After claiming their first-ever Women's Super League (WSL) scalp to set-up an FA Cup tie against 14-times winners Arsenal two weeks ago and beating Palace on penalties to reach the Capital Cup Final last week, Spurs now face title rivals Cardiff in the FA Women's Premier League Cup at Cheshunt FC on Sunday.

Four teams have broken away at the top of FAWPL - Charlton, Coventry United, Spurs and Cardiff - and Cardiff were finally beaten at the 12th attempt by Charlton on February 12. Spurs remain unbeaten, a point behind current leaders Charlton with three games in hand.

Indeed, Spurs remain unbeaten in all competitions this season with a place in the Ryman and Capital Cup Finals already in the bag.

To add extra spice to Sunday's semi-final, the teams met in the final last season, won by Spurs, their biggest win to date.

"I'm sure Cardff will be thinking about revenge for last season but we're focused and taking it game by game," said manager Karen Hills.

"It's a huge match with a cup final on the line and we're defending the trophy. Obviously it would mean a lot to get to the final again and that's what we're aiming for, three cup finals for the second-successive season.

"We're working hard, we're focused and determined and we'll be out to win it."
