United fans can finally watch some live football and support their club this Sunday (14:00 KO), with Court Place Farm (OX3 0NQ) hosting Oxford United Women vs Crawley Wasps in the Women’s National League.
With no new injury concerns, Manager Liam Gilbert said:
“It will be nice to be back at home and it’ll be great to see as many Oxford fans as we can there. Obviously, we can’t go to see the men’s games at the minute and if last night’s game is anything to go by then we can put on a show as well.
“We know what Crawley are like and we will be ready for them.”
It’s FREE admission this Sunday for fans who have purchased a season ticket or a Crewe iFollow match pass.

United put in a fine away display on Wednesday, beating MK Dons 3-1 at Stadium MK. An early penalty from Emily Allen set the tone for the rest of the contest, with the U's having the lion’s share of possession under the lights. Two second half goals from Molly Peters in Milton Keynes built upon last Sunday’s match away at Watford, where the Oxford striker opened her account for the season that day.
As for this weekend’s opponents, Crawley travelled to Gillingham on Tuesday and picked up the away win 2-1. Goals from Naomi Cole and Sarah Wignall sealed the deal for the Wasps, who bounced back from a narrow 1-0 defeat to MK Dons last weekend.
Both United and Crawley sit on 6 points so far for the season, so Sunday’s game is expected to be a competitive affair.
Crawley’s One to Watch: Immy Lancaster
Lancaster will be visiting Court Place Farm for the first time since leaving The U’s over the summer, opting to link up with Dave Cole’s Crawley Wasps at the beginning of September. During her time with United, the popular midfielder won the Oxfordshire County Cup and her last appearance for Oxford came in the same competition in a 12-0 win over Oxford City.
