Chelsea Women v West Ham United Women (2pm) – Preview:

West Ham United face a huge test when they begin their League Cup campaign against Chelsea at Kingsmeadow.

The Hammers travel across the capital in good spirits, having picked up their first league points of the season – Canadian international, Adriana Leon, with the only goal of the game just before the half-hour mark as Birmingham City were seen off at the Rush Green Stadium in front of a crowd of around 1,500.

Chelsea picked up a point last time out – Adelina Engman’s stoppage-time goal cancelling out a strike from Brighton’s Aileen Whelan six minutes beforehand.

That performance frustrated the Blues Scottish international forward, Erin Cuthbert.

“We were disappointing today, we created enough chances in the first half, I thought we had a good first half,” she told www.chelsea fc.com.

“We need to accept that teams are getting better and that the gap is closing. It’s really good as players to come against this every week, it’s very competitive, but it’s hard when a team bank up, they worked so hard and tirelessly. We have to match that first and foremost but I don’t think we had enough quality today.”

Tickets for this match are priced as follows:
Adults: £3
Juniors (under-20): £1
Seniors (over-65): £1

Tottenham Hotspur Women v Reading Women (2pm) – Preview:

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking for more of the same when Reading are the visitors to the Hive on Sunday.

Racheal Furness fired home from the penalty spot to earn a single-goal success over Liverpool last weekend as the North Londoners bounced back from their defeat at Chelsea.

Reading will offer another stern test. Indeed, their qualities were recognised by Tottenham’s England under 21’s strike, Rianna Dean.

“Every game matters and it’s still the start of the season, we’re still a new team, we’re still gelling so we shouldn’t look at our cup game this Sunday any differently,” she told www.tottenhamhotspur.co.uk.

“Reading have always been a top team and are always up there in the league. We played them last season in pre-season and we know they have a really good style of play. It’s definitely going to be a challenge for us on Sunday, but I think if we keep doing what we’ve been doing then hopefully we’ll come away with the win.”

Tickets for this match are priced as follows:

Adults: £6.50/£8
Young adults: (18 to 21-year-olds): £4.50/£6
Concessions: (17 and under, over-65s): £3.50/£5
