Cambridge United 5-1 Oxford United

Kwesi Appiah
Appiah scored his third and fourth goals of the season against Oxford

Kwesi Appiah scored twice as Cambridge came from behind to hammer Oxford.

Danny Hylton put the visitors in front with a powerful header beyond goalkeeper Chris Dunn.

But Appiah equalised with a fabulous touch and finish into the top corner, and then steered his side ahead having had his original shot saved.

Ryan Donaldson converted Appiah's cross soon after half-time, before Tom Elliott's header and Robbie Simpson's late tap-in added gloss to the score.
