Wes Thomas scored a brilliant centre-forward’s goal as Oxford United carried on from where they left off last week by beating AFC Wimbledon at the Kassam Stadium.Playing on his own up front, Thomas took Jack Payne’s pass in his stride after 12 minutes and bamboozled the Dons’ two centre-halves before firing a low left-footed drive past goalkeeper George Long from 18 yards.Thomas had also opened the scoring for Oxford in their stunning 4-1 win at Peterborough the previous Saturday.

The U’s made it two when James Henry’s right-wing cross was just too high for Thomas, but Brazilian left-back Ricardinho lashed the ball home for his first goal for the club.Substitute Xemi Fernandez made it 3-0 from close range with five minutes remaining, following up after Long saved Henry’s drive.Cody McDonald saw his header tipped over the bar by Simon Eastwood but Dons ended well beaten and have now gone four league games without a win on the bounce.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsOxford Utd1Eastwood2Ribeiro5Nelson30Mousinho21Ferreira da Silva17Henry14Ruffels8Ledson18Rothwell10PayneSubstituted forMowattat 71’minutes9ThomasSubstituted forvan Kesselat 67’minutesSubstituted forFernández Codinaat 80’minutesSubstitutes4Williamson6Martin13Shearer19Fernández Codina27Mowatt31Roberts39van KesselWimbledon1Long2Fuller5Nightingale4Oshilaja7Francomb18ParrettSubstituted forForresterat 45+2’minutes14Trotter17Barcham19SoaresSubstituted forKajaat 78’minutes10McDonaldSubstituted forCharlesat 61’minutes33TaylorSubstitutes6Robinson11Forrester21Kaja23Kennedy24McDonnell26Hartigan32CharlesReferee:Darren DrysdaleAttendance:7,241Match StatsHome TeamOxford UtdAway TeamWimbledonPossessionHome51%Away49%ShotsHome12Away8Shots on TargetHome5Away1CornersHome1Away5FoulsHome10Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, Oxford United 3, AFC Wimbledon 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Oxford United 3, AFC Wimbledon 0.Posted at 90’+4′ Attempt missed.
