PREVIEW Oxford United Women Take On Plymouth Argyle on Sunday

A full guide as Women look to go through in the FA Cup

28 November 2019

Oxford United Women welcome Plymouth Argyle Ladies to Court Place Farm this Sunday (14:00 KO) in the Women’s FA Cup second round.

Team news: The only injury for United is to midfielder Immy Lancaster, with the rest of the squad reporting fit and well.

Manager Liam Gilbert's view:
“Plymouth are a very physical team in a good run of form, but we’re prepared for a battle.

”The FA Cup is a special competition for many fans, and it is no different for us. We can use this game to build upon the result against Watford, as long as we believe in ourselves to get the ball in the back of the net.”

“Against Argyle we’ll try to execute our game plan, but in order to get the result we need to go above and beyond our most recent performance.”

Tickets
With tickets priced at £5 for adults, £2 Concessions and FREE admission for under-16s down at Court Place Farm (OX3 0NQ), it is the perfect opportunity to bring the family down for an afternoon of football.

The five-game form guide:

Oxford: W: 2D: 0L: 3
United have proven themselves to be prolific goalscorers in some of their last few games; an 8-1 win against Norwich and a 32-0 victory versus Launton being the highlights of The U’s recent goalscoring success. However, these impressive results have been offset by recent losses to Keynsham Town, Gillingham, and most recently Watford. The U’s currently sit in 6th place in the Women’s National League.

Plymouth: W: 5D: 0L: 0
Despite being on the road for the vast majority of their games this season the test of travelling far and wide for their fixtures has not troubled The Pilgrims, winning their last five games.

Plymouth’s latest victory came against Wimbledon, a3-1  win easing Argyle into the quarter-finals of the National League Plate. In the league, Plymouth sit in third place as a result of huge wins such as the 5-0 thrashing of Chichester three weeks ago.

Plymouth’s One to Watch: Oxford will have to be wary of the attacking threat that Argyle forward Natasha Knapman will bring for the visitors. In her previous match against Wimbledon, Knapman got on the scoresheet twice, with the second goal resulting from a sensational 30-yard strike.

The Matchday Programme:
Programmes will be available from the turnstiles for just £1. As the perfect place for fans to collect player autographs, the programme contains a squad signing sheet as well as an interview with club captain Lauren Haynes, thoughts from the Manager Liam Gilbert, and the latest news from Oxford United Women.

Match Reports

REPORT: Women Exit FA Cup

Oxford United Women out of FA Cup in dramatic fashion

1 December 2019

An agonising extra time exit saw Oxford United Women bow out of the Women's FA Cup at Court Place Farm this afternoon with  a 4-3 defeat to Plymouth Argyle.

The early proceedings saw an intense midfield battle before Plymouth’s Helen Bleazard broke the deadlock on 14 minutes. A looping free-kick from a central area dipped past U's keeper Sercombe to give the visitors the advantage.

Liam Gilbert’s side responded and Georgia Timms  produced a fine stop from Fannon in the Argyle net, to the encouragement of the home crowd who braved the blisteringly cold conditions.

However Plymouth doubled their advantage on 19 minutes when Natasha Knapman made her way into the box to plant a header past Sercombe at point-blank range.  

United pulled it back to 1-2 on 71 minutes when after a frantic scramble in the Plymouth box the ball fell to Timms who gave Oxford the goal that they deserved. United’s fortunes didn’t end there either, and Gemma Sims guided the ball past a sea of bodies in the Pilgrims’ penalty area to make the score 2-2. 

Gemma Sims looked to have won it for the yellows with a header at the back post during a lively spell of extra time. However, Bleazard’s long range strike for Argyle shortly after levelled the scores at 3-3.

With the game looking to be going to penalties, it was Plymouth who snatched a late winner to send themselves into the third round, to the dismay of an Oxford side who put on a noble performance under the floodlights. 

UNITED: Sercombe, Sims, Haynes, McLachlan, Hines, Timms (Johns 117), Williams (Moore 86), Baker, Searle (Bent 82), Allen, Clifford.

UNUSED SUBS: Watson, Roberts, Kirby.

Attendance: 52
