Stevenage   0 - 0   Oxford Utd

Stevenage 0-0 Oxford

Stevenage 0-0 Oxford

Oxford and Stevenage played out a goalless draw in their first Football League meeting since being promoted from the Blue Square Bet Premier.

The first two minutes promised much - Boro's Craig Reid rattled the crossbar from 25 yards while U's striker Tom Craddock hit a post on the counter.

James Constable also hit the post with a right-footed volley, but no clearer chances were forthcoming.

The result leaves Stevenage without a win in their last five outings.


Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"I have to say I thought it was a very good game, both sides had a positive mentality in the way they were playing.

"I thought we had by far the better of the game, certainly the better of the chances, albeit they hit the post twice in the first half.

"There's a winning mentality about both camps and a lot of good quality on display."
