Torquay 1-3 Oxford Utd

James Constable

James Constable was on target as Oxford United maintained their perfect start to the season with victory at Torquay.

Deane Smalley put the visitors ahead just after half-time when he flicked home Danny Rose's cross.

Callum Ball then rattled the crossbar for the home side, only for substitute Constable to latch on to a long goal kick and double Oxford's lead.

Jordan Chapell tapped in for the Gulls, but Asa Hall restored Oxford's two-goal cushion at the second time of asking.
