After an impressive 3-0 win over Fulham in the Women’s FA Cup last weekend Oxford United Women return to home action in the National league when take on Plymouth Argyle at home this Sunday at 2pm.
Unbeaten in their last four, the U’s will be aiming to continue their good league form against a Plymouth side who have had a slow start to the season.
Daisy Ackerman had a fantastic performance against Fulham, providing an assist for top goalscorer Beth Lumsden as well as scoring a goal for herself.
Ackerman told us “It was great to get my first goal for Oxford. The first half we were under a lot of pressure but came out fighting in the second half and I was really happy to contribute to the team making it into the next round. Coming on loan from Arsenal the girls have been great to welcome me into the squad and I think this has helped my confidence on the pitch playing with them, as we have each other’s backs.”
The U’s are in great form as coach Kath Faulkner told us
“we are working hard in training to aim to keep this run going, we have no intention of slowing down. It is great we are getting goals from all of the girls, it really shows our strength in the squad, we have many clinical players that can cause a problem for any opponent.”
“I think the determination Fulham showed in the first half of the game knocked us off our stride and we needed time to get comfortable within the game but we showed our quality and heart in the second which ultimately created more chances and led to three great goals.
"We need to stick to the plan and play the game our way against Plymouth and we should give them a really tough game.”
The game at Court Place Farm kicks off at 2pm: come along and enjoy LIVE football on a Sunday afternoon.
