Spurs Ladies collected a comfortable three points as they returned to league action against Plymouth on Sunday.

Rosie Kmita - hit a belter against PlymouthAvilla Bergin - opened the scoring, set-up the third v Plymouth

It was a rare outing in the FA Women's Premier League for the ladies who are still firing on four fronts in cup action.

Indeed, with a final in the bag, another semi-final to follow this weekend, the League Cup quarter-final and the FA Cup on the horizon, it's no surprise to learn that this was the team's first FAWPL match since December!

Avilla Bergin's early goal paved the way for a commanding Spurs display at Cheshunt FC.

Bianca Baptiste provided the assist for Bergin's goal on three minutes before Rosie Kmita hit a spectacular effort from 30 yards for 2-0 on 25 minutes.

Chances then came and went for Baptiste, Wendy Martin and Bergin before Martin finished clinically one-on-one from Bergin's pass to wrap it up on 75 minutes.

"It was a comfortable win, my only complaint would be that we didn't have more goals to show for it," said manager Karen Hills.

"Ri Soobadoo was excellent in midfield and really pulled the strings, she might have ended up with about 10 assists with the chances she created!

"It was our first league match since before Christmas, a good performance, a clean sheet, three points - a job well done."

Spurs Ladies v Plymouth: Toni-Anne Wayne, Sophie McLean, Alex Keown, Jenna Schillaci (Wendy Martin 40), Mollie Kmita (Amy Cooper 65), Ri Soobadoo, Josie Green, Lucia Leon, Bianca Baptiste, Avilla Bergin, Rosie Kmita (Shannon Moloney 71). Substitute (unsed): Leanne Mabey.

SEMI-FINAL NEXT

Spurs Ladies aim for their second final of the campaign when they take on Camden Town in the semi-final of the Capital Cup at Cheshunt FC on Sunday (February 21, 2pm).
