OXFORD City came from behind to beat Oxford United 3-1 and book their place in the Oxfordshire Senior Cup semi-finals.

A young U’s side were ahead early on through Jonte Smith, but that was as good as it got for the visitors.

Craig Fasanmade scored one goal and his shot made another for Kyran Wiltshire to put City ahead by half-time.

And the defending champions, who beat the U’s last season, made sure of victory when Brandon Thomas-Asante scored late on to set up a meeting with North Leigh in the last four.

Owen James and Albie Hopkins faced City three days after joining them on loan and the former set up the opening goal in the 11th minute.

The young winger crossed low from the right and Smith was on hand to tap in from close range.

United netted despite having only ten men, with Freddie Niblett off the field receiving treatment for an injury which forced him off.

City hit back and levelled in the 27th minute.

The U’s defence stopped to appeal for an offside from Brandon Thomas-Asante’s pass, but it allowed Craig Fasanmade to race clear and slot past Jack Stevens.

City goalkeeper Craig King turned Smith’s shot round the post to keep the scores level and in first-half stoppage-time the hosts took the lead.

Fasanmade got the better of Matt Berry-Hargreaves in the U’s box and although his low shot was kept out by Stevens, it fell for Kyran Wiltshire to convert from a couple of yards.

City looked the more likely to score after the break, but United had two golden opportunities 18 minutes from time when King spilled a corner.

Nico Jones’s follow-up hit the crossbar and on the rebound Smith’s header was blocked on the line by Eddie Jones.

City made the game safe in the 83rd minute, when Thomas-Asante rolled a shot into the net after Stevens had smothered an opening for substitute Kabongo Tshimanga.
