made it 1-1 when she scored the follow up to a saved penalty kick from Renee Hector, just as she did when Sarah Wiltshire’s penalty was saved in the game against Sheffield FC.
Within 10 minutes, defender Vyse went on to score her first goal for Spurs Ladies to make it 2-1, which turned out to be the decisive goal of the match.
After the game, a delighted Vyse said: “It feels really good (the result). I think it was a long time waiting and we’re so happy to have finally got the win.

“We got the penalty and Coral picked up on it and then I think we just got the momentum. When it was 1-1 we had it in our heads that we were going to win this game.”
Haines, who had yet another notable performance for Spurs, added: “I think our performances haven’t really reflected the results in previous games and finally we can put a win down that actually reflects how hard we have been working and how well we’ve been playing.
“We went 1-0 down and we carried on battling and came out with a win so I think it reflects what we’ve been doing for the last three, four to five games.
“We knew from the start that we had to work hard and make sure we were in their faces all the time. I think the link up play was really well, we worked together really good in midfield and I think that showed in the game.”
The victory means that Spurs Ladies move up to 6th place in the FA Women’s Super League 2 and they are next in action on Thursday 22nd February when they face 10th place Watford Ladies at Cheshunt FC.
