Both sides were showing some cobwebs from the Christmas break and although flashes of good play emerged it rarely led to clear cut chances, although Arthur Jones in goal for Hawks was kept busy but rarely troubled.

A dogged battle in midfield saw Tom Gilman and Will Smith take the upper hand but Hawks shape looked disjointed and a lack of communication did not enable the hard fought possession to cause a solid Oxford defence to be caught on the turn or put into any panic.

Dan Evans was again providing his trade-mark drives from right half and linking well with Alex Bush and Freddie Honeyman during the best spell for Hawks. This led to the award of several short corners but again the Oxford defence showed maturity and calmness when clearing their lines.

The second half saw a similar pattern but as Hawks rotated the players with a better understanding they were able to create several clear chances but the Oxford keeper kept his goal free form the threat.

Jones was then called upon to make the save of the game as Hawks were caught on the break from a clear open space in the right channel found the Oxford player clear through but Jones kept it 0-0.

Hawks and Oxford then both found the back of the net but earlier infringements meant the goals would not stand.

With minutes to go Dan Evans clinched the Man of the Match as he drove down the right channel withy pace evading several lunging challenges and as finally Hawks got behind the Oxford defence his pull back to O J Webb was finished with aplomb.

Hawks then held out for a tough but deserved 1-0 win.
