Crawley's unbeaten run extended to 11 matches as they easily beat Oxford.

Tyrone Barnett scored with a low shot before Pablo Mills hit the bar with an overhead kick and Barnett then headed a second as the hosts dominated early on.

But James Constable pulled a goal back when he rolled the ball into an empty net after a Crawley defensive mix-up.

However, Crawley scored twice more as Andy Drury fired in a third with a low, angled shot before Dean Howell sealed the victory with a 20-yard free-kick.
