Report: Bristol City Women 4-1 Oxford United Women

Two first-half braces helped Bristol City Women to an empathic 4-1 win over Oxford United at Stoke Gifford Stadium in their first game in just over a month.

Chelsea loanee Millie Farrow gave the hosts a deserved opener, but Oxford's Ini Umotong restored parity with a close range header after 25 minutes.

City reclaimed the lead through debutant Claire Emslie and the Scotland international furthered the Vixens’ lead before Farrow completed the rout just before half-time.

Head coach Willie Kirk stated his intent to have a strong second-half of the season and his side certainly started as they mean to go on.

City enjoyed plenty of possession in the opening exchanges and got their just rewards in the 18th minute.

Loren Dykes received the ball on the right and delivered a dangerous cross into the box for Farrow to tap home.

The Vixens threatened to run away with the contest, but were pegged back against the run of play when midfielder Holly Pickett’s deft lob rebounded off the post to a lurking Umotong who proceeded to nod the visitors level.

The score remained at 1-1 for just three minutes as full-back Megan Alexander’s pull back was finished with aplomb by Emslie.

The 22-year-old signed from Florida Atlantic University and continued her telling contribution by doubling her tally with a curling shot which bounced past the despairing dive of Hannah Cox into the far corner.

Almost straight from the restart, City added their fourth. Farrow raced away from the Oxford backline and coolly slotted past Cox to ensure a three-goal advantage at the break.

A quieter second period followed as Umotong was frustrated twice by keeper Caitlin Leach and City saw out a comfortable victory.
