OXFORD United Women claimed another convincing win as they beat London Bees 3-0 to go top of the table.

Leah Burridge scored her third goal in two games early on, before Carly Johns and Daisy McLachlan struck after the break at the RAW Charging Stadium.

The U’s have won their first three matches in FA Women’s National League Southern Premier and are yet to concede a goal.

Burridge scored inside two minutes at Plymouth Argyle on Sunday and repeated the trick on home turf.

Naomi Cole sent her fellow summer signing clear and the new recruit fired in off the post.

It was a closely-fought contest so the second goal was crucial, and it went the way of the hosts.

Shelly Provan did well to cut the ball back from the byline and find Johns, who curled into the back of the net for her first of the season.

U’s manager Liam Gilbert made several changes as full-time approached but the hosts stayed solid to protect the clean sheet.

McLachlan completed a productive evening in style in the second minute of stoppage-time, cutting inside before unleashing a curling shot into the top corner.
