Andy Cook looks ahead to Sunday's game at Northcourt Road
Oxford United Women are at home against against Aston Villa Ladies this Sunday.
Striker Ini Umotong continued her strong start to the Spring Series with her second goal in three games against the London bees and Team Manager Andy Cook takes charge of his first home game in Oxford.
“I’m excited for the game “ he said “It will be the same as every game, home or away. We are looking to win. Sometimes people get too engrossed in what has happened previously, or in focusing on the end result. I've found that these cause a distraction, and cloud people’s judgement, so if we all work tirelessly and to our potential then we will get what we deserve.”
“We will score goals – against London we had six good opportunities, so we do create chances. If we remain relaxed and calm then we will score.”
New signing Taomé Oliver made her debut for Oxford against London Bees and stand by for her home debut
“What a great person, and player, Taomé is” Andy said. “It’s brilliant that Oxford United can sign a player of her ability – she’ll excite the watching fans. We are always looking around, doing the necessary scouting. We have a few names that we are monitoring but we need to make sure they are a correct fit for the club.”
