Kayleigh Hines praised the character and attitude of her Oxford United team mates after they picked up their first point of the season in WSL 2 with a 2-2 draw against Reading Women.
The U's twice came from behind in the local derby and the midfielder told Women's Soccer Scene: "We showed character and had to dig deep for it but even in the previous games when we've gone one or two goals down in some periods, we haven't really let our heads drop and that is always a positive to take.
"The results in the last few weeks have obviously been disappointing [but] we've always highlighted that the performances are there and it was nice to get a point for our work rate. It wasn't the best game but I think it was important that we dug in and got our first point on the board."
Kayleigh herself made a huge contribution by scoring Oxford's first goal against her former club. "It's always nice," she smiled. "I don't really score that often but it was nice to do so anyway and I think it might have been our first goal at home, so it was nice for the people who have been making an effort to come out and watch us play. They're probably as disappointed as us at not getting results in the last few weeks so it was good to do it for them as well."
Lauren Allison grabbed an injury time equaliser to secure the point for Oxford and Kayleigh was quick to praise the striker's work rate up front. "Lauren has been doing that week in week out and we were under a lot of pressure today but she never stops working, she runs and runs and sometimes she is isolated, but she deserved it today and hopefully it's the first of many for her.
"We shall take this into the break now and will be out on the training ground and put the work in so that we are ready to play Durham at the end of June.
"It's been a long time coming but the performances hadn't been there we'd be more worried, but they are. I think it's just a matter of getting the results to come our way as well."
