Oxford United went down 4-3 at home but positives will have come out of this for the gaffer Pep Clotet.

The U’s were rocked in the 8th minute when no1 goalkeeper had to go off with a shoulder injury. Just 1 minute later Scott Shearer was taking the ball out of the back of his net for his first touch.

It looks like Pep is starting to get a feel for his team and decided not to use all of his subs available.

Oxford Utd: Eastwood (Shearer 8), Ribeiro (Carroll 70), Nelson, Martin (Raglan 78), Johnson (Hanley 65), Henry (Napa 78), Rothwell (Ruffels 75), Ledson, Hall, Thomas, Hemmings (Shaban 63).

Unused subs: Baptiste, Kelleher, Roberts, Smile.

Brentford: Daniels, Daalsgard, Bjelland, Dean, Henry, Sawyers, McEachran, Woods, Jota, Vibe, Josefzoon.

Subs: Colin, Bentley, Egan, Clarke, Barbet, Canos, Field, Shaibu, Cole, Onariase.

Attendance: 2,216 (376 visitors).
