Oxford United 2-0 Cambridge United

First-half goals from Kemar Roofe and Danny Hylton gave Oxford United victory over Cambridge United and stretched their unbeaten run to seven games.

Roofe put the hosts ahead when he cut in from the left to fire in an unstoppable right-footed effort.

Sully Kaikai came close to equalising for Cambridge, but his shot was deflected just wide.

Hylton headed in Danny Rose's corner on the stroke of half-time before the game petered out after the break.
