Fleetwood Town 1-1 Oxford United

Dave Kitson

Dave Kitson's late header rescued a point for Oxford at Fleetwood as the U's stayed top of League Two and kept their unbeaten away league record.

Steven Schumacher opened the scoring when his curling free-kick found the far corner of the U's net.

Danny Rose missed a great chance to level when his penalty was saved after Mark Roberts had fouled Kitson.

But the visitors were not to be denied a point as Kitson's last-gasp header found the bottom corner.

Oxford are now a point above their nearest promotion rivals, while Fleetwood drop two places to seventh.
