Millwall Lionesses 2 (Albert 41, Plewa 90) Oxford Utd 0
Millwall continue their unbeaten form in FA WSL 2 with a 2-0 win against Oxford United at The Den.
Millwall started the strongest and Cherrelle Albert struck the bar inside the first minute following an adventurous run down the wing from Lillie Fenlon-Billson. Oxford had a glorious chance to take the lead after five minutes when Laura Low put the ball wide from six yards after a clever cut back from Lauren Allison.
Millwall then took control and Hannah Cox was forced into action after 25 minutes when she made a fine double but it was in vain as the home side found a breakthrough after 41 minutes when Albert received the ball with her back to goal, turned the defender and rifled the ball into the top corner from 30 yards.
Oxford pushed for the equaliser in the second half and were denied by the post after 49 minutes when Lauren Alison's smart effort came back off the upright after smart play from Helen King.
King then won her side a free kick 30 yards out after a surging run through the middle of the field and Jemma Connor-Iommi's shot forced a good save out of Sarah Quantrill.
But, despite the visitor's best efforts the win was sealed well in to time added on when substitute Emma Plewa doubled the lead with a cross-cum-shot from the right hand side.
