After victories at Yeovil Town and Leicester City, Karen Hills’ team were out to earn more success against Sheffield United
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies were denied the chance to finish a fantastic week with a win after the wet weather saw their home fixture with Sheffield United Women in the FA Women’s Championship on Sunday postponed.
Karen Hills’ team headed into the contest eyeing a fourth consecutive win, but heavy rain saw the match called off.
Spurs announced early on the morning of the match a pitch inspection would take place and an hour later, at 10.16, they confirmed Cheshunt FC’s Theobalds Lane pitch was unplayable.
A statement read: “Following a pitch inspection, our FA Women’s Championship game against Sheffield United Women has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

After winning 4-0 at Yeovil Town Ladies on September 16 in the Continental Tyres Cup Group One South, Spurs followed it up with a 3-0 league win at Leicester City Ladies on September 19.
But they were prevented from securing more success on Sunday by the poor weather across the south east of England.
