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.
