Oxford City got what they deserved against Histon on Saturday, according to assistant manager Stuart Peace, writes MATTHEW BRUCE.

City snatched a draw with a late equaliser from Felipe Barcelos, but Peace felt that any other result would have been unfair.

He said: “I think over the course of the 90 minutes we actually deserved a point.

“They had a spell of five or ten minutes in the second half when they scored, but other than that it was very even and certainly in the last 15 minutes we were the better side.

“We looked the more likely team in the end to win it.”

And Peace was impressed with the way City dealt with a Histon side boasting a reputation for neat passing football.

“We knew they were a passing side and they keep the ball for long periods,” Peace added.

“But we had a big side out today and we felt we could cause them problems from set-plays.

“As it turned out we probably caused them more problems when we came out and played a bit more.”
