Oxford 1-0 Gravesend
Jim Smith
Jim Smith's Oxford kept up the pressure on leaders Dagenham
Robert Duffy got the game's only goal as Oxford ended their 11-game winless run at the expense of 10-man Gravesend.

The striker thundered a rising header home on 36 minutes from Daniel Rose's teasing cross for his 17th of the season to settle a hard-fought game.

Defeat was harsh on Gravesend, who went close through a long-range effort from Charlie MacDonald in the first half.

But the visitors' hopes of getting a draw were ended on the hour when Peter Hawkins saw red for a second booking.
