Spurs Ladies Face Chelsea Test to Reach Conti Cup Q-Fs

The last group games in the Continental Tyres Cup are played this midweek, with one quarter-final berth still to be decided.


Tuesday 5th December
GROUP 1 NORTH: Sunderland v Liverpool (South Shields FC, 6pm)

Wednesday 6th December
GROUP 2 NORTH: Doncaster Rovers Belles v Manchester City (Keepmoat Stadium, 7.30pm)

GROUP 2 SOUTH: Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur (Kingsmeadow Stadium, 7pm)

Newcomers Tottenham Hotspur need an unlikely point at free-scoring Chelsea to pip Bristol City to second place in Group 2 South. Laura Hayes’ side have already finished top after winning all three games to date.

First place is at stake in Group 1 North when Sunderland host Liverpool, the game having been rained off at the weekend. Both sides are already into the last eight but the Black Cats must win to take top spot from the Reds.

Manchester City have safely sealed their progress and will win Group 2 North ahead of Everton, as long as they do not lose by a couple of goals or more at Doncaster Rovers. Such an outcome would see the Belles end above Birmingham City in third position.

The quarter-final draw will be made this Thursday.
