Oxford United 4-0 Morecambe

Oxford Utd   4 - 0   Morecambe

James Constable hit a hat-trick as Oxford eased to victory against Morecambe - their first win in the Football League since April 2006.

Simon Heslop put the U's ahead with a 30-yard drive and captain Constable headed home the midfielder's corner four minutes later.

Morecambe left-back Laurence Wilson was sent off for a second yellow and moments later Constable drilled home.

He added his third from Alfie Potter's cutback in stoppage time.
