Oxford dumped by Cheltenham Town... again!
Cheltenham Town have made it through to the semi-finals of the LDV Vans Trophy with a 2-1 victory over Oxford United.
The win means that Cheltenham have now eliminated Oxford United from two cup competitions in eight days after last week's FA Cup win.
Cheltenham took the lead after less than two minutes when on-loan striker Steven Gillespie scored. Defender Shane Duff directed a looping header beyond Tardif from free-kick on the hour mark and put the game almost beyond reach.
A late goal from Lee Mansell gave Oxford hope but it was all in vain and Cheltenham held on to win the match.
