The Ryman Cup and Capital Cup Finals are already in the bag - both finals against old rivals Charlton in April - and now the big one for Spurs.

Manager Karen Hills has said from the start of the season that she would love to see the team go as far as possible in the FA Women's Premier League Cup - contested between the FAWPL Southern and Northern Divisions - and now they are one step from the final with a semi-final tie against a Forest team sitting fourth in the Northern Division.

"The FA Cup is the prestigious, glamour competition whereas this is our national cup played between North and South and we've targeted this one from the start," said Karen.

"It would be such an achievement to reach this final and make it three cup finals in one season.

"But we can't afford to look too far ahead. We've had a tough run of fixtures and this week it's been about recovering and preparing for Forest.

"We know it will be tough. We travel up to Nottingham and Forest are in-form. They were fighting against relegation last season but they've completely turned it around.

"The players are so determined though and we'll give everything to get through."

The match is at Basford United FC, Nottingham at 2pm on Sunday.
