PREVIEW Cardiff City Ladies vs Oxford United Women

Women head for Wales on Sunday

28 October 2021

Oxford United Women are targeting a win on the road when they travel to Cardiff City in the Women’s National League on Sunday.

The U’s will be looking for a repeat of their cup victory in South Wales in April, when they came up with a 1-0 win despite weeks of inactivity due to the curtailment of the league season. 
United have scored ten goals in their last two matches – they swept aside Swindon in the cup, winning 5-0, followed up by a 5-1-win last weekend against London Bees. 

Rachel Panting scored two of the goals in that game and told us:

“It is a tough league, but we go into every single game wanting to get those three points and climb the table. Cardiff have been doing alright this season.

“We have built a fortress at home and we need to start playing like that in away games now. We have come away from away matches disappointed at not winning and we need to change that.”

Cardiff sit just one place behind Liam Gilbert’s side in the table having played a game more and are unbeaten in their last four matches.

The challenge for United is to take their impressive form at Court Place Farm with them on the road.

Match Reports

REPORT Cardiff City Ladies 0 Oxford United Women 3

Women win in Wales

31 October 2021

Three second-half goals ensured that Oxford United Women continued their good form in the National League with a 3-0 win on the road at Cardiff Ladies this afternoon.

After a goalless first period, two goals from Daisy McLachlan and one for Beth Lumsden ensured United got the victory their performance deserved.

United started well and created their first chance when Carly Johns set up Rachel Panting but she was unable to finish. Panting had another chance to open the scoring just before half-time but was denied by a good save by the Cardiff keeper when through one-on-one.

United did take the lead on the hour mark when Riva Casley kept a corner alive and McLachlan pounced on the loose ball and finished.

It was two ten minutes from time when Lumsden finished coolly when sent through and just had the keeper to beat.

McLachlan helped herself to a second in the dying minutes, United’s third, when she ran from midfield and slotted home.

An excellent performance from Liam Gilbert’s side who will turn their focus back to cup action next week when they welcome Bridgwater in the National League Cup.

OUWFC: Kite, MacKenzie (Wallace 84), Casley, Beaver, Alexander, Haynes, Baker (Will 70), Lumsden, Johns(King 63) , Panting (Stevens 78), McLachlan.
