‘We’ve got to be more clinical’ - Oxtoby

Tanya Oxtoby rues missed opportunities in what was a largely positive display in defeat on Sunday afternoon as her side slipped to a 2-0 loss against Everton at Southport FC.

Chloe Kelly’s double before the break was the difference between the two sides, but the City Women boss was pleased with her side’s display before two lapses in concentration cost them.

“I think the first forty-four minutes of that game was the best football we have played since I have been at the club, so it’s disappointing to go into the break 2-0 down because we’ve switched off for a couple of minutes and it has cost us.

“The movement off the ball was exceptional today, now we’ve got to be better in the final third and be more clinical, as well as cutting out the individual errors because both those goals were very preventable.

“The fact we’re talking about us dominating possession shows we’re moving in the right direction as a club and that’s where we want to move towards. Young Georgia Wilson made her debut today and played a full ninety minutes, so it shows we’re continuing to produce young players.”

The Australian is looking forward to seeing her young side develop and grow as a team throughout the season.

“I think you’re going to see the best of this side just before Christmas and if we’re going to continue to develop in the way we have over the last two weeks then there are exciting times ahead.

“If we tidy up those individual errors and sloppy bits of play, we’re actually right in that game and creating the better chances so there are positives to take from the game.”
