City beaten by Oxford

Chelmsford City were beaten 2-1 at home to Oxford City this afternoon, making it 3 defeats from their last 4 games for the Clarets.

Oxford, who until recently occupied a relegation spot, took the lead on 13 minutes through Pearce, before doubling their lead on 54 minutes when Poku fired home to make it 2-0.

Max Porter, returning from a long spell on the sidelines through injury, brought the home side back into the game shortly after the hour mark, but Rod Stringer’s men were unable to find an equaliser and it finished 2-1 to the visitors.

City have now conceded at least two goals per games from their last 4 matches and will be looking to restore normality at the back, where they have previously been so strong this season.

With so many strikers on the books too, the lack of goals is also a concern in recent weeks and much improvement is needed if Chelmsford are to chase down the leading pack.

Next up for City is a trip to the south coast to take on Whitehawk next Saturday. Like Oxford, the Hawks have struggled this term and sit rock bottom of the league with just 4 draws and 0 wins to their name this campaign. A win in Brighton really is a must.
