Oxford Utd 1-3 Cheltenham

Cheltenham Town made it seven away wins in a row and inflicted a fifth consecutive defeat on Oxford United.

Sido Jombati gave the Robins the lead with a left-footed cross-shot from the right-hand side.

Visiting centre-back Alan Bennett hit the bar before Oxford had Liam Davis sent off for a second booking.

James Spencer's tapped home for 2-0 and Peter Leven's late free-kick gave Oxford hope before Kaid Mohamed's deflected free-kick sealed it.


Oxford United boss Chris Wilder told BBC Radio Oxford:

"I thought the way we responded after going 2-0 down was magnificent. We showed real spirit.

"We're looking at getting Michael Duberry, Alfie Potter and Tom Craddock back soon, so that will be a real boost to us.

"Cheltenham are an excellent side and they're on great form."

Cheltenham Town manager Mark Yates told BBC Gloucestershire:

"It's a tough place to come. They've got a few injuries at the moment so it was probably a good time to play them.

"It was a deserved victory as they put in a really spirited performance in the second half, but we're disappointed that we conceded a goal.

"I don't want to single anyone out, one to 11 and the subs were all good, and there were some really good performances."
