Oxford break home duck
 Women's Football News 7 Sep 2014
Oxford Utd 1 (Allison 30) Millwall Lionesses 0
It was a good day for Oxford as Lauren Allison's 30th minute header secured the U's a 1-0 win over Millwall Lionesses. 
The victory was United's first at home this season and also the first clean sheet of the campaign.
Ella Franklin-Fraiture had a great chance to give United an early lead, throwing herself at Laura Low's dangerous cross but she just couldn't make enough contact to turn it goalwards. United were looking dangerous from set pieces, Kayleigh Hines drawing an excellent reaction save from Millwall keeper Sarah Quantrill with a powerful diving header from a corner.
It was another Jemma Connor-Iommi corner on the half hour mark which eventually broke the deadlock, Lauren Allison stooping to head in at the front post.
The U's almost doubled the lead immediately after the restart as Franklin-Fraiture got the wrong side of the defence, only to be pulled down as she bore down on goal. Connor-Iommi stepped up to take the kick, driving it hard up the middle, but Quantrill acrobatically stretched out an arm to tip her spot kick over the bar.
The U's continued to press forward after the break, Allison heading narrowly wide from a Low cross and Hines striking the bar with another headed effort from a Megan Alexander corner.
But despite mounting pressure the second goal continued to evade the U's, Allison again being denied as she burst through on goal, first seeing her effort blocked by the keeper and then heading the rebound against the post.
With United failing to extend their lead there were nervy moments to follow as the visitors struck the bar with one speculative long range effort from Stevie Lamb in the final minutes. But despite a nervous finish to the match, United were able to see it out to claim a richly deserved victory. 
Oxford Utd: Demi Lambourne, Jemma Connor-Iommi, Megan Alexander, Kayleigh Hines, Ellen Oliver, Amy Chivers, Katie Stanley, Lauren Allison, Ella Franklin-Fraiture (sub Helen King 45mins), Katherine Nutman (sub Holly Pickett 80mins), Laura Low (sub Lindsay Pinker 73mins).

Millwall Lionesses: Sarah Quantrill, Naomi Cole, Frankie Strugnell, Lilli Maple (sub Grace Fisk 70mins), Kylie Davies, Leanne Cowan, Ciara Sherwood (sub Stevie Lamb 55mins), Lily Agg, Kim Stenning (sub Francesca Ali 55mins), Cherrelle Albert, Lillie Fenlon-Billson.
