OXFORD United Under 21s were beaten 2-0 by visitors AFC Bournemouth.

Luke McNally and Ben Watt formed one half of the back line after joining the first-team set-up over the Easter weekend, while Michael Elechi, Tyler Goodrham, Leon Chambers-Parillon and Dylan Asonganyi also featured.

Christian Saydee put Bournemouth ahead just after the half-hour mark, before Callum Crook saw an effort cleared off the line.

U’s goalkeeper Eddie Brearey was called into action several times, but could not stop Saydee firing home a loose ball with 13 minutes left.
