MATCH REPORT – Oxford United 1-2 Wycombe Wanderers

| November 1, 2014

Wycombe Wanderers have propelled themselves back to the top spot in League Two after a decisive away win at Oxford United.

Oxford United took the lead in the thirty seventh minute when Danny Hylton scored from the penalty spot following a Joe Jacobson foul.

Wycombe may not have played to their full ability in the first half but they cane out firing on all cylinders after half time and took control of the game.

In the fiftieth minute Hogan Ephraim made his first appearance for the Chairboys as a substitute for Steven Craig. Two minutes later a cross by Ephraim found its way to Paul Hayes whose shot went straight to the top right corner of the net. The Blues built on their equaliser and nine minutes later Peter Murphy headed home Wycombe’s second goal and secured them a return to the top of the table.

It was Murphy’s third goal in three games.

Despite wining the match stats show that Wycombe only had 46% possession. Of their eight shots on goal three of Wycombe’s were on target compared to Oxford who also had three of their six shots on goal on target. Both sides committed thirteen fouls each.

Wycombe find themselves back in the driving seat in League Two but just one point ahead of Luton Town. Promotion is still likely at the end of the season and would be fitting for Wycombe with the way they are currently playing.

Attendance at the Kassam Stadium was 7,552 including 1,690 supporters for Wycombe Wanders.
