Oxford United 1-2 Accrington Stanley

Accrington Stanley upset fellow League Two promotion chasers Oxford with a late strike at the Kassam Stadium.

Stanley played the last seven minutes with 10 men after centre-back Tom Davies received a second booking.

Scott Brown's low drive proved the winner with three minutes left.

Kemar Roofe had earlier given the hosts a first-half lead with his 20th goal of the season but Billy Kee equalised just after the interval as he beat Benji Buchel at his left post.

Fourth-placed Accrington closed the gap on Oxford in third to three points with the win and have two games in hand on the U's.
