Oxford Utd 3-0 Exeter- Match Report

Oxford up to second in League Two after winOxford turned on the style in the second half to beat Exeter 3-0 at the Kassam Stadium and move second in League Two.Superb strikes from John Lundstram and George Baldock were added to by a late third goal from Liam Sercombe against his old club.The Grecians had been defending well but in the 48th minute goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik was powerless to keep out Lundstram's brilliantly-placed side-footed shot from 25 yards after her was set up by Alex MacDonald.Kemar Roofe almost added a second 10 minutes later with a stabbed shot after a slick one-two with Sercombe.Then after 67 minutes right-back Baldock hammered in a second with a low 20-yard shot that took a slight deflection to bounce over the diving Olejnik's arms.And in the 89th minute, Sercombe ran through and chipped the goalkeeper to make it 3-0.Exeter gave as good as they got in the first half, with Sam Slocombe saving low to his right from Ollie Watkins after great work by Tom Nichols.Oxford centre-back Chey Dunkley, having just been booked for a foul, was lucky not to see red with a late challenge on Watkins before the break, and some Exeter players were incensed at the ref's leniency
