Notts County 2-4 Oxford United

Oxford's players celebrate Kemar Roofe goal, which sealed a 4-2 win over Notts County
Oxford's players celebrate Kemar Roofe's goal, which sealed a victory and ensured Oxford stayed third in League Two

Callum O'Dowda and Kemar Roofe both scored in the 90th minute as promotion-chasing Oxford United earned a comeback win at managerless Notts County.

Liam Sercombe's penalty, after a Roy Carroll foul, put the visitors ahead.

Notts, who this week parted company with Ricardo Moniz, levelled through Jon Stead's header and led when Curis Thompson fired in.

But Alex MacDonald's strike made it 2-2 and O'Dowda and Roofe earned a victory with two glorious long-range shots.

Oxford remain third in League Two while Notts drop to 17th place, but are still closer to the play-offs than the relegation zone.
