London Colney is paradox. Too distant to be a North London suburb. Its location – a short traffic jam from the thundering M25 – makes it too busy to be genuinely quiet. Yet it is situated in the heart of the placid Hertfordshire countryside.

Eric Dier seemed to have something to get off his chest when he emerged to reflect on Sunday’s draw at the Emirates, having noticed a prevailing sense of negativity in the build-up to the derby.

Club captain Amrit Derry says Haringey’s new head coach Craig Sweetlove is already getting results after the Rhinos’ latest victory gave them a four-way share of the lead at the top of the Herts/Middlesex Division Two table.

Centre-back Renee Hector says Spurs Ladies’ defenders are just as committed to improving the team’s goal difference as the Lilywhites’ free-scoring attacking players after Sunday’s 4-0 league win over C&K Basildon.
