The Oxford Mail player ratings following Oxford United's 1-1 draw at Accrington Stanley in League One.

Simon Eastwood – 7

Made a fine save low to his left to deny Joe Pritchard moments before the equaliser. Also made a decent stop during the first half after a scramble in the box.

Djavan Anderson – 6.5

Made an important clearance with Mitch Clark waiting at the far post during the first half. Also created a big chance for Taylor after the break.

Elliott Moore – 6.5

Had a chance to open the scoring from a set-piece but his header took a deflection and bounced wide.

Stuart Findlay – 6.5

Defended resiliently along with Moore to deal with the direct threat posed by the hosts at times, particularly from Doug Tharme’s long throws.

Ciaron Brown – 7

Made the most of his opportunities to get forward and also won his fair share of tackles and headers.

Lewis Bate – 6.5

Unlucky not to open the scoring during the early stages, hitting the bar with a curling effort that had Toby Savin beaten in the Stanley goal.

Marcus McGuane – 6

Kept the ball well and allowed midfield partners Bate and Brannagan to have more freedom to join the attack at times.

Cameron Brannagan – 6.5

Won back possession in the middle of the pitch on several occasions before he was replaced by Josh Murphy 15 minutes from time.

James Henry – 7

Managed to get himself in the right place to score and has now found the net twice in his last three matches.

Matty Taylor – 6

Missed a golden opportunity early in the second half after getting on the end of Anderson’s low cross, failing to keep his strike down.

Marcus Browne – 7

Brilliant play to win the ball back in the Accrington half and set up the opener with an inviting cut-back.
