Wycombe Wanderers Ladies defeated Ascot United 4-0 to claim their second victory of the new Premier Division season on Sunday.

The hosts started well, retaining possession well and looking to release their strike trio of Tara Woodward, Sam Jackson and Chante Inniss. On 12 minutes the early pressure told with a thumping strike from Jackson leaving the despairing Philips in the visitors goal no chance. The same player doubled the lead after an excellent pass from Lindsay Pinker who had a good afternoon in the middle of the park.

The Chairgirls continued to press although endured a couple of scares when being caught square by long through balls with Johnson coming closest for the visitors. Tara Woodward has been working hard to create chances for herself and team-mates and in the 29th minute got her reward when Emma Newberry's cross was spilt by the keeper into her path.

3-0 at half-time but there were some worrying signs as the Chairgirls passing became less fluent and were missing their intended targets giving Ascot some hope.

The second half was not as pleasing on the eye as the hosts continued to misplace passes when given freedom to play. Ascot worked tirelessly to get something from the game and came close when a goal bound volley from Fettes was diverted for a corner by Katie Hudson.

70 minutes ticked by and saw Chante Inniss being sin-binned for 10 minutes for dissent. However, despite being down to 10 players, the Chairgirls' response was almost immediate when Newberry got on the end of Hudson assist to seal the points.

A clean sheet and three points is much welcomed by the Chairgirls but more work to do to eliminate some of the unforced errors that crept into their game.

Next week sees the Chairgirls return to FA Cup action at National League and near neighbours Chesham United, 2pm kick-off.
