Craddock goalrush continues in U's victory

Tom Craddock grabbed his fifth goal in three games to help Oxford to just their second League Two away win of the season as they beat fellow strugglers Wycombe 3-1.

The 26-year-old striker, who scored four last weekend at Accrington, set up the first for James Constable before firing past Nikki Bull at the start of the second-half.

Joel Grant instantly pulled one back from the penalty spot but Johnny Mullins headed in a third for the U's for their first league win on the road since August.

Oxford went ahead after just four minutes when Constable combined with Craddock before unleashing a fierce half-volley into the bottom corner of the net for his first league goal of the campaign.

Constable then saw a goal ruled out for offside before Craddock, who drew a blank in midweek, smashed a long ball past Bull less than a minute into the second half.

The Wycombe response was instant with Constable fouling player-manager Gareth Ainsworth in the box and Grant tucking the penalty home.

Mullins snuffed out the revival though when he headed home Sean Rigg's cross on 62 minutes.
