After a 1-1 draw against Millwall Lionesses, Villa Ladies are aiming for an away win at Oxford United Women.

Where Aston Villa stand:

So far so good in the Spring Series. With a total of 4 points, Villa Ladies are 3rd in the WSL2. After only two games played, the Claret and Blues have scored four times. In their first match against Watford Ladies, the goals were scored by Natasha Baptiste, Bethan Merrick and Jade Richards. Against Millwall Lionesses, the fourth one belongs to Elisha N’Dow, who managed to approach the opponent’s goal the very first minute of the game and guaranteed a draw.

What to know about Oxford United Women:

Positioned at 8th on the ten-team league table, Oxford haven’t had the chance to celebrate any winning so far. With two loses and one draw, the team only have one point. After three games played, top scorers are Ini-Abasi Umotong, who scored twice, and Evie Gane who’s responsible for one. Alas, three goals are not quite enough as they could not withstand six fortunate attacks of other teams in previous matches.

Match prediction and time:

The third game for Villa Ladies should be a success, although it is a first match for them this season away from home. But what are the odds that Claret and Blues won’t be able to handle a different shade of green? The teams play tomorrow, 12th March, 2 P.M., at Abingdon United FC.
