Report: Bristol Academy 3-2 Oxford United

Bristol Academy moved one step closer to the FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup Knockout stages with a 3-2 win over Oxford United.

Bristol started the game sharper than their opposition, testing visiting goalkeeper Demi Lambourne in the early stages with efforts from both Christie Murray and Jade Boho-Sayo forcing her into action during the first ten minutes.

But it was WSL 2 side Oxford who took the lead when Lauren Allison picked up the ball from a wayward shot in midfield, turned Katie Jones in the Bristol defence and fired past Mary Earps to give her side the lead.

The home side levelled ten minutes later though from a flowing counter attacking move. Caroline Weir's long ball found Boho-Sayo who beat Lambourne by finishing low into the net.

Provider Weir turned scorer in the 50th minute when she looped a ball over the visiting stopper from inside the area to put the top-flight side in control of the encounter early in the second half.

Bristol piled on the pressure late on as a third strike hit the net, Boho-Sayo struck from the penalty spot. Oxford's Allison then pulled one back for the visitors, converting from a cross but the home side remained in control and eventually held on for the win.

Bristol Academy: (4-1-3-2) Mary Earps, Katie Jones, Marije Brummel, Hayley Ladd (Evdokia Popadinova 63), Lauren Townsend (Frankie Brown 63), Caroline Weir, Sophie Ingle, Emma Tustin, Nadia Lawrence (Tatiana Pinto 63), Jade Boho-Sayo, Christie Murray.
