Oxford Utd   3 - 1   Shrewsbury

Graphic of Oxford United v Shrewsbury

Oxford United 3-1 Shrewsbury

James Constable netted twice as Oxford beat promotion-chasing Shrewsbury to move into the play-off places.

Asa Hall's 20-yard strike put the U's ahead but Mark Wright equalised with a long-range deflected drive.

Oxford were left frustrated when referee Steve Tanner awarded Damian Batt a penalty only to revoke his decision after consulting the linesman.

But Constable drilled a low shot in before firing home from an acute angle against his former club.


Shrewsbury manager Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:
"We never got going, the pace of our play was nowhere near what I'd expect.

"We were outworked, and they were much sharper than us.

"Being level at half time it didn't look too bad, and I thought we were making their crowd a bit edgy - but the second and third goals were absolutely abysmal from a defensive point of view.

"We were awful. We were second best all over the place."
