DAN Agyei insisted Oxford United felt no pressure as they fought back to beat Shrewsbury Town and take the play-off race to the final day of the season.

The forward struck with five minutes left to seal a third straight 3-2 win at Montgomery Waters Meadow for Karl Robinson’s side.

It kept seventh-placed United a point behind Portsmouth heading into the last round of matches in Sky Bet League One on Sunday.

The verdict: Oxford United's win at Shrewsbury summed up rollercoaster season

But the U’s season was less than half an hour from being over, as they trailed 2-1 until James Henry equalised midway through the second half.

United poured forward in the closing stages and won it through Agyei, who thought they were worthy winners.

He said: “Once Jamo scored the momentum shifted.

“We started to attack them more and you could see that if we kept putting pressure on them we could score.

“We’re the sort of team that doesn’t stop fighting and we got rewarded for it.

“We knew we had a big 45 minutes and we thought we would play without pressure.”

United led through Elliot Lee’s third-minute goal, only for Shrewsbury’s Matthew Pennington and Josh Vela to strike before the break.

The U’s took time to find their feet again, but the comeback sparked memories of their previous visit to Shropshire last March.

That day, Agyei equalised and Josh Ruffels headed a late winner to send the away end barmy – a sight sorely missed this season.

Agyei said: “If the fans were there it would have been electric.

“It’s a shame they weren’t, but we’ve done a lot of people proud.”

The goal continued a fine run of form for the 23-year-old, who had only been on the pitch eight minutes.

U’s head coach Karl Robinson said: “I told him I’m proud of what you’ve done in the last six months.

“He has matured as a young person and as a young footballer, and now he’s understanding the roles and responsibilities in and out of possession.

"He needs to understand and appreciate what he has, because if he does he’s some player.”
