Oxford United secured their first victory in four matches as they came from a goal behind to beat Port Vale.
Vale scored when Marc Richards tapped in a rebound after his penalty, awarded for a foul from Ben Purkiss on Tom Pope, had been saved by Ryan Clarke.
Oxford were gifted an equaliser when Vale's Chris Martin fumbled Alfie Potter's shot and Jack Midson finished.
Harry Worley scored the winner for the U's, smashing in an angled drive past substitute goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson.
Port Vale boss Jim Gannon told BBC Radio Stoke: "Regardless of the tactics I just thought we looked tired, we weren't very good technically and we gave the ball away a lot.
"Maybe the seven changes helped them, but they just looked brighter, they were a little more alert and we looked; well the only word I can use really is jaded.
"It's going to be an important week for us, we've got to give some players a good rest because they've been overworked and other players have got to show now that they want to add something to the team."
