Wood­ley knocked out

Ox­ford City No­mads 3 Wood­ley United 1

The Wokingham Paper - - FOOTBALL -

JAMES TEN­NANT’S early goal was not enough to pre­vent Wood­ley from ex­it­ing the FA Vase at the first qual­i­fy­ing round stage.

It was an open game from the off be­tween the two Hellenic Premier sides with Ox­ford’s Jack Tut­ton see­ing an early shot saved be­fore Ten­nant missed at the other end.

But the Kestrels striker, dual reg­is­tered with Hart­ley Wint­ney, did not wait long to break the dead­lock, round­ing goal­keeper Ben Turner and rolling into the empty net af­ter just five min­ues.

Nathanael Robin­son was de­nied a sec­ond goal by Turner and No­mads lev­elled on 23 min­utes as Jordi Mul­vaney poached from close range.

And the tie turned on its head on the half hour mark when Sami Khawaja out­paced the de­fence and tucked past Alex Reed.

Ten­nant was look­ing like Wood­ley’s chief threat, but Ox­ford added a third late on cour­tesy of sub­sti­tute Henry Lan­ders to se­cure vic­tory.

Michael Her­bert’s men, who have Pic­ture: Rich Clay­pole won just once in all com­pe­ti­tions this sea­son, make the same trip to take on Ox­ford again this Satur­day (3pm), this time for league points.

WOOD­LEY: Reed, Green­wood (Prestidge 64), Turner, Ni­chols, I. Ka­mara, Bar­ley, Drew (Hinds 74), Ledger, Ten­nant, Horscroft, Robin­son (White 82).

James Ten­nant put Wood­ley ahead early on but it was not enough and the No­mads knocked them out of the FA Vase
