Karen Hills’ Spurs team will look to reclaim first place in the FA Women’s Championship this weekend
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies will return to FA Women’s Championship action this weekend eager to return to the summit again.
Karen Hills’ team didn’t play last Sunday and it allowed Manchester United Women the chance to take over at the top of the table.
The Red Devils did just that as they thrashed Millwall Lionesses by an 8-0 score to go a point ahead of Tottenham.
After eight games, United have seven wins and one draw to their name while Spurs have 21 points after winning seven of their matches and losing just the once – away to the leaders on November 4 after assist Queen Jessica Naz finally got off the mark for her new club.

It was an impressive win and they will look to build on this on Sunday when Durham Women visit Theobalds Lane.
