Oxford United 1-1 Cheltenham Town

Oxford United's promotion push suffered a blow after Jamie Cureton's late goal rescued a point for Cheltenham.

The U's dominated for the first hour with David Connolly, James Constable, Ryan Williams and Josh Ruffels all going close for the hosts.

Oxford winger Williams charged through to open the scoring from 15 yards after latching onto a defensive error.

Cheltenham levelled after Cureton deflected Zack Kotwica's shot past Ryan Clarke and they held on for a point.

The U's have now gone five games without a win as their automatic promotion hopes continue to fade.

Cheltenham Town manager Mark Yates told BBC Gloucestershire:

"We created a few problems of our own with a few scrambles at the end.

"I'm a bit disappointed we didn't get more from the game, as we had a couple of really good chances in the second half.

"But we showed a lot of character to come back against a decent side.

"We've come back and got something out of it when we could have dropped and faded away."
