Women's Sport: Meadow Park a sell out for North London derby

Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal - Barclays FA Women's Super League

Sunday will see the second Women's Super League North London derby of the season when Arsenal welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Meadow Park - the match has been announced as a sell-out.

Meadow Park is the home of Boreham Wood - a men's team who play in the National League - the fifth tier of football. 

The reverse fixture was played at Tottenham men's new stadium which saw a record 38.262 attend a WSL game in November - breaking the previous record of 31,213 when Manchester City Women faced Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

The Gunners were 2-0 winners on that day, with goals from Scotland international Kim Little and Netherlands forward Vivianne Miedema. The club will be hoping to do the double over their rivals at their home ground.

Joe Montemurro's side, who were crown champions last season, currently sit third in the WSL table with 15 points - level with Manchester City - while Spurs are sixth with nine points and have a game in hand.

Arsenal comes into the game off the back of a 2-1 defeat to the Citizens. Visitors Tottenham had their game last weekend postponed at home to bottom-club Bristol City due to a waterlogged pitch.

With the game now confirmed a sell-out, it will see Meadow Park's previous attendance record of 4,030 - when Boreham Wood played Arsenal men in a friendly - surpassed.

This will be the first competitive North London derby played at Meadow Park, with the only previous clash at the ground being a pre-season friendly - which the Gunners ran out 6-0 winners.
