Brentford 0-4 Oxford Utd- Match Report

Last updated : 11 August 2015
Four-star Oxford stun BrentfordKemar Roofe's exceptional long-range strike helped Oxford shock Brentford in the Capital One Cup as Michael Appleton's men produced a performance the winning side of 1986 would have been proud of.This season marks the 30th anniversary of the Yellows' League Cup win at Wembley and they could not have asked for a better start to it, swatting aside a team that made last season's Championship play-offs.Brentford manager Marinus Dijkhuizen's decision to make 11 changes was ruthlessly exploited by fourth-tier United, with Liam Sercombe, Danny Hylton, Roofe and Jon Mullins securing a comprehensive 4-0 win.A manic opening 12 minutes settled this first-round clash, with Sercombe taking aim from the edge of the box and firing home a low, right-footed strike to start an embarrassing night for the Bees.That fifth-minute effort was followed by a comical second as Jack Bonham's clearance deflected in off Hylton, before Roofe sent the 903 visiting fans into raptures - taking aim from 40 yards after the Bees back-up goalkeeper strayed off his line.Ryan Taylor had chances to make it worse in a one-sided first half - a pattern which continued after the break, when clever, unselfish team play allowed Mullins to convert and wrap up a great United win
