Goals from Rianna Dean and Angela Addison moved Spurs Ladies up to second in the table

Spurs Ladies head coach Juan Amoros was pleased with the character his side showed as they fought back from a goal down to beat Crystal Palace Ladies 2-1 at Hayes Lane on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur sealed another vital win on the road thanks to goals from Rianna Dean and Angela Addison, as they recovered from an early setback after Kalie Balfour opened the scoring for Palace from a penalty.

“We are very pleased because it was not our best game, but we came out on top and deserved to win,” Amoros said at full-time.

“On the other side of things we need to be demanding on ourselves and the girls know we could have done some things better.

“We want to achieve something and we must look at the things we haven’t done so well. But overall of course we are happy.”

After falling behind early on to the Eagles, the Spurs Ladies head coach was delighted with the team’s determination to come back and win the game.

“I was very pleased and that is one of the big positives,” he added. “They took their chance early, but the players tried and tried and in the end they got the reward. We are very pleased the girls were mentally strong.”

The victory at Hayes Lane means Spurs Ladies head into the International break unbeaten in all competitions and in second place in the FA Women’s Championship.

And while this impressive start has certainly pleased the Spanish coach, he doesn’t want to get carried away at this early stage.

“One of our targets is that we don’t look further ahead than the next game and we take every game as a final,” Amoros finished.

“The team is doing really well and we are working in a positive environment. We are going to try and push on to the next level.”
