OXFORD United cruised into the SSE Women’s FA Cup third round with a 4-0 home win against Cambridge United.

The visitors were on the back foot early on at Court Place Farm, but survived for 30 minutes.

The deadlock was broken by Ellie Noble, who was on hand to turn in a cross from the returning Evie Gane.

Lauren Haynes quickly doubled the lead, threading a shot through a crowded penalty area.

Any hopes Cambridge had of a comeback evaporated with Flo Fyfe’s chip at the start of the second half extended the lead, before Gane sealed the victory.

They will be at home again in the next round, with Blackburn Rovers the visitors in January.

Abingdon went down 4-0 at high-fliers Ascot United, while Division 1 West side Clanfield could not upset Bishops Cleeve, who ran out 5-0 winners.

Shrivenham also progressed, having been handed a walkover with opponents Woodstock Town unable to field a team.
