Oxford Utd 2 (Johnson 51, Constable 80), Dagenham & Redbridge 1 (Arber 72)

Banbury Cake: Scott Rendell in action on his Oxford debut Scott Rendell in action on his Oxford debut

James Constable scored for the first time in 2012 as Oxford United secured a vital three points at home to Dagenham.

But Chris Wilder's side made hard work of securing their first home win since before Christmas.

After a dire first half, Oli Johnson headed the U's in front six minutes after half-time.

But after Scott Rendell had missed a glorious opportunity to double the lead, the Daggers equalised when Mark Arber was left unmarked at the far post.

The visitors almost went ahead when Adam Cunnington hit the outside of a post, but Constable went through with ten minutes left to drill home the winner.

When Johnson scored six minutes after the break you thought Oxford would go on and take the three points against their relegation-threatened opponents.

But they were forced to do things the hard way.

Liam Davis started the move for Johnson's goal.

The left back surged forward and was shown down the line by Spillane.

He had no hesitation in accepting, going past the defender and putting in a great ball that was met by the head of Johnson who scored on his first start.

However, Oxford were again made to pay for failing to get the second goal when Arber levelled 18 minutes from time.

Davis needlessly gave the ball away, and was saved by a superb tackle from Jake Wright, who timed his slide to perfection to keep out Nurse's attempt on goal.

From the corner, however, a cross from substitue Medy Elito - who had only just come on - found Arber in acres of space and his header gave Clarke no chance.

Wilder had sent on Swindon loanee Mehdi Kerrouche with 11 minutes remaining, and he played a big part in the goal.

Kerrouche held the ball up well, Johnson played it on and Constable fired home at the near post.

Both sides had been without a game for more than a fortnight - and with four new faces in the U's squad, the early stages were poor.

Johnson lined up on the right of the three-man front line, Rendell in the middle, with Constable pushed out to the left.

Kerrouche was on the bench, alongside Lee Holmes, who was only signed earlier that day on loan from Southampton.

Mark Wilson made his debut in midfield, with Asa Hall replacing Simon Heslop, who was not in the 16 after picking up a heel injury.

The opening 25 minutes was littered with misplaced passes and from Oxford's point of view, new players trying to find their feet.

The only noteworthy incident in that period was a backpass from Scott Doe that sold keeper Chris Lewington short, and he had to be quick to clear the danger from the onrushing Constable.

United should have gone ahead in the 26th minute however.

Some great play from Rendell saw him play in the ball behind the Dagenham defence, and Asa Hall ghosted in, headed down, but then shot wide when under pressure.

He should have done better.

Rendell's header from a free-kick was then saved, before at the other end Micky Spillane shot high and wide from the edge of the box when United's defence were slow to close him down.

But after that flurry of activity - all five minutes of it - we went back to the misplaced passes and a lack of creativity.

The first time a goalkeeper was tested came in the 42nd minute, when Ryan Clarke had to get down well to keep out Billy Bingham's 20-yard effort.

The half-time whistle brought a sprinkling of boos, and Wilder made his feelings known by sending out the players early for the second half.

And he also changed the system, bringing on Holmes for Hall and switching to a 4-4-2 formation.

United started the second half well, winning two quick corners.

And from a Davis's surge, they took the lead thanks to Johnson's fine header.

They had a scare in the 58th minute, however, when Arber's header from a corner was cleared off his own line by Constable.

Oxford then had a great chance to double their lead when from Johnson's terrific ball over the top, Rendell was sent clear.

With the Dagenham defence looking for offside, the loanee bore down on goal, cut inside, but over-ran the ball and Lewington gathered.

It was a golden opportunity wasted.

Constable then shot high and wide from the edge of the box as United turned up the pressure - but they needed the second goal.

Holmes looked lively down the right, and put in a number of good crosses.

Clarke had to once again be alert when Jon Nurse was left unmarked at the far post, but United's keeper easily kept out his header.

Arber's goal looked as though it might deny United victory, before Cunnington's strike beat Clarke but rebounded off a post and behind.

But Constable had the final word, his strike giving United a vital three points that keeps them in that final play-off place.

Oxford Utd: 4-3-3 - Clarke; Whing, Duberry, Wright, Davis; Hall (Holmes 46), Wilson, Leven; Johnson (Tonkin 83), Rendell (Kerrouche 79), Constable. Subs: Worley, McLaren.

Dagenham: 4-5-1 -: Lewington; Spillane, Doe, Arber, Ilesanmi; Nurse, Ogogo, Saunders, Bingham (Cunnington 56), Green (Elito 68); Scott (Reed 85). Subs:Hogan; Rose.

Your predictions are as accurate as those from Man Dater - he is not very good either. He claimed our season would end a couple of weeks ago, he was wrong as well.

Swindonites, a big big thank you to all connected with swindon town. We wouldn't have won tonight if it wasn't for the instant impact Kerrouche made when he came on. A few class touches and "massive massive sweendon fan" was on his way.... Never thought I'd hear myself shouting out "THANK YOU SWINDON" but I couldn't help myself after that winner.
.
....I think I now prefer your version of events. You made a bid for Constable that was accepted, but you (out of chronic indecision) changed your minds. Fools....
.
Congrats on your victory today. Looks like you'll be straight up, quite possibly as champions. But seeing as you seem to have turned all friendly on us, any chance of letting Kerrouche play for us on 3rd March? Oh go on, please. Pleeeeeeeeze? xx

You can only beat what's in front of you. 23rd or not D+R still had a good go and we over came them. Both Oxford and Swindon picked up 3 points and both teams still sit in the play offs.

Seeing as so many Swindon fans choose to use this forum I'll ask them the question - what would you prefer, an automatic spot or the chance to meet Oxford in a play off final? Personally I'd much prefer the latter for Oxford.

Well at least we won. Played 442 as well for a bit, has Wilder seen the light?

Another good win for the red noses too. Is that 7 on the bounce? Impressive. Mind you, all runs come to an end sooner or later, maybe it'll be against us.

Well as you Pox fans will now realise that all Swindon players are better than what you have which is why Kerrouche set up the winner for you.

Well we beat the creepy Crawlies convincingly 3-0 again the secont time this season and if i remember you lot saying they wer the best side in the league well they got swept aside last night and as usual their vile managers who was constantly in the face of the fourth official constantly out of his technical box and appealing to the ref for every decision and having a go at Caddis and Ritchie in the first half is a total disgrace to football and his bully boy tactic didnt work as the best football side won and it could have been five or six.

Were warming up for the 3rd March so make the most of Kerrouche as he's getting his fitness back to come back for us. So arent we lovely neighbours letting you borrow one of our players to get him fit and then take him back unless you have some money to buy him? which i doubt.

Don't see why that's a silly question.

If someone offered me an Oxford automatic spot or an Oxford vs Swindon playoff final I'd choose the playoff final any day of the week.

It'd make one heck of a day out and certainly raise the profile of both clubs, given that Wembley would be packed out. Loath each other as much as we do, I still get more annoyed when my WBA friends and Man U friends and Liverpool friends state that Oxford and Swindon isn't the most passionate of rivalries. A playoff final would prove them wrong!

And also because Oxford would win :-)

I think we would all love a big stage but it doesn't do both teams really the service. What we need in all reality is both teams to be in the Championship.
To do that your chairman must support his manager more. I know you are injury stricken right now, and loans are the only sensible option until revenue allows more permanent signings, but you need a bigger squad to become successful which is what we now have in place.
The other side of the coin is that you MUST remain debt free, as both our clubs have seen the downside of the spend, spend, spend culture. If other clubs such as Accrington and Cheltenham and even Creepie Crawley can do it on low gates then your guys should be able to fashion something as well.

We have not spent as much as most think on our team, but what is the price of staying in L2 for yet another season. Promotion brings with it many benefits, such as TV money and sponsorship deals etc, and it is all about future planning, and we have been lucky in so much as our board have supported the club and the manager in the solid way they have. PDC called for support last night and we got a big gate for a Tuesday, say what you like about him, but the passion has come through to the supporters in a way that we never thought possible, and we DO support him as well as our players. Last night we did our bit and wound Evans up with songs and chants from all around the ground. Perhaps you guys should try it, it keeps you warm, its enjoyable, and it put him to the shame he deserves and that is a result on its own, and that is one thing that unites supporters from all the clubs in this league, the despise and hate for Steve Evans, a nasty piece of work.

What twaddle and you know it. If you read and believe what that Fat Evans says more fool you. Horses mouth - the bloke is covering his arse, and for want of better words talking out of it too.

You can go back in the past if that blows your whistle (was it 0-1, hardly a thrashing is it ?) - I would suggest dropping that theme if I was you.

We tend to look forward, as you can do something about that.

look BOY, every side we come up against look bad, because we keep beating them. We beat Sarfend in our last league game 1-4 in their own back yard, I suppose they were bad as well.

Believe me boy, the way we play can destroy the confidence of any team. And its the same Sarfend thats above you in the league. We have played them 3 times this season, and won all 3. 3-0 at home 1-4 away and also in the JPT. Your confidence will also be destroyed in March. You must be dreading it, and if you are not, you should be.

Highworth,

I was in the middle of Witney today with a load of old work buddies who are OU supporters.
Old enough to know a bit about footie, and they are very honest blokes and said how well STFC are playing. They were monitoring our scoreline last night and after seeing Kerrouche lay on the winner for them they are now puzzled as to how we can let someone this useful go to them. Had one of them on the phone this evening and he rated all our goals. These guys are under no illusions as to how well we are playing and are NOT looking forward to our visit due to reasons various, including their injury list, which is regrettable.

I am in NO doubt at the moment Swindon are playing better than us and playing good stuff so YES they will go into the game as Fav's BUT a lot of Football played before then.

Also the ONLY thing we get or you get for winning is 3 points and a little bit of bragging BUT as I have said on here before

Sing in MAY when the trophies are dished out then, NOT in FEB MARCH or APRIL!!!

we are simply smashing all before us, even ox fans can see this, well those who wish not to stick their heads in the sand. My lad goes to school in Witney and wears his Town shirt during P.E, winds up a couple of ox fans every time. I saw a chap one morning walking past Witney Relics (think thats what the shop is called) wearing a Town rain coat, wasn't you was it? cant be too many Town fans in Witney.
