Match Report

Cup game

Oxford City versus Portsmouth in the Community.  Oxford City welcomed Portsmouth to Marsh Lane with weather conditions perfect. Portsmouth started the game very strongly and dominated the early exchanges and were unlucky to go behind from a breakaway Oxford City goal early on.  The lead was very short lived though and within a minute Portsmouth had deservedly equalised following some excellent work from the centre forward. Portsmouth continued to be the more the threatening team and eventually forced Oxford City to make some tactical changes to counter them.  The game became more even and had a nice ebb and flow now with both sides enjoying periods of possession and creating opportunities.  Oxford City managed to captalise on one of these chances to take the lead. (HT 2-1).  The second half was again well contested with maybe Oxford City just edging territory and possession now but still a game very much in the balance.  Both teams though had good opportunities to score which were thwarted by some excellent defending which saw the ball cleared to safety when a goal looked certain.  No goals were added in the second half but it was still an entertaining game right up to the last minute when a Portsmouth freekick saw the away goalkeeper join the attack as the away team tried to force the game to go to penalties. (FT 2-1).  An enjoyable game today against a footballing side that were a credit to their club both on and off the pitch.  We wish Portsmouth all the best for the remainder of the season and hope we get the opportunity to play them again next season at some point.
