Oxford 2-1 Boston

Oxford strengthened their challenge for a place in the play-offs with a win at home to Boston.

Oxford took control from the outset and Andy Crosby headed them in front from a Bobby Ford free-kick in the 16th minute.

Ford then doubled the lead with a close-range header nine minutes into the second half before the hosts gifted Boston a goal in the 69th minute to give the visitors hope.

Crosby completely missed a long clearance from Boston goalkeeper Paul Bastock to allow Stuart Douglas the easiest of goals.

The visitors should have equalised but Simon Weatherstone fired wide from 10 yards.


Oxford Utd: Woodman, McNiven, Waterman, Crosby, Bound, Robinson, Savage, Hunt, Ford, Basham, Scott. Subs: Steele, Louis, Powell, Hunter, Whitehead.

Boston Utd: Bastock, Costello, Hocking, Greaves, Chapman, Simon Weatherstone, Ellender, Bennett, George, Logan, Duffield. Subs: Price, Redfearn, Town, Ross Weatherstone, Douglas.
