Oxford United 1-0 Cambridge United

Tyler Goodrham scored a stunning single goal deep in stoppage time to give Oxford victory over Cambridge and their first points of the League One season.

Teenager Goodrham intervened from the left, dribbled past three defenders and then rolled a shot into the far top corner to deny Cambridge what would have been a third clean sheet from three league and cup games earlier this season.

Mark Bonner’s side, who had bolstered their opening-day win with a midweek Carabao Cup win over Millwall, created every chance in the first half.

Sam Smith saw his chip drift wide over Simon Eastwood after expertly flipping two defenders.

Harvey Knibbs played a wide foot from the ball five yards from Simon Tracey’s cross and Harrison Dunk fired just over the goal from long range.

Oxford’s first real chance came when Marcus Browne felt he was being rolled over by Lloyd Jones, but the referee waved it away.

Matty Taylor shot tamely wide at the edge early in the second half as the home side struggled to create against a very organized Cambridge side.

Goalkeeper Dimitar Mitov acrobatically parried two corner headers from Elliott Moore and Taylor in the middle before Goodrham scored a stunning goal.
