Oxford United Women look to continue their excellent start to the season in the Women’s National League South when they travel to Crawley Wasps Ladies on Sunday.
A win at home to Bridgwater last weekend saw the U’s continue to snap at the heels of the leaders but they will have their work cut out against a Crawley side who have also won four of their six league games so far
“It should be a decent game” Manager Liam Gilbert told us. “Like ourselves, Crawley are all about developing players and have a realy good youth set up and they beat London Bees 5-1 the other week so we know they are dangerous, especially at home.
“But we have been playing well ourselves and feel we are getting stronger all the time. Rachel Panting got minutes from the bench last time and Merrick Will is stepping up her recovery after a knee problem and they are two very experienced players who we know will really help us build from what has been a pretty encouraging first few games.”
The game is at the New Defence Ground in Horley and kicks off at 2pm. Admission is £6 adults, £2 for under 16s and concessions
