Melissa Phillips was pleased with her side's resolve in the 2-2 draw against Spurs.

Albion gained another key point in the WSL following a four-goal thriller at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday. 

Elisabeth Terland netted her fourth goal in three games with just ten minutes on the clock, but Beth England was quick to react by finding the equaliser just two minutes later.

Geummin Lee helped Melissa Phillips's side take the lead once more after firing an effort from outside the ox in the second 45, but England was on hand to close the deficit once more.

WSL Highlights: Spurs 2 Albion 2

Head coach Phillips said, "We were clearly the better side in the first half and even in the second half we came out to put our foot on it and get that second goal. Obviously we're disappointed to see it go 2-2 but there are so many positive signs about the second half and how we've continued to build.

"Even after it went to 2-2 we had to weather a few opportunities on our goal and still come back to create a few more chances. It's promising to see and we have to continue to build but at the end of the day it's a point on the board." 

"It's been fairly consistent recently for us to get that early goal, that hunger and desire is certainly there and now it's just about how we shift that mentality and build a bit more detail on the ball. We just have to be a bit more difficult to break down.

"If you look at the last four games, everyone who is playing in our front five is scoring. They're producing a lot of attacking qualities, we just have to remain solid behind the ball to make sure that we're not giving any chances.

Geummin Lee is mobbed after putting Albion in front.

"The way that we continued to play, even after conceding that second goal was good. We still created opportunities and maintained true to our identity."
