Will the Hammers end on a high?
West Ham are hoping to end the season with a win against their London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur.
Paul Konchesky’s side went on a 10 game winless run, until they played Leicester City last weekend, where they won 2-1.
They are currently sat 8th in the league, which is 2 positions lower than where they finished last year. Even with their semi-final finish in the league cup, West Ham’s season hasn’t gone as well as they would have liked.
At the start of the season even when they were winning games, they were leaking goals for fun, which never really stopped throughout the whole campaign. Especially when there were long term injuries to England defender Lucy Parker and French defender Hawa Cissoko.
Which became a major issue when they went on a goal draught. Throughout the season so far they have conceded 42 goals in 21 games.
Whilst only scoring 21.
Back in March West Ham Women gained 3 new directors, these include, West Ham’s Co Chairman- Karen Brady, Tara Warren and Nicola Keye. When they joined they spoke a lot about investment to try and push West Ham onto the next level.
So even with a lower finish this season that they would have aimed for, the Hammers are in a good position looking into the future.
For Spurs, they will come into this game with revenge due to their 2-0 loss at home to West Ham just before Christmas. Since then they have been battling relegation but due to their 4-1 win against Reading at White Hart Lane, their WSL status is confirmed for another year.
A player Konchesky’s side will need to look at carefully is Bethany England. So far in the
campaign she has scored 11 out of their 29 goals for Spurs, whilst only joining them in January.
The Hammers will be playing Tottenham Hotspur at home this Saturday at the Chigwell Construction Stadium, hoping to end the season on a high.
