The Charlton women’s team will be looking to sign off from Sporting Club Thamesmead in style when they host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday (2pm) in their final home match of the season.

Currently unbeaten in all competitions so far this season, Spurs will represent the women’s team’s stiffest test so far this term and captain Kim Dixson says her side now face nine ‘cup finals’ as they look to finish strongly and challenge for the FA Women’s Premier League  (FAWPL) South title.

Charlton sit top of the FAWPL South at the moment, but are just one point ahead of chasing trio Spurs, Cardiff City and Coventry United – with those three having games in hand.

Dixson said: “Every game is big for us from now until the end of the season, whoever it is against – it’s nine cup finals.

“Sunday is our last home game of the season so we want to finish off at Thamesmead on a high so everyone will be up for it. We know we will be prepared and training has been really good in the lead up.

“We have everything to play for now and the pressure is off us, so will can just go and play how we can and work for each other.”

The Addicks are flying in 2017, with seven wins from eight matches so far and no goals conceded in the league. That sole defeat came in unfortunate circumstances against FA Women’s Super League side Sheffield FC in the SSE Women’s FA Cup.

A 4-3 extra time victory against FAWPL Northern Division leaders Blackburn Rovers saw them surge into the FAWPL Cup final, where they will, once again, face Spurs. In addition, the pair still have to lock horns in the reverse league fixture, as well as the Ryman and Capital cup finals.

Dixson was delighted with the nature of the win against Blackburn and is looking forward to their treble of showpieces, despite being focused on the league campaign for the time being.

“Last weekend [against Blackburn] was a good team performance, even though we did it the hard way,” she added. “We can take confidence from that and take that into this weekend.

“Not all the games [against Tottenham] will be the same, but we know they will all be tough games. We have to be – and we will be – ready for them.”
