Women Visit Brighton Tonight

Oxford United Women play Brighton this evening

22 February 2018

Oxford United Women travel to the south coast for a WSL2 fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion tonight.

The Yellows are coming off of a tough fought 2-1 loss to Tottenham and will be looking to get back to the same level of potency that saw them beat Aston Villa 3-1 in the last home game.

Brighton are heading into the game having beaten London Bees 3-1 in their previous fixture.

Oxford will have to be wary of former U's player Ini Umotong. The striker has scored six goals in 12 games, making her The Seagulls top scorer, with three more than Danielle Buet.

For United, Kayleigh Hines remains top scorer with five goals in 13 games, two more than striker Chloe Chivers.

The two teams previously met on 29th October last year and played out a thrilling 2-2 draw at Court Place Farm. The only other fixture in WSL2 between the sides was in the 2017 Spring Series, when they also cancelled each other out with a draw.

With their next fixture over a month after the Brighton game, at home to Millwall Lionesses on Sunday 25th March, Oxford will be looking for something positive as they head into the break.
