An update from the women's and girls' set-up and a preview for Sunday's game.
Recent games between Tottenham and ourselves have always been competitive and I’m expecting Sunday to be no different."
James Marrs
Brighton & Hove Albion women’s manager James Marrs says he will utilise the squad going into Sunday’s Premier League Cup quarter-final tie with Tottenham Hotspur.
*
Albion will play their second cup match in as many weeks, following their 2-1 win over Blackburn last Sunday, and Marrs is targeting a place in the final four of another competition.
*
He said, “Recent games between Tottenham and ourselves have always been competitive and I’m expecting Sunday to be no different.
*
“This weekend’s game is vital for us as it’s a chance to get one step closer to another cup final and there is no doubt that winning trophies breeds confidence.
*
“I’ll be taking the opportunity to mix up the team a bit, because a number of players have been struggling with injuries and it allows some of the younger ones to stake their claims for first-team football.
*
“We have a thriving centre of excellence and academy at this football club and I’m looking forward to fielding a few more of our younger players on Sunday.”
*
The game kicks off at 2pm and will take place at Brimsdown FC, Goldsdown Road, Enfield, EN3 7RP.
