Swindon Town lost their fourth consecutive match against Oxford United in a rubbish 1-0 loss at the Kassam Stadium.
Town didn`t seem to get out of the blocks and were dragged down to Oxford`s style of hoofball football which totally caught Town off guard.
As promised Paolo Di Canio changed his team and had loanee Darren Ward start at centre back and re-called Wes Foderingham to the team after they settled their differences earlier in the week.
Although Town had most of the possession in the first half they failed miserably to convert any chances and both teams went into half time at 0-0.
Shortly after half time, Di Canio would attempt to mix things up by replacing Simon Ferry with Tommy Miller. Adam Rooney who was making his Town debut looked a bit greedy at times and fluffed a couple of shots towards goal.
The talking point of the second half however was Darren Ward. Ward constantly got caught out and hoofed the ball forward hoping to find Andy Williams to no avail.
John Bostock who came on for Paul Benson came close to scoring a couple of times before Town enjoyed a lengthy spell of possession.
The game inevitably looked set to go to penalties, and whilst Town didn`t appear to have our scoring boots on, Foderingham is a good shot stopper so we should be ok.
On 88 minutes, Aden Flint and Darren Ward would tumble over each other leaving Alfie Potter one on one with Wes Foderingham who coolly slammed home the ball giving Oxford a 1-0 lead heading into extra time.
Town fans were distraught, whilst once again it was the yellow end of the A420 celebrating as they left the Kassam Stadium with the bragging rights. Town have now visited the Kassam Stadium three times and lost three times. Town have also failed to score a single goal at Oxford since they left the manor.
