Ducks Slip to Defeat At Oxford

Oxford City 3-1 Ducks Aylesbury's long unbeaten record was finally broken at Oxford City this afternoon.

The Ducks were the better side in the first half, and rather harshly trailed 2-1 at the interval. But they can have no complaints at the result after a disappointing second half, never reaching the same heights again.

Chris Marsh netted his first in Aylesbury colours to level the match midway through the first half, after the Ducks had slipped to concede a goal after just six minutes.

A rare mistake from Nick Leach allowed Oxford a third in the second half, and that was game over - for all their hard work Aylesbury were kept at bay well by their more illustrious opponents, and their FA Trophy campaign is at an end for another season.

Worryingly two key Aylesbury players picked up knocks ahead of the massive game with Sutton next week, Mark Jones and Sam Swonnell both forced out with injuries.

A full report from the game is now available via the Fixtures page.
