Us make Pirates walk the plank

Forster-Caskey fired the visitors in front with a brilliant

curling shot from the corner of the box after 21 minutes and Potter

doubled the lead with a low finish after cutting in from the left

11 minutes later.

Rovers improved marginally after the break but lacked the

penetration to break down a well-organised visiting defence and

there were few anxious moments for Oxford goalkeeper Ryan


Home boss Mark McGhee threw on an extra forward in Eliot

Richards five minutes after the break, but his best efforts came

from distance and never troubled Clarke.

Oxford passed the ball more sharply without creating many clear

chances themselves and looked an efficient unit.

Rovers barely managed a worthwhile first-half effort and when

Joe Anyinsah did head home after 16 minutes the flag was already up

for offside.
