West Ham United Ladies came from behind to secure a point from their London derby against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

On the same day that the men travelled to Spurs, the ladies hosted the north Londoners at Ship Lane and recorded a positive result.

The visitors dominated the opening period, with their pace down the flanks causing West Ham difficulties.

Influential midfielder Stacey Little suffered an ankle injury before the break, and Spurs increased the pain by moving into the lead thanks to Andra Marcoci, who fired home low to keeper Toni-Anne Wayne's right.

The Hammers were much improved after half time and levelled just two minutes after the restart through Lindsey Morgan.

Morgan's glancing header from a Jade Skillen corner found the far corner and gave West Ham the platform from which to search for a winner.

Morgan went close to a second when hitting the bar, and Cherrelle Albert also struck the woodwork, but the points were destined to be shared.

West Ham United: Wayne, King, Skillen, Reed, West, Little (Blanchflower 35), Bowers (Albert 65), Masters, Crinean, Merritt (Lipley-Hinton 86), Morgan
