FA Cup: Oxford United 0-0 Forest Green Rovers highlights

Forest Green Rovers had to settle for an FA Cup first-round replay after wasting a number of chances against League One strugglers Oxford United.

The visitors failed to take clear opportunities either side of the break, Theo Archibald firing over before Reece Brown shot wide of an unguarded net.

In response, United rarely troubled the League Two visitors.

Rovers substitute George Williams went closest to winning it in the final minute, shooting against the post.
