Eversley & California 0-1 Milton United
It's now five wins from seven for unbeaten Milton United. April England came on from the bench to grab the only goal of the game as the leaders edged past The Boars. The three points takes Milton five points clear at the top of the table, although they have played one more than Penn & Tylers Green. Next weekend the top two once again go head to head (see preview below).
Long Crendon 1-1 Penn & Tylers Green
Penn retained their unbeaten start to the season but also lost a little ground on leaders Milton United.
Penn remain unbeaten but lose ground on the leaders. Henna Hussain scored her sixth goal of the season to give Penn the lead but this was cancelled out by an Amber Cattell strike before half-time. Long Crendon remain in sixth spot with their fourth draw from six games.

Woodley United 3-0 Kidlington
Woodley produced a superb first half performance to effectively guarantee the points before the break. Goals from Gemma Sims, Maddie Sawyer and a penalty from Sophie Measham gave United a 3-0 lead at the break. Kidlington can take some comfort in their much improved second half showing. Woodley leapfrog The greens into third spot on the back of this result. Once again Wanderin Tractor was on hand to give us a great match report, as too Reading Today.

This weekend's fixtures
Carterton v Headington Amateurs (13:30 ko)
After picking up their first league point of the season and then having a week off, Carterton are back in County Cup action on Sunday. They take on Headington Amateurs who are currently mid-table in the Thames Valley League Division 3 West. Headington's season has been up and down but they did win at the weekend, 3-0 at home to Thatcham & Newbury. There's a three division gap between the teams. Carterton will be looking to take a morale boosting victory whilst Headington will, no doubt, be looking for a cupset.
Sports Pavilion, Monahan Way, Carterton OX18 3AN
Oxford United v Kidlington (13:30 ko)
The County Cup will provide some welcome relief from a slight wobble in Kidlington's league season but they are certainly in for a challenge as they look to make the short journey to National League Southern Premier leaders Oxford United. The Greens are without a win since they beat Carterton 4-2 on September 25th, although they have drawn two of the games since. Oxford are unbeaten in their league and can boast a very strong defensive record with only 3 goals conceded in 9 games. However, The Greens have sic goal Courtney Sumner in their side to give The Yellows a test.

Caversham United v Long Crendon (14:00 ko)
After a week off, the fifth placed Goats welcome sixth placed Long Crendon to Mapeldurham. Long Crendon are just a point behind Caversham and have a game in hand. The sides met just over a month ago at Long Crendon Recreation Ground. The game finished 0-0 but was an entertaining affair with both sides having chances and The Goats hitting the woodwork four times in total (Greens And Goats Goalless).
Mapeldurham Recreation Ground, Upper Woodcote Road, Mapledurham, Reading RG4 7LD
Penn & Tylers Green v Milton United (14:00 ko)
The top two clash for the second time in two weeks. A topsy-turvy game at Milton Heights ended in a 2-2 draw. Sasha Smith gave Penn the lead, Holly Porter equalised for Milton. Henna Hussain restored the lead before Katie Miller squared it up again. Between them these two teams have amassed 42 goals in 13 matches, so clearly both sides have ample firepower. To make matters more interesting, Milton also currently have a 100% away record.
French School Meadow, Elm Road, Penn HP10 8LG
Woodley United v Eversley & California
With two wins and a draw in their last three league outings, Woodley have shot up the table and will start this one in third place. Eversley remain second from bottom but have only played four league games, so this may well be a false position. The sides met on the opening day of the season. Top scoroer May Hamblin grabbed the only goal as United left Fox Lane with all three points.
