It just wasn’t in the cards for Oxford United on Saturday.
The League Two side are in the hunt for a promotion playoff spot, along with their weekend opponent Dagenham & Redbridge. With only six weeks left in the season, every point is crucial. After making it almost the full 90 minutes without conceding, this happened:
Ouch. Not only is that one of the more unfortunate own goals we’ve ever seen, it was the game-winner — and put Oxford’s playoff spot in jeopardy.
Daggers boss Wayne Burnett joked after the match, “It was a brilliant goal, we’ve been working on that all week,” he said.
We doubt the U’s and their fans were laughing.
