Women’s Super League: Vicky Jepson looking to boost Tottenham’s record ahead of Arsenal derby

Caretaker Ottenham boss Vicky Jepson is looking to strengthen her case to take up the job on a permanent basis as host of her side Arsenal in the North London derby on Saturday.

The former Liverpool boss was made temporarily in charge earlier this month after Rehanne Skinner was sacked following a dismal run of nine successive defeats in the Women’s Super League.

Jepson had an immediate impact, snapping that streak with a vital 1-0 win over Leicester last weekend to lift Spurs to within four points of the Foxes, who hold the only automatic relegation spot.

Spurs welcome an Arsenal side to Brisbane Road after a controversial 1-0 defeat at Bayern Munich in midweek in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.

Gunners boss Jonas Eidevall was furious with the lack of goal-line technology at the Allianz Arena, as well as the performance of VAR officials after his side saw two penalty appeals dismissed, but knows his team must refocus quickly to have a chance of closing a five-point gap with leaders Chelsea.
