OXFORD United will finally kick off their league season tomorrow.

After two postponed games, the U’s will host Chichester City at Court Place Farm in their opening FA Women’s National League fixture (2pm).

The visitors are without a win this season after 3-0 losses to both Milton Keynes Dons and Yeovil.

United’s only match so far saw them lose 1-0 to Crawley Town in the FA Women’s National League Cup, but manager Liam Gilbert is relishing their league campaign getting under way.

“It has been slightly frustrating with the unfortunate postponed fixtures, but the girls have been working hard off the pitch and are excited to get going on Sunday,” he said.

“It’s always nice to kick off the league games with a home match so we are expecting Sunday to be a great occasion.”

Club captain Lauren Haynes is backing United to bounce back from their cup defeat and cut out their errors.

“There were so many positives out there,” he said.

“If you look where we are now compared to last season, we’re going in the right direction.

“Our main aim is to concentrate on the league so Sunday will be a chance to put our mistakes right.”

She added: “We’ve brought players in who are buying into the vision of the club and that in itself does wonders.

“We’ve got the backing, the support, the environment is right and there’s only going to be good things for this football club in the future.”

Admission tomorrow is £5, with concessions and United season ticket holders £2. Under 16s go for free.
