Port Vale 3-0 Oxford

Marc Bridge-Wilkinson crowned his debut with two goals as Port Vale cruised to victory over Oxford.

Tony Naylor poached a 28th minute opener, but it was former Derby reserve Bridge-Wilkinson who set the game alight.

The 21-year-old hammered home an unstoppable 15-yard volley in the 65th minute and bettered that just two minutes later.

Waltzing in from the left touchline, he crashed home a 30-yard shot which his former Derby team mate, Oxford keeper Richard Knight, could only admire.

For their part, Oxford were poor throughout and Vale, who struck the woodwork four times, should have won by more.

Port Vale: Goodlad, Carragher, Tankard, Burton, Cummins, Viljanen, Naylor, Widdrington, Bridge-Wilkinson, Minton, Twiss.

Subs: Delany, Walsh, Eyre, O'Callaghan, Olaoye.

Oxford Utd: Knight, Robertson, Powell, Fear, Richardson, McGuckin, Murphy, Tait, Omoyimni, Lilley, McGowan.

Subs: Beauchamp, Anthrobus, Jarman, Cook, Wilson.
