Oxford United Women face Keynsham at Court Place Farm on Sunday in the FA Women’s National League (2pm).

United Women come into the game on the back of an excellent 8-1 victory over Norwich City in the FAWNL Plate and will be looking to get back to winning ways in the league.

Game information
The match is played at Court Place Farm on Sunday (OX3 0NQ) so get behind the girls as they look to build momentum in the league. Kick-off is at 2pm.

Ahead of the game we caught up with forward Emily Allen who told us:

“We know it will be a tough game, I think they have a few players who have played in higher leagues before so we know it won’t be easy as it is with every team in this league so hopefully we’ll kick on and continue scoring in the way we did last week.

“It’s really important now we have that win behind us and we want to get a bit of momentum going in the league now. We have a lot of home games coming up so hopefully we’ll take that into those games.”

REPORT: United Women Lose Against Keynsham Town

Women's side fall to narrow defeat

10 November 2019

Despite creating plenty of opportunities, Oxford United Women fell to a 1-0 defeat against Keynsham Town at Court Place Farm this afternoon.

Looking for momentum following a terrific 8-1 victory over Norwich City at Court Place Farm last week, United started the game on the front foot. Allen had the game’s first opportunity four minutes in as she received the ball in the area. With her back to goal she did well to get a shot away but couldn’t steer her effort on target. The U’s had a goal ruled out in the opening ten minutes for offside as they looked for the opener.

Carly Johns found a lot of space on the right wing throughout the opening exchanges and she did well to beat her marker and cross towards Daisy McLachlan, who was arriving at the back post, but a good defensive header meant the U’s had to bide their time in the first half.

Kayleigh Hines tried her luck on two occasions from distance: the first comfortably gathered by the Keynsham goalkeeper before the second whistled past the post as United Women looked to break the deadlock. Against the run of play however, it was Keynsham who were to take an early lead against the run of play. Paris Sercombe parried the visitors’ first effort away but United weren’t quick enough to deal with the second attempt and a Keynsham forward was allowed space to pick out the bottom corner to put Keynsham ahead.

United Women responded well though and continued pressing their opponents despite the setback. Johns went close with a volleyed attempt before Williams worked the chance of the half as she went through on goal but couldn’t keep her strike down.

A goal down at the break, the U’s had work to do. A slight change of shape as striker Georgia Timms came on for Johns at the interval almost paid off immediately after the restart. McLachlan drifted in from the right forcing the goalkeeper into a good stop before Williams drilled one towards goal from the rebound only to see her effort blocked on the line.

Sustained pressure from the U’s followed as they kept Keynsham pegged back in their own half for large spells but caught on the break Sercombe was called into action again saving well to her right to keep the U’s hopes alive.

On 70 minutes, a terrific team move ending with Sophie Baker putting the ball into the back of the net was ruled out for offside again as the all-important equaliser continued to avoid Liam Gilbert’s side.

United Women threw everything they could as the side searched for an equaliser and Emily Allen almost got the U's level in the 90th minute, forcing a terrific save from the Keynsham goalkeeper who had a fantastic afternoon for the visitors but United didn't get the breakthrough they would feel they deserved as Keynsham took all three points.

United Women next face Launton at home in the County Cup.

UNITED: Sercombe, Clifford, Lancaster, Sims, Searle (Beaver), Hines, Baker (Moore), Allen, Johns (Timms), Williams, McLachlan
