Oxford City Ladies FC are yet to be beaten in 4 games as they enter the final stretch of the season. Sitting 3 points behind league leaders with one game in hand, this Sunday could define the title chances for both teams.
After seeing Winchester City Flyers off 5-2 last Sunday, the team go into the game with every confidence of getting a result. Player, Leah McConnell, took us through the hard fought win: “The Winchester game started off very well and we felt in control. We then gave away a lot of possession leading to their 2 goals. Our mentality and energy picked up in the second half and we created more chances as a result. There were some fantastic play from individuals and our character as a team came through, giving us a very nice win and 5 goals!”
Last Sunday’s win was extra special for McConnell as it marked her return from a long-term injury. Leah told us “It was fantastic to be back and get a full game under my belt and play with my team again. Very pleased to get on the scoresheet and be involved in a very exciting game. Just need to build my fitness and keep improving my touch. Overall, I am very excited for the games ahead and I am very happy to be playing with my teammates. It’s something I have missed so much.”
