OXFORD United Women are into the second round of the FA Cup after a convincing 3-0 win at Fulham.

The home side are two divisions below United, in the London and South East Regional Women’s Football League, and came into the game on a seven-match unbeaten run.

However, goals from Sarah King, Beth Lumsden and Daisy Ackerman avoided an upset in the cup and sealed progress into the next round for United.

Fulham started brightly but the first chance fell for United on 10 minutes.

A brilliantly weighted pass from Sophie Baker fell into the path of Lumsden, who crossed for Daisy McLachlan, but the forward was off target with her shot.

Merrick Will then hit one over on 15 minutes, while Oana Negrea shot wide for Fulham after a great pass to her from Ellie Olds.

Baker then shot wide of the target after a low Lumsden cross, with 43 minutes on the clock.

Moments later though, United did take the lead.

A Lumsden cross was dummied by Baker, allowing King to apply the finish.

Fulham started the second half brightly but United again ultimately took control.

Kate Foster found space on the left for the hosts but saw her shot saved, before Helen Ogle hit the bar.

On 56 minutes, a long ball forward was collected by Lumsden, who ran towards goal but fired over.

United did double their lead though on 74 minutes.

McLachlan squared the ball for Lumsden on the edge of the area and she picked her spot to fire the ball into the back of the net.

Progress to the second round was secured in stoppage time though.

Hannah Mackenzie sent in a fizzing cross past Edie Kelly in the Fulham goal, and onto the boot of Ackerman, on as a substitute, who applied the finishing touch.
