Match Preview: Oxford v Pompey Women

Women back in league action

27 January 2022

Pompey Women are back on the road as they take on Oxford United in the FA Women’s National League this afternoon (2pm kick-off).

The Blues saw off Moneyfields to reach the Hampshire Cup final in their last outing, courtesy of goals from Tamsin de Bunsen and Dani Lane.

But their most recent league action ended in a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Plymouth a fortnight ago.

Pompey had fallen behind on eight minutes, only for Jazz Younger to poke him a Tamsin de Bunsen corner to level things up.

However, just soon after, the defender gave away a penalty which was tucked home by Zoe Cunningham.

A week prior to the Pilgrims trip, the Blues had become the first team to take anything from a visit to Ipswich's Goldstar Ground in more than two years, battling from behind to earn a 1-1 draw.

Natasha Thomas headed home in the first half for the Tractor Girls, but her effort was cancelled out by Evie Gane, who smashed in the loose ball from a free-kick.

Oxford have won all eight fixtures at their Court Place Farm base this term, most notably beating league leaders Ipswich before Christmas.

The last clash between the teams took place at Westleigh Park back in August, with Shannon Albuery netting following a neat one-two with Jade Bradley to cancel out Carly John's opener.

United sit second in the National League standings and have only been beaten twice so far.

The game take place at Oxford City’s Court Place Farm, with tickets available to buy at the turnstiles.

They are priced £5 for adults and £3 for concessions, with free entry for under-16s.

Pompey return to Westleigh Park next Sunday (February 6) when they host AFC Wimbledon in the quarter-finals of the National League Plate (2pm kick-offf). Tickets are available to purchase online here.
