Craddock double stuns Vale

Tom Craddock struck twice as Oxford ended league leaders Port Vale's fantastic run of form with a 2-1 win.And the striker's winner came in dramatic fashion in stoppage time, just a minute after Gareth Owen had snatched an equaliser that had looked like bringing Micky Adams' men a point.The Valiants were bidding for a seventh successive win but they were stopped in their tracks first by Craddock's 61st-minute header in a thrilling encounter at the Kassam Stadium.Running in from deep the former Luton striker planted an eight-yard header past Stuart Tomlinson and into the far corner of the goal.However, as the game entered injury time, centre back Owen popped up in the area to drive in a leveller from 15 yards.But Vale's joy at that goal almost immediately turned to disappointment as substitute Matt Green touched a pass to his left and Craddock coolly slotted home his second - and the winner.
