Oxford United skipper Adam Murray ensured his side stayed top of the table with a second-half strike in a bruising encounter against Stevenage.

Alfie Potter fired the U's ahead from close range after bringing down a Dannie Bulman free-kick on his chest.

Joel Byrom nearly drew Stevenage level with a 25-yard strike before Murray's low shot doubled the home side's lead.

Former Oxford striker Yemi Odubade's close-range shot made it 2-1 late on but they could not salvage a draw.
