Oxford strike back for late point in six-goal thriller against Coventry

Oxford equalised in the fourth minute of stoppage time to earn a point from a thrilling 3-3 Sky Bet League One draw with Coventry.

Zain Westbrooke opened the scoring for the visitors and Matty Godden had given the Sky Blues a two-goal cushion early in the second half.

Westbrooke planted a 25-yard free-kick just inside Simon Eastwood’s left post after 35 minutes.

And Godden headed in Frankaty Dabo’s cross on a blistering counter-attack after 56 minutes after Ben Woodburn saw his brilliant left-footed volley from outside the box smash against the post.

But nine minutes later Jamie Mackie hit a left-footed shot around goalkeeper Marko Marosi to pull one back for the U’s.

And five minutes from time the home side were level when Dabo turned Chris Cadden’s cross into his own goal.

City regained the lead in injury time with a fierce strike against the underside of the crossbar by substiutute Callum O’Hare.

But Elliot Moore then dramatically struck Tariqe Fosu’s low cross, which Dabo unfortunately turned home for his second own goal of the game to make it honours even.
