Yeovil Town boss Jamie Sherwood says the best is still to come from his side after Sunday's 3-0 win over Oxford United in Women's Super League Two.

Second-half goals from Corinne Yorston, Nicola Cousins and Annie Heatherson gave Town a first league win of 2015.

"We are a better footballing side than we are showing, but that will come with confidence", said Sherwood.

"It was all about getting three points on the board and we now start looking forward for the rest of the season."

After defeats by Doncaster and Reading in their first two league games, Yeovil are now up to fifth in the table.

"We asked the girls to be patient," Sherwood added. "I don't think the conditions helped and the pitch was quite bobbly as well.

"Three points on the board gives us more confidence and we look to play a bit more of our game."

Oxford boss Les Taylor, whose side are now eighth on goal-difference, said the result was a fair reflection of the second half.

"In the first half, we had a game plan and to a certain degree it worked, and we were hoping that the girls would go out and do exactly the same second half," he said.

"But we conceded an early goal and that's a massive boost for the opposition. We're chasing the game and that really knocks you back."

Yeovil now travel to face league leaders Reading on Saturday, while Oxford host Aston Villa on Sunday.
