Torquay   3 - 4   Oxford Utd

Highlights - Torquay 3-4 Oxford Utd

Torquay 3-4 Oxford Utd

Jack Midson scored a dramatic injury-time goal to complete his hat-trick and give Oxford victory at Torquay.

Tom Craddock fired the U's ahead from the edge of the box before Midson turned in Harry Worley's header.

Elliott Benyon slotted home Torquay's first but Midson grabbed his second on the counter-attack to make it 3-1.

Benyon scored again after Ryan Clarke spilled the ball and Billy Kee drove home from the edge of the box, but Midson converted Alfie Potter's cross.


Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:
"We feel a touch deflated, because I felt we were by far the better team.

"We put so much in and I think we deserved a draw. And when we found ourselves behind twice, the players kept pushing.

"We had so many attempts on goal, but they were clinical in their finishing and we have to take that on the chin."
