Report: Oxford United Ladies 0-5 Bristol City Women

Bristol City Women can finally celebrate promotion after a convincing victory in final game of the season.

The Vixens scored five goals but it wasn't enough to take the league title and finish in second place​. 

A brace apiece from Claire Emslie and Millie Farrow plus an own goal were not enough for Bristol City to clinch the FA Women’s Super League 2 title from Yeovil Town’s grasp.

The Vixens had started the day knowing that a six goal swing was needed away to Oxford United in order to finish the season as champions.

City started brightly and opened the scoring in the 12th minute when Emslie picked up the ball just inside the Oxford half and beat her defender, before slotting home from 20 yards.

Their lead was doubled just after the half-hour mark when Jodie Brett's left wing cross was knocked into her own net by Oxford defender Madi Lee.

Emslie scored her second of the game two minutes later, heading in unmarked from Brett's right wing cross, before Farrow made it four in first-half stoppage time with a header from six yards.

The Vixens continued to apply pressure in the second half but were unable to extend their lead until the 83rd minute, when Farrow curled in her second from just inside the penalty area.

The result would have been even more emphatic but for a string of impressive saves from Demi Lambourne in the Oxford goal.
