PREVIEW Ipswich Town Women v Oxford United Women

U's travel to Ipswich on Sunday

21 April 2022

Oxford United Women face three tough away games to end their National League season, starting at Ipswich Town on Sunday.

Two wins in the last four games has seen the U’s lose ground on the leaders with Southampton winning their games in hand to take top spot from long time leaders Ipswich and clinch the title with a 1-0 win over Portsmouth last night.

“We have given it absolutely everything all season” Manager Liam Gilbert told us “and we will do that again on Sunday and then in our last two games: that’s the only way we know to do things.

“Credit to Southampton who have been relentless all season and shown what a good team they are. It takes a bit of character to win matches you have in hand on other teams, especially when the pressure is on.

“ Ipswich will be hurt at losing top spot and that is going to make for a very good game on Sunday: we beat them earlier in the season as well as drawing with Southampton so we are absolutely determined to show once again that we can compete at the top of this league.

“We have had a weekend with no game so we are fresh for these last three matches and we will travel up to Ipswich really looking forward to the game.”

Will goal sees United win away at Ipswich

24 April 2022

Oxford United Women enjoyed an excellent win in the Women’s National League South at Ipswich this afternoon.

A late goal from Merrick Will was enough to give the U’s a 1-0 win in a terrific game between two excellent sides.

The win moves the U’s up to just two points behind second-placed Ipswich, with a game in hand and boss Liam Gilbert told us:

“I am so proud of this group of players. To stick together through a really tough season, to come away to a place like this and to take all three points tells you everything you need to know about us.

“We battled hard from the very first minute and I couldn't have asked for anything more from them. We worked on a few things in training and the way they executed that game plan was fantastic. I thought we dominated the first half and although Rose Kite had to make one or two saves we were also dangerous after the break and I thought we deserved the win.

“Now we have two games left to play, both away, with the champions Southampton our next match so we will enjoy this win, get back home and start preparing for the next match.”
