REPORT Swindon Town U18 1 Oxford United U18 1

Tiamuna goal gives U's a point

31 January 2022

Oxford United’s Under 18s came away with a point after a draw at Swindon Town on Saturday in the Youth Alliance League.

A good finish from a tight angle from Enrique Tiamuna put the U’s ahead and they could have doubled their lead through Gatlin O’Donkor, who just couldn’t apply the finishing touch to a difficult chance.

However Swindon were allowed back into the game after a misunderstanding in the box led to the ball being fired past Fraser Barnsley to make it 1-1

In a game of few chances Josh Johnson could have grabbed a late winner but Coach Chris Hackett told us

“The boys showed a good mentality and togetherness in some poor conditions. A game against Swindon is always going to have an edge and we had enough chances to win the game but one mix-up was all they needed to get back into it.

“Overall, I think we played well. We played quite a young squad today, mainly first years and under-16s. I was impressed with how they adapted to the conditions and it was a good bit of experience for them heading into the last few games of the season.”

Line-up:
Barnsley, Maxwell, Sankoh, Anifowose, Franklin, Zabeli, Smith, Tiamuna, O’Donkor, Coe, Davis-Stephenson (60’ - Josh Johnson)

Subs:
Gerrard, Giles, Took-Oxley, Brearey
