OXFORD United cannot wait to play their first game at Court Place Farm in 2020, says manager Liam Gilbert.

The U’s host Cardiff City Ladies in FA Women’s National League Southern Premier tomorrow (2pm), with their last match the 6-1 away thrashing of Keynsham Town on January 12.

It has been a frustrating wait for United, but Gilbert has a fully-fit squad to pick from as he looks to avenge December’s 1-0 defeat to tomorrow’s opponents.

The hosts are four points behind third-placed Cardiff with a game in hand and the U’s boss revealed his side are desperate to close the gap.

He said: “The girls have been working hard in training, and they’re just raring to go.

“They’ve been waiting for this game to carry on that momentum we gained from a very confident performance against Keynsham.

“There’s a cliché that goals are the only currency in football and last time out against Cardiff it was a game which on a different day we could’ve won.

“But Cardiff had a game plan, they stuck to it, and because of that they got the win and we didn’t.”

Tomorrow’s game represents an excellent chance for United to build some momentum at a crucial point of the season.

After the visit of Cardiff, United are scheduled to play three sides who are below them in the table.

Home fixtures against MK Dons and Portsmouth sandwich a trip to Kent to face Gillingham.

While the U’s have faced a long gap between matches, their opponents are playing for the third weekend in succession.

The visitors lost 2-0 at table-toppers Crawley Wasps a fortnight ago, before triumphing by the same scoreline at Keynsham.

United’s own display against the Somerset side is still fresh in the memory and Gilbert is hoping to take that performance into the clash tomorrow.

He said: “Some of the football in the Keynsham game demonstrated that we play some unbelievable football at times.

“The way we move the ball, the things we look to do and how we try to play shows that if we stick to what we do best with our philosophy and style of play, I don’t see why we can’t get a result at the weekend.”
