Oxford came from behind to beat Wigan 4-2 in a thriller and record their first win in six matches.

Jordan Jones fired the Latics in front in the 41st minute, sprinting past Sam Long before sending a low angled shot into the far corner.

Josh Murphy drilled a shot past keeper Sam Tickle in first-half stoppage time to equalise for the U’s.

Cameron Brannagan put the home side ahead 10 minutes after the restart with a long shot that took a big deflection off Wigan captain Charlie Hughes to leave Tickle wrong-footed.

Sub Ruben Rodrigues added a third in the 76th minute, following up after Tyler Goodrham’s shot came back off the post.

Wigan pulled a second goal back four minutes later when Thelo Aasgaard powered home a header from Jonny Smith’s cross.

But Goodrham ended any last hope by lashing in a fourth in stoppage time.

Earlier, Brannagan struck a ferocious shot from outside the box that smashed against the bar.

Latics’ Josh Magennis was also thwarted by the woodwork, seeing his header pushed against the post by the Oxford keeper.
