John Lundstram
John Lundstram put Oxford in front in their victory over Exeter

Oxford moved up to second in League Two as second-half goals from John Lundstram, George Baldock and Liam Sercombe saw off Exeter.

Lundstram opened the scoring with a placed strike from distance after latching onto Alex MacDonald's pass.

Oxford made it 2-0 when Baldock's driven effort took a deflection past goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik.

Sercombe broke through late on and chipped over Olejnik to secure the win against his former club.
