Swindon Town Oxford United
K.Horlock (50')
HT: 0-0
Attendance:  10,811   Referee:  G. Singh



 
On his return to the County Ground after his move back to Oxford, Joey Beauchamp receives some fearful stick from the Swindon crowd, not to mention a few bumps and bruises from his ex-team-mates. Despite a second half onslaught by the away side, a Kevin Horlock header is enough to give the Town a derby victory.
