The midfielder returned from injury last week and came off the bench to score twice against West Ham in the FA Women's Premier League on Sunday.

She opened the scoring on 68 minutes, volleying home after Megan Wynne's brave challenge and then after the huge blow of West Ham equalising in the final minute, Wendy was there again to head home from Sophie McLean's cross to secure the points in the fifth minute of added time.

"Wendy has been with us for five years now and she's just got better and better," said manager Karen.

"She's a huge part of this club on and off the pitch and her determination, will to win and ability, especially in front of goal, is a real driving force.

"Wendy has had a couple of offers to go elsewhere but she's very loyal, a Spurs fan who just wants to play for this team. All her family are Spurs fans as well and that's all she wants to do."

As for the win, Karen paid tribute to the team's determination after conceding such a late equaliser.

"The girls were not going to let that win go easily," she added. "Their heads could have gone down collectively but they believed they could find a winner in the time left and full credit to them, they did just that."
