Ladies to resume title quest

West Ham United Ladies get their quest for promotion from the FA Tesco Women's Premier League Southern Division back under way with the visit of Portsmouth on Sunday.

The Hammers have been in fine form of late, winning through to the Essex County FA Cup final and the quarter-finals of the FA Women's Cup Sponsored by EON.

However, with so many cup ties on their fixture list, Julia Setford's team have played just two league matches since November and conceded top spot to rivals Keynsham Town.

With seven games remaining, West Ham sit one point behind leaders Keynsham and seven points clear of third-place Colchester United.

On Sunday, fourth-place Portsmouth visit Thurrock FC's Ship Lane ground for a 2pm kick-off, while Keynsham host Charlton Athletic.

The following Sunday, 27 March, the Hammers travel to National Division side Barnet for their FA Women's Cup quarter-final fixture.
