Match preview for Hounslow Women v Oxford United Women

U's look to build on Wasps win this

8 October 2020

Oxford United Women look to keep up the winning momentum with a trip to Hounslow this Sunday (2pm KO).

TEAM NEWS
Fresh from an impressive 3-1 victory against Crawley in front of home support last weekend, Manager Liam Gilbert said:

“We’ll prepare the same as usual; we have watched back our footage from the weekend and identified the areas where we can be a little bit sharper and we will put that into practice throughout this week.

“It’s been a completely different week compared to last week where we were really keen on watching the girls’ workload, whereas this week we’ve been able to get back to our usual Tuesday-Thursday training sessions.”

With no new injuries to report, plus the return of influential midfielders Kayleigh Hines and Daisy McLachlan in last weekend’s contest against Crawley, United will travel to Hounslow in a strong position for the challenge at hand this weekend.

TICKETS
Supporters who are looking to make the trip to Hounslow’s Tithe Farm Sports & Social Club (HA2 0XH) this weekend can purchase tickets online HERE. Alternatively, contactless card payments can be made on the gate, with adult’s tickets priced at £3 while U16s can get in for free.

FORM GUIDE
The story of the season so far has been very different for the two sides who’ll lock horns this weekend, United currently sitting in second place in the Women’s National League table as a result of wins against Gillingham, MK Dons and most recently Crawley Wasps last weekend. However, Hounslow have endured different fortunes, with the West London club currently sitting in 12th place and winless in four league games – Hounslow’s most recent fixture ended in a 4-0 loss away at MK Dons.

Hounslow’s One to Watch: Danielle Maloney
This weekend’s opponent’s ‘One to Watch’ is summer signing Danielle Maloney, formerly of Watford Women. Having linked up with her new club at the start of last month, Maloney has since captained the Hounslow side this season – the defender having previous experience of captaining Watford’s Under-23s also.

Women go top of the league

12 October 2020

Oxford United Women struck seven past Hounslow yesterday to send The U’s top of the Women’s National League.

 Two goals apiece from Taome Oliver and Emily Allen plus strikes from Carly Johns, Kayleigh Hines and Abbie Bensted sealed the 7-0 away victory.

United looked to continue last weekend’s good form and took an early lead when strong hold-up play before a clever turn allowed Molly Peters to square the ball to Oliver, who was presented with a tap in to give United the early advantage in West London.

There was no let-up for Hounslow with Hines spearheading United’s attack and going down in the box for a penalty. However, the home side would have breathed a sigh of relief when Allen was unable to convert the spot-kick.

On 20 minutes United cranked up the pressure once again and Oliver’s volley sailed over the bar minutes before Johns doubled the lead. Some good build-up play from United resulted in Peters being in a prime position to square the ball across to Johns who struck The U’s' second.

Liam Gilbert’s side struck close to each side of half time also, Oliver scoring her second of the day from Johns’ back-post cross shortly before the interval before Allen got United off to a fantastic start after the break with her sweet strike to put The U’s four goals to the good.

Hines, making her first start of the season after returning from injury, marked the occasion with a goal. Her well-placed free kick on 57 minutes led the way to the star midfielder earning the Player of the Match award and putting her side firmly in the driving seat.

Allen scored her second of the day soon afterwards with her half-volley being lifted over the goalkeeper’s reach before Bensted came off the bench to score her first goal for the club with a follow-up header in the final minutes.

Elsewhere, Crawley’s victory against Watford means that United go top of the Women’s National League as they return to Court Place Farm next weekend to face Cardiff.

United:
Kite, Wallace, Sims, Haynes, Hines, Oliver (Bensted), Baker (McLachlan), Johns, Allen, Mackenzie, Peters (Brown).Unused subs: Sercombe, Beaver.
