Ball breaks down the left with Crawford, into Weir, shoots, deflects for a corner.

Better corner, we keep the pressure on, ref gives a free kick to Oxford.

5+ injury time to go.

Oxford win a corner from a blocked cross on the right.

Headed over by Oxford.

Buckley wins a free kick 10 yards in the Oxford half, defenders go up. Ball finds it way out on the left with Chicksen.

Ball goes out for a throw in.

Long punt by Oxford, Remi Matthews comes out to head it clear. Great play.

Nerves are shot to shit, playing on fumes.

Remi Matthews comes accross to gather a ball.

Wright with a last ditch challenge stops a sure goal.

Full Time - 0-0

What a game. Absolute belter to watch.

If that's an example of what is to come then we're in for a treat. Some of the football in the 1st half was outstanding.

-10 points.

"Good effort" says Marc Iles......I'd give it a bit more that than. A draw and a point.....Well done lads. Great show..... :oyea: :oyea:

Sounds really encouraging that. Good to hear we defended when we had to, and created some chances. Sounds like Hill learned lessons from Saturday. Yes :oyea:

That's more like it! Shame they couldn't nick one but cracking response to Saturday's drubbing by all accounts. Just the sort of character needed.

Absolutely. Some really encouraging stuff by the sounds of it.

The matchday / evening experience is definitely a more fraught affair when relying on Livescore and DJBlu's snippets as opposed to actually being there, I've just found. :D

Just noticed unbeaten Coventry are top. Makes that other point look even better. Fortress Unibol!

BBC stats

Home 46% Away 54%

Shots
Home 15 Away 19

Shots on Target
Home 5 Away 5

Corners
Home 6 Away 8

Fouls
Home 12 Away 15

I'd say a draw was a fair result.

From back to front was such an improvement compared to Saturday.
