Motormen find the going heavy
MOTORS were undone by three second-half goals as they fell to defeat away at Marsh Lane.
It was a tight first half with few chances as the heavy conditions made it difficult to play free-flowing football.
City managed to break the deadlock after 53 minutes courtesy of Andy Ballard.
The Oxford skipper rifled home a loose ball after the Motors' defence failed to clear the danger following a corner.
They extended their advantage two minutes later when Mike Symons gained possession with his back to goal before spinning round to curl an exquisite shot into the corner of the net.
And Oxford made it three goals in 10 minutes when Kayden Jackson took advantage of some slack marking to seal the victory on 63 minutes.
After, boss Carl Macauley said: "The game was tough as the pitch was a mud bath, which did not suit us as we try to play football on the deck.
"They deserved the win and got the rub of the green for the first goal."
On Saturday Motors host Bradford Park Avenue (3pm).
