Spurs Women’s interim manager, Vicky Jepson, is confident of steering the team away from relegation in the Women’s Super League. Despite suffering a 5-1 defeat to their fierce rivals Arsenal, Jepson remains optimistic ahead of their upcoming game against Everton.
Jepson replaced the sacked Rehanne Skinner as the assistant manager to lead the team to safety. She believes that their victory over Leicester City has significantly boosted their hopes for survival. However, Jepson is uncertain about her future with the team.
Jepson says, “We win and lose together, we concede together, we score together, it is no ones fault. We’ll review this and make sure these next six games we put the lessons from the second half right. They deserve the world and we’ll give them everything.”
Tottenham striker Bethany England scored her sixth goal since joining the club from Chelsea. Her consistent performance led to suggestions that she could return to Sarina Wiegman’s England squad. Jepson affirms, “If she continues scoring goals, there’s no reason why she shouldn’t be getting called up for England.”
Arsenal’s derby win saw Jodie Taylor make her second debut, returning to football after a stint in LA. Even at 36, the experienced striker showed her fighting spirit and determination to play the beautiful game as long as she could.
