Oxford United Women are back in Women’s FA Cup action this Sunday when they travel to Ashford Town (2pm)
The U’s come in to the game after a 3-0 win against Plymouth Argyle that kept the pressure up on the leaders in the National League but they now take a break to continue their cup adventure.
“We went into the game knowing what to do from the last time we played them and executed it well” said Player Of The Match Daisy McLachlan, “If we keep playing how we have been and keep this momentum I don’t see why we shouldn’t be considered as serious contenders to win this league.
“We look forward to the next game in the FA Cup, it is so important for us that we do well in both competitions so we will definitely spend every second we can preparing and planning for that and to hopefully continue this good run.”
Ashford Town are unbeaten in the 2021/22 season with a record of 12-1-0 and a goal difference of +67 and will pose a real threat to the U’s; striker, Ashley Cheatley has scored or assisted in 35 goals in her last 12 games
However Liam Gilbert’s side are in tremendous form themselves and worked hard to beat Fulham, who are in Ashford’s league, 3-0 in the last round.
