OXFORD City shared the points with Weston-super-Mare in a 3-3 thriller last night that saw both sides finish with ten men.

Hosts City trailed 1-0 and 2-1 before going 3-2 ahead in the Vanarama National League South clash, but they could not hold on for victory.

Dayle Grubb fired the visitors ahead after just two minutes.

But City levelled on 14 when Rob Sinclair’s ball found Godfrey Poku, who fired home from the edge of the box.

City were then handed a big boost when Aden Baldwin was shown a straight red card after hauling down Matt Paterson, who was in on goal.

But they could not take advantage, and it was Weston who claimed the next goal, Grubb firing home a free-kick from 25 yards five minutes before the break.

City drew level when Reece Fleet lashed home a half-volley on 54 minutes.

And it was ten against ten for the final 15 minutes when Freddie Grant collected a second booking.

Zac McEachran’s screamer just two minutes later put City on track for all three points.

But Tristan Plummer crossed for Irnti Rapai to make it 3-3 with 11 minutes remaining.

City keeper Jack Stevens secured a point after making a superb stop to deny Jacob Crane in the last minute.

Oxford City: Stevens, Oxlade-Chamberlain (Hirst 54), Grant, Poku, Navarro (Henderson HT (Jones 65)), Oastler, McEachran, Fleet, Paterson, Sinclair, Pearce. Subs not used: Forde, Bennett.

Attendance: 125.

Banbury United suffered a second successive defeat in the Evo-Stik South League Premier Division.

Mike Ford’s side, who won their opening five league games, were beaten 3-1 at home by Redditch United.

The visitors took the lead in 24th minute when Dior Angus netted.

And they doubled their advantage seven minutes later through Spencer Weir-Daley.

To compound a disappointing night for Banbury, visiting substitute Danico Johnson had only been on the field two minutes when hitting No 3 with 15 minutes to go.

Jefferson Louis netted in the third minute of injury time for Banbury.
