PREVIEW: Tottenham Hotspur v Everton

Tottenham Hotspur and Everton will be hoping to return to winning ways in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League when the pair meet at The Hive this afternoon.

Spurs have lost their last two matches without scoring while Everton are winless in their last three games.

The home side will be without four players for the match with head coach Rehanne Skinner confirming those absences yesterday. Goalkeeper Becky Spencer, defender Hannah Godfrey and forward Rachel Williams are all closing in on their respective returns but this weekend’s fixture will come too soon for the trio. Full-back Ashleigh Neville remains sidelined and is further away from returning to fitness than Spencer, Godfrey and Williams.

Everton manager Willie Kirk is not thought to have any fresh injury concerns to contend with as the club’s problems in the treatment room continue to recede. The Scot must decide whether to field Sandy MacIver or Tinja-Riikka Korpela in goal while defender Gabby George is in contention for her first start in more than a year.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Everton is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm while the match will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
