Histon 3-4 Oxford United

James Constable
Constable has been a big success at Oxford since joining on loan in August 2008

James Constable's double helped Oxford maintain their unbeaten start to the season in a seven-goal thriller.

Matthew Green's strike put Oxford ahead before Histon equalised after half-time with a Jamie Barker header.

A rocket shot from Simon Clist restored the lead before Histon's Danny Naisbitt was dismissed for shoving Green.

Constable's brace made it 4-1 with two shots from just inside the area, before Histon hit back through Matthew Langston and Josh Simpson late on.
