Oxford Utd 1-0 Wrexham

A goal from in-form James Constable in the fourth minute of injury time kept alive Oxford's play-off hopes and all but ended Wrexham's slim chances.

Wrexham made a bright start before the Us began to find their rhythm as Constable and Chris Wilmott went close.

Wrexham keeper Gunnar Neilsen went off with a broken scaphoid, outfield player Ashley Westwood taking over in goal.

Deep into injury time Craig Nelthorpe crossed from the left and Constable was on hand to head a dramatic winner.

The victory extends Oxford's unbeaten run to nine games.
