Conor McAleny's stoppage-time strike sinks Oxford

Conor McAleny struck a stunning stoppage-time winner for Fleetwood as they won 1-0 at Oxford.
McAleny, who was on loan at the Kassam Stadium last season, came off the bench in the second half and cut in from the left and hammered a ferocious 25-yard drive over keeper Simon Eastwood.
The defeat was a sickener for the U's, who remain just five points above the relegation zone, but they again lacked a cutting edge up front.
And the U's have still not managed to beat Fleetwood in eight attempts.
Eastwood came to their rescue with two superb saves in quick succession in the second half.
He saved with his feet from Bobby Grant following a poor backpass by John Mousinho, then acrobatically turned aside Kyle Dempsey's drive.
Oxford edged the first half with Ricardinho providing inspiration down the left.
Alex Mowatt went close with an 18-yard drive, and Alex Cairns tipped over a header from Wes Thomas.
Later, Thomas almost scored with a jinking run and shot that Cairns turned around his post but it was McAleny who decided it.
