LAUREN Haynes is bracing herself for two very different matches on Sunday.

The Oxford United Women captain will lead her team out against arch-rivals Swindon Town in the League Cup preliminary round at Court Place Farm, with kick-off at midday.

Haynes will then race over to the Kassam Stadium for the Micky Lewis memorial match, where she will line-up for an Oxford City All Stars XI.

“Pretty much every emotion you can possibly feel is going to be hit,” the 26-year-old said.

“It’s going to be a barrage of emotions, but two very different sides of football.

“Ultimately, we’re there (at the Kassam) to celebrate Micky and I think it’s going to be a fantastic occasion.”

Haynes worked with Lewis at Oxford City’s Velocity football and education programme, where they led the men’s and women’s sections respectively.

The U’s stalwart would likely have told her to focus on the derby, which should bring in a healthy crowd.

Swindon play a tier below United in FA Women’s National League Division One South West and Haynes hopes to continue her proud record against the Robins.

The midfielder said: “It’s Oxford-Swindon, whether it’s the men’s or the women’s game.

“We always take every game as it comes, regardless of who we’re playing, but hopefully we’ll get a good amount of supporters down.

“If we lose we’re out, so the motivation’s there to make sure we progress.

“They’ve always fallen a couple of leagues below us, but as long as I’ve been at Oxford we’re unbeaten against them.”

United have a 100 per cent record at Court Place Farm this season, helping them to seventh in FA Women’s National League Southern Premier.

But defeat at Crawley Wasps last Sunday and the postponement of Wednesday’s trip to Hounslow has made for a difficult week so far.

Haynes said: “You want to go and fix things on Wednesday night, which we couldn’t do.

“We’re going in with a bit of frustration after not being able to redeem ourselves.

“We’re going to take out a bit of anger on Swindon.”

Whatever the result, it will be a quick turnaround for Haynes ahead of the 3pm kick-off at the Kassam Stadium.

She said: “I’ve got a masterplan in place.

“First-team duties come as a priority, but it’s a case of chucking bags in my mum’s car, changing into a new kit and being ready for the first half of the Micky game.”

United will be supported by men’s head coach Karl Robinson, plus some of his players, and Haynes says it shows a ‘one-club mentality’.

She added: “It gets better the more we talk about it.

“It’s not just a case of what are the first-team doing, but what are the women’s first-team doing?

“That joined-up thinking is becoming a lot more important.”
