Oxford United Women Head For London Bees

U's look to bounce back as they return to league action

9 February 2022

It’s a big weekend for the U’s with the First Team at home to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday and then Oxford United Women heading for London Bees away on Sunday in their chase for the league title.

The U’s are well within reach of top spot with two games in hand and just five points behind Ipswich, who sit at the top of the FAWNL table. It looks like a three way race with Southampton, who have played three fewer games, only four points behind the U’s.

United are unbeaten at home and are coming off of a six-game winning streak in the league. After their tough loss against Crawley last weekend in the FA National League Cup quarter-final, the U’s will hope to rebound with an away win.

“We know where we can be better, and we know what we’ll work on this week as we build into another tough game,” manager Liam Gilbert told us after the Crawley game. “We aren’t going to get too high when we win, and we aren’t going to get too low when we lose,” he said.

The Bees have won three of their past five league games, but United beat them 5-1 back in late October.

United travel to The Hive Stadium, Barnet on Sunday the 13th with kick off at 2pm.

In the meantime, keep an eye out for interviews with the team on how they’re feeling about the upcoming match and follow the action live on Twitter @OfficialOUWFC.

Women Beat the Bees

Oxford United Women win away at London Bees

14 February 2022

Oxford United Women kept up their amazing run of form with a 2-1 win at London Bees moving them up to within two points of the leaders in the Women’s National League.

Goals from top scorer Beth Lumsden and Daisy McLachlan made it nine wins in a row for the U’s who are hot on the heels of leaders Ipswich in what looks to be a three way race for the title with Southampton also chasing hard

On a blustery afternoon at The Hive United got off to a perfect start when Lumsden drove the ball home to make it 1-0 after just three minutes.

However, the lead lasted just 10 minutes before Dani Puddefoot made it 1-1 after United failed to clear a corner.

United created chances but couldn’t find a way through in the first half but just after the hour winger McLachlan headed home a corner to make it 2-1 and United saw the game out for an excellent win on the road.

“Credit to both teams” Manager Liam Gilbert told us. “It was cold, there was rain, a strong wind and it was really hard work but we got the job done and we are going really well at the minute.We lost in the League Cup last week and we asked for a reaction because we want to win every game, no matter what the conditions. I thought the team showed fantastic character out there today and the attitude was spot on.”

The U’s are on the road again in their next game when they travel to Hounslow on Wednesday (7.45pm)
