OXFORD City are two wins from Wembley after they reached the quarter-finals of the Buildbase FA Trophy with a 2-0 win over Peterborough Sports, WRITES JACK SALE.

Goals from James Roberts and Reece Fleet either side of half-time were enough to see the hosts progress to the last eight for the first time in their history.

City started the fifth round tie brighter and had their first clear-cut chance ten minutes in.

After the Pitching In Southern League Premier Central outfit failed to deal with a corner, Harvey Bradbury swivelled on the loose ball in the penalty area, but his effort went way over the bar.

Five minutes later, City felt they should have had a penalty.

Alfie Potter was brought down, but the referee gave a free-kick on the edge of the area instead.

Josh Ashby’s resulting free kick was deflected for a corner and from that City took the lead.

Peterborough failed to fully deal with the delivery and the ball eventually found its way to Roberts, who delightfully curled in from just outside the box.

City remained in charge but failed to add to their lead before the break.

They did double their lead, though, in the opening minutes of the second half.

It was more good work from Roberts, this time turning provider for Reece Fleet who struck beyond the keeper.

Roberts had a late chance to double his tally and cap a fine afternoon’s work, but he was denied by a good save from the Peterborough Sports keeper Lewis Moat.

The quarter-final draw will take place on Monday at 1.30pm, with ties to be played on Saturday, March 27.
