Oxford United 1 (Potter 88), Swindon Town 0

Banbury Cake: Ryan Clarke saves bravely against Swindon Ryan Clarke saves bravely against Swindon

Johnstone's Paint Trophy 1st round

ALFIE Potter's late goal gave Oxford United a deserved victory to continue their superb run against Swindon Town.

The substitute tapped in James Constable's cross to seal a fourth successive derby victory for the U's over their rivals.

It gave a dramatic finish to an intense game, played out in a terrific atmosphere at the Kassam Stadium.

Just as they had done in both league victories last season, United defended superbly, with Jake Wright producing a towering performance at centre half.

As expected both sides made changes from the weekend.

United's reshuffled XI saw a new front three of Jon-Paul Pittman, Constable and Tom Craddock, while Daniel Boateng made his first start in midfield.

The atmosphere steadily built up to kick-off and was electric when the game began.

As you would expect in a derby, the opening exchanges were played at a frantic pace.

United did most of the pressing, without getting a clear sight of Wes Foderingham's goal.

At the other end Giles Coke, one of six players brought into the Swindon side, had the first chance when he swapped passes with Paul Benson, but he lashed wide.

The bumper home crowd divided their attention between voicing their support for Chris Wilder and criticising Paolo Di Canio in the opposing technical area.

United enjoyed good spells before half-time, but were unable to forge a clear chance as Swindon's defence stood firm.

The visitors had the best of the few opportunities, none better than debutant Darren Ward, who headed Coke's 23rd minute free kick over when he should have done better.

The U's back four, who were criticised for errors in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at York, were back to their best.

Wright led by example and several dangerous moments were snuffed out by brave blocks.

The hosts' best moment in the first half came on 32 minutes. Adam Chapman's through ball appeared to set Pittman through, but Federico Bessone raced across to make a last-ditch tackle.

The interval did nothing to slow the tempo once the second half began and United again made the faster start.

An early free kick fell to Craddock's feet, but the striker was caught flat-footed and could not make a meaningful contact.

Potter's introduction gave United an added cutting edge and the winger wasted little time in making an impact with two jinking runs.

With the defensive-minded Boateng making way, it opened the game up at both ends.

Neither goalkeeper was really tested until 15 minutes from time, when a sweetly struck free kick from Forster-Caskey was tipped over by Wes Foderingham.

The game looked destined for a penalty shoot-out, but three minutes from time the Kassam Stadium erupted.

A harmless clearance forward saw two Town defenders go for the same ball, which fell to Constable. The striker seized on the chance, running into the box and squaring for an unmarked Potter, who buried the chance.

United saw out the remaining minutes without any scares, before the celebrations began in earnest.

great win and hopefully this will be the catalyst for two things; a decent winning run from us and a dismal losing one for Swindon. League is still most important -although the curious disappearance of le god when yet again his team can't beat us is amusing.

I promised myself I wouldn't sing rude negative songs about a certain fascist manager & equally rude songs about a place down the A420 but the occasion got the better of me, sorry, a true fan maybe, like some of our adversaries!!!

Well done Oxford you deserved the win and good luck in the next round. JPT should be taken seriously it brings money in a day at wembley and possibly a trophy. As for tonights match i felt it was poor Oxford just played long ball all the time and Swindon just could not settle and play the passing game like we normally do. As for Di Canio his views and his beliefs are his own what does it matter to other people when so many swindon and oxford fans probably have his views as well. Also i think huge respect must go to di canio tonight as usually he tries to have a pop at you lot tonight i think he took defeat very gracious and didnt do anything to your fans tonight which probably says from him well done and deserved. Although you all think Di Canio is waste of space. He is a good manager he is one of the most passionate and its his way or out which many managers are not strict where as Di Canio is. You would not moan if you had him as your manager. And he is just like Mourinhio i dont think he means his comments he just likes to stoke it up in the heat of battle, As for rest of season all the best and dont listen to other fans who say long ball dont work as most other teams play it anyway.

Great scenes last night (again)

Paolo ruefully said no Charity but the goal was an absolute gift ! You do get the distinct impression that it's very much the "PAOLO" town show as he dominates the whole club. He looked suicidal at the final whistle. Head bowed, shoulders hunched and gutted.

I call recall so many occasions where
we have lost at the CG but deserved
better so beating them is always sweet.

Despite their possession count - Clarke did not have anything to do so defensively we were committed and dogged as you would expect under CW.

I am a bit puzzled how STFC can afford a squad of that quality but I guess their owners have deep pockets!

Quality win and atmosphere - it's nights like these that you live for as an Oxford UNITED fan!!

By the way good to read some decent comments from STFC fans on here.

These Derbies are great though and PdC adds real spice with his rhetoric
but tactically in these games you need a bit of tactical 'nous'. I am not saying PdC struggles tactically - he just gets too emotionally involved and is a bit
too much outspoken and it fires our bellies.

Great occasion though and we move on.

Looking at the ST squad - you feel they will go very close gain with the quality they have right through the squad. Their left back Bessone looked class and I've always liked Ferry.

I would love to know what their playing budget is as PdC managed to bring in another FIVE players on deadline day.

It's galling that we never seem to have any money but nights like yesterday mean everything really.

Firstly, and echoing the comments of others, well done to those Swindon fans who came on here and posted positive comments about the game - you're a credit to your club and true footy fans.

I thought it was a tough game under unusual circumstances as its a comp that nobody really wants to be in and given all the rumours surrounding Wilder made it quite interested to see what teams turned up - but I'll tell you what, they were both a credit to their passionate fans and made for a tasty encounter.
Wilder was spot on with his tactics; stifle, probe and stand firm. Di Canio to his credit tried to mix it up but I think this only created confusion in the Swindon ranks and they simply didn't know how their manager wanted them to play (Might be wrong but that was just my interpritation).
Awesome result and well done to all those involved - still buzzing now!! Right best get some work done.

How I wish that United were in a higher division. We so much miss the derby games in a competition which matters. No doubt, like many fans of Swindon, Plymouth, Coventry, Luton and Pompey - I hope that one day soon we will get back to playing clubs which bring more than a few hundred to our respective home grounds. Yep, I am very envious of Swindon - but that will surely change within the next ten years - hopefully within the next three . Some of the abuse thrown on here is pathetic and childish says this grandfather - well past my sell by date. .
