Grays Athletic 0-4 Oxford Utd


Grays Athletic 0-4 Oxford United

Oxford United eased to their first league win since 5 December to keep up the pressure on new Blue Square Premier leaders Stevenage.

Simon Clist hit his fifth of the season to put Oxford ahead from close range.

Oxford then grabbed their second within 15 seconds of the restart, Alfie Potter firing home from the edge of the box into the bottom right corner.

Top scorer James Constable then hit his first goal in five games, before Matt Green wrapped it up in injury time.

Grays handed debuts to six of their eight new signings but it was the same old story as they slipped to their 17th defeat in 28 games.

After Clist's 19th minute opener, Grays were caught cold straight from the half-time restart when Potter curled home a second.

Constable then struck from close range for his 19th goal of the season - his first in five games since Oxford's FA Cup exit at Barrow on 8 December.

And substitute Green came on for Potter and finished from the edge of the area to make the win emphatic.
