Oxford United Women travel to face Hounslow WFC on Wednesday evening looking to bounce back from defeat last time out, as they enter their final four games of the season.
Liam Gilbert’s side currently sit third in the FA WNL Southern Premier Division, six points behind leaders Southampton, who do have a game in hand on the Yellows. Meanwhile, Hounslow have endured a difficult season and are yet to pick up a single point from their 22 matches.
This encounter was originally set to take place on Wednesday 16th February but it was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. In the reverse fixture, the U’s secured an emphatic 7-0 victory at Court Place Farm, thanks to goals from Emily Wallace and a hat-trick each for Carly Johns and Beth Lumsden.
Manager Gilbert is looking for a response from his players after a 1-0 defeat against Bridgwater on Sunday. “Wednesday presents a brilliant opportunity to get back to winning ways before two massive games against Ipswich and Southampton.”
He added: “We need to approach the game in a professional manner and not be complacent because of our previous win over Hounslow. They will want to show that they have improved since that first game and it will be difficult I'm sure".
The game kicks off 7:45pm on Wednesday 13th April at Hanworth Villa FC, Park Road, Hanworth, TW13 6PN.
