‘Utter shambles’ – Fans react as Oxford beat woeful Bradford in bizarre circumstances

 Oxford United’s relegation clash with Bradford City ended in the most dramatic of circumstances, with their winning goal at first being ruled out.

Not only that, but a penalty was awarded to visitors Bradford City. That decision was overturned and a goal kick then awarded, before finally the Jamie Mackie striker was allowed.

The win saw Oxford climb out of the bottom four, moving a point clear of Walsall in 21st. Bradford meanwhile sink to the bottom of the table after Wimbledon won to keep their hopes of survival alive.

Just three points separate Walsall in the final relegation spot and Plymouth who are 12th in the table. In League Two, the gap between 12th and 21st is 11 points.

It’s the closest relegation battle for years with half of the division still in dire need of victories. If the proximity wasn’t enough, the frankly ridiculous scenes at the Kassam simply added to the drama.

Fans from both sides were quick to criticise, although Oxford fans seem to be angrier at the referee, whilst Bantams are fuming with their own players.

He’s a cross section of the responses doing the rounds this morning.
