Friday, 2nd April 2021, 5:46 pm

Oxford United took an early lead before Lynden Gooch levelled the scores following a superb assist by Jordan Jones.

And the second half was full of action with the visitors having a man sent off.

Then Aiden McGeady put the Black Cats ahead after a quick free-kick whilst the U’s had a player down – much to Karl Robinson’s dismay!
