Northampton Town 1-3 Oxford United

Oxford made it three wins from four as they came from behind to beat Northampton in League Two.

Enda Stevens gave the Cobblers the lead, exchanging passes with Joel Byrom before firing into the corner.

Oxford equalised when Danny Rose crossed for Danny Hylton to head over the stranded Jordan Archer.

Hylton's penalty, after Alfie Potter was fouled by John-Joe O'Toole, put Oxford in front and Potter's deflected cross made it 3-1 to the visitors.

Wilder on Northampton v Oxford

Northampton Town manager Chris Wilder tells BBC Radio Northampton:

"We've lost three games on the bounce so I'm not happy - we've had five minutes of madness.

"There's been quite a few changes in defence and they're not great goals (to concede) but I didn't think there was a lot (between the two sides).

"I 100% believe that when this group's all together, we'll win matches. There's a couple of players that possibly need a break but there's not a lot of choice in team selection.

"We've got to stick together and work hard. It's an easy game when things are going well and everybody is a hero."
