The team is on fire in front of goal.

They followed Sunday's 9-1 win against Carshalton in the Capital Cup with a 12-0 victory at Whyteleafe LFC in the Boux Avenue Cup on Tuesday.

Enfield Town Ladies are next in the firing line in the second round of the FAWPL Cup at Cheshunt FC on Sunday (2pm).

Spurs memorably won the competiiton last season and are not planning on letting go easily.

Level-headed as ever, manager Karen Hills will tell her team to go out and win - and 1-0 will do

"We have to see it as another game and another cup competition we want to progress in," said Karen.

"We approach every game with the same mentality.

"We won't be thinking 'goals' or looking back at this week's wins, it's about Sunday and putting on another performance we can be proud of. It's a cup game and all we're thinking about it trying to get through to the next round."

So what is clicking? The team remains unbeaten in 2016-17 - including pre-season friendlies - and look very much in line to compete for the top three - Karen's main aim at the start of the campaign.

"The girls are playing with so much confidence and that's down to them working hard in training and delivering in games," added Karen. "They are doing everything they are being asked to on and off the field.

"There is no magic formula - it's just all coming together and everyone is in a really good place at the moment both individually and as a squad."

Come and cheer on Spurs Ladies - kick-off is 2pm at Cheshunt FC, Theobalds Lane, on Sunday.
