Oxford United Ladies recorded their first ever victory in the FA Women's Super League 2 with a 2-1 success against fellow strugglers Durham.

The result lifts the U's off the bottom of the table.

After Emily Scott had given Durham the lead, Kayleigh Hines' long-range effort and Jemma Connor-Lommi's goal direct from a corner sealed the win.

"It was a tough game and I'm just really proud of all the girls," said U's captain Sahara Osbourne-Ricketts.

"We had a bit of luck but we were due some as we've not had a lot of luck this season.

"Once we got the equaliser I felt we would push on and get the win which we did," she continued.

"Hopefully this will be a springboard and now we can push on and get more wins.

"We're off the bottom and this will give the team massive confidence which we can take into the upcoming cup games."
