THE result at Hillsborough gave Oxford United a boost for the second weekend running.

Seven days after losing 2-1 to the U’s, Sheffield Wednesday were back at home to beat Bolton Wanderers 1-0 in Sky Bet League One.

It saw United – whose trip to Sunderland was postponed due to international call-ups – move above Wanderers into seventh, thanks to a superior goal difference.

Lee Gregory’s second-half strike was enough to put Wednesday level on 18 points with the U’s.

Elsewhere, the other game that could have affected United went their way.

Plymouth Argyle went top of League One with a 2-1 home win over Burton Albion, who would have gone above United with victory.

Conor Grant opened the scoring after 15 minutes and Ryan Broom swept in the Pilgrims’ second just before half time.

Lucas Akins pulled a goal back for the visitors, but they could not find a leveller and sit 10th.

Argyle visit the Kassam Stadium next Saturday in the U's next game.

Wycombe Wanderers are second in the table after beating Gillingham 2-0, Garath McCleary and Brandon Hanlan scoring inside the opening seven minutes.

Meanwhile, Ipswich Town climbed to 14th with a 2-1 triumph over fellow strugglers Shrewsbury Town.

Conor Chaplin’s 23rd-minute opener was cancelled out by Shaun Whalley’s quickfire reply, before Macauley Bonne scored the winner early in the second half.
