Match Preview | Millwall Lionesses v Oxford Women

November 10, 2017

Written by:

 

Millwall Lionesses are back in league action this weekend and after such a busy and hectic week you'd be forgiven if you have been very confused about it all.

 

The Lionesses were docked 3 points during the week dropping them down to 4th in the league after a administration error when an ineligible player was fielded on the opening day of the season in the 3-1 win over Watford.

 

The Lionesses will look to do their talking on the pitch against a Oxford side who are also unbeaten themselves in the league as well and will look to continue their great start in the league when they visit St.Pauls sports ground on Sunday.

 

The Lionesses ran out 2-0 winners last time the two sides met thanks to goals from Bonnie Horwood and Ella Rutherford back in April and they will be looking to claim 3 points again at home.

 

One player who has proved to be a real force in the side is Megan Wynne. The welsh winger is incredibly quick and poses a constant threat on the wing. Just like a few others Megan is well overdue an international call up and should her performances maintain throughout the season, She will definitely be getting the phone call soon.

 

Megan spoke to us about Sundays game against Oxford.

 

Q1) The Lionesses haven't gone in front once this season, how important is it that you start taking the lead?

 

Megan: It's great that we have been able to come from behind so many times, it shows the team resilience, desire and quality that this squad has. However, we have to stop conceding so many goals so early on! It's going to get to the point when we find ourselves behind and we won't be able to get back in the game. In the last few weeks we have been working on how we will approach the first 10 minutes of games and i'm confident going forwards we will stop conceding so early.

 

Q2) With yourself and the Lionesses doing well at the moment, is a call up for Wales very much due?

 

Megan: I haven't had any involvement with the Welsh team for a little while now, so its quite dissapoitning. I follow it all and I am always keen to see how the welsh squad is doing, they've recently had some great results. I will continue to focus on myself and Millwall and working as hard as I possibly can to try and get back into the set up. It is one of my main aims. If I perform well, hopefully I will get another opportunity in the near future. I'm not giving up just yet!

 

Q3) What are you and the team to expect from Oxford on Sunday, what threat will they pose?

 

Megan: We are expepcting a completely different team to the Oxford we faced last year, they have signed a number of decent players, especially Hannah Short who I actually played with when I had a short stint in the USA! They too have had a great start to the season so I'm sure it will be a very competitive game. Even though we know Oxford will be a big threat, like every game we have said we wont focus on Oxford too much, we will continue to focus on ourselves and our own game.

 

Q4) Whats been the key to such a good start to the league this season?

 

Megan: As a squad, over the last few seasons we have faced a number of big challenges. This has brought us all very close together and we have become a very tight knit group. The spring series allowed us to build some consistency and really show what we are about. Our great spring series attracted some new additions such as Charlie, Megan, Viki and Rianna who have fitted perfectly into our team and helped us push onto another level! We also owe a lot to our manager Lee Burch, what he has done at this club is unbelieveable. He has got us playing some great football and more importantly bringing the best in us all.

 

Q5) After the news midweek is this game even more important to get three points and get back on top spot?

 

Megan: Obvioulsy, the midweek news has been quite hard to swallow, after such a good start to the season. The first two days after we found out, we were all quite low. However, we had a meeting before training on Wednesday and decided to put it behind us and forget about it now. We can't change whats happened the only thing we can do is go and fight for every single point and continue to do our talking on the pitch. We have overcome bigger obstacles than this in the past so it can only make us stronger.

 

 

The welsh wizard seems ready to collect 3 points on Sunday and so are the Lionesses get yourself down there and don't miss out in what will be a massive game for both sides.

 

COME ON YOU LIONS!!!
