Morecambe 2-4 Oxford United

Jordan Bowery
Jordan Bowery's second goal for Oxford helped the U's to victory at Morecambe

Oxford scored three goals in the last 20 minutes to beat 10-man Morecambe.

U's striker Kemar Roofe volleyed past Barry Roche from close range before the hosts levelled through Lee Molyneux's brilliant chipped finish.

The game turned when Shaun Miller was sent off for a late tackle on Joe Skarz, with John Lundstram slamming in a loose ball soon after to make it 2-1.

Danny Hylton's rebound and Jordan Bowery's cool finish stretched the lead before Tom Barkhuizen's consolation.
