OXFORD 1-2 COVENTRY
It's all over and Coventry earn their second victory of the season in League One. Oxford pushed hard at the end but couldn't snatch an equaliser.
Stay tuned for highlights.
90+3: Oxford win a corner. It's curled in deep and Coventry manage to get it away.
WATCH: OBIKA HEADS HOME
Will this just be a consolation goal for Oxford?
90+2: Holmes curls in a cross from the left that Burge does well to come and claim under pressure.
90: Good delivery from the free-kick by Garbutt but Coventry manage to clear.
90: Four minutes to be added on. Oxford with a free-kick on the right side...
WATCH: COV'S PENALTY
Here's how the visitors scored their second goal...
87: Clarke-Harris is booked for knocking the ball away as Oxford tried to take a throw.
GOAL! OXFORD 1-2 COVENTRY (Obika 86)
A lifeline for Oxford as a corner is curled in from the right and Obika powers in a header from six yards out.
First goal in 26 games for Obika.
OXFORD 0-2 COVENTRY
85: Shipley was lying on the ground as Chaplin took the penalty, but he is now being helped off.
OXFORD 0-2 COVENTRY
83: Double change for Oxford as Smith and Garbutt replace Mackie and Baptiste.
Coventry also make two switches as Shipley, who appeared to injure himself in winning the penalty, is replaced by Andreu and Ogogo comes on for Chaplin.
GOAL! OXFORD 0-2 COVENTRY (Chaplin 82)
Chaplin goes down the middle, Mitchell dives to his right, and it's 2-0 to Coventry.
OXFORD 0-1 COVENTRY
PENALTY TO COVENTRY! Bayliss chips over the top for Shipley, who gets to the ball ahead of Mitchell and is taken out by the goalkeeper. Bad decision by Mitchell and a chance for Coventry to score a second...
WATCH: COVENTRY TAKE THE LEAD
More than a touch of fortune about the opening goal...
OXFORD 0-1 COVENTRY
79: Coventry are enjoying a decent spell of possession, keeping the home side pinned back inside their own half. Just what Mark Robins would have wanted from his side.
76: Oxford are starting to go a bit more direct and get the ball into the box quicker.
74: Another poor delivery from an Oxford set-piece. This time it's Brannagan overhitting a free-kick and curling it behind for a goal-kick.
71: Change for Oxford as Obika comes on for Browne.
69: SAVE! A mix-up in the Coventry defence gives Henry a sight of goal. He fires a low shot across the goal but Burge gets down well to save.
69: Just seeing the Coventry goal again and it will go down as an own goal as Shipley's shot was heading wide before it hit Mousinho.
67: Frustration for Browne as he breaks through midfield and then knocks the ball ahead of the last man, but Coventry goalkeeper Burge is out quickly and beats him to it.
GOAL! OXFORD 0-1 COVENTRY (Mousinho OG 64)
The deadlock is broken, and it's in fortuitous style.
Shipley has a shot from inside the box which deflects off Mousinho and spins into the back of the net, with Oxford goalkeeper Mitchell unable to get back across after stepping the other way.
OXFORD 0-0 COVENTRY
64: Baptiste is having a good game but he loses out in the box as he cuts across and then brings down Thomas.
WATCH: MOUSINHO GOES CLOSE
This was so nearly the opening goal...
60: CLOSE! A quick free-kick from Doyle catches Oxford out and Chaplin brings it down brilliantly with his first touch. Can he finish? No he can't as he shoots at Mitchell.
58: Holmes bends in a deep cross which Henry heads back into the middle. It looks like it might be a chance but the header from Henry doesn't pick out a team-mate.
57: Chaplin hits a low shot from outside the box but doesn't catch it cleanly and it's easy for Mitchell to save.
55: CLOSE! What a chance for Oxford.
Browne curls in a good corner which flies past Nelson, who can't make contact with the header, and it lands at the feet of Mousinho. The goal is empty but he knocks it just wide of the post.
52: Brannagan fortunate to escape without a booking as he takes out Bayliss. Players were booked for similar in the first half.
50: CLOSE! Doyle curls in a free-kick from the left which Willis rises to meet, but he can't keep his header down.
Better delivery from a free-kick than we saw in the first half.
48: Karl Robinson is still watching on from up high. He's not in the dugout as he has a touchline ban.
46: Just hearing that Grimmer has gone off at half-time due to a knee problem.
And we are back underway...
Half-time change for Coventry as Sterling comes on for Grimmer at right-back.
WATCH: THOMAS DENIED
This was the best chance of the first half. Should Thomas have passed?
That is half-time. Chances few and far between in a tightly-contested opening 45 minutes.
45+2: Holmes is booked as he stops a Coventry counter-attack by sliding in on Thomas.
45: Two minutes to be added on.
44: Mackie latches onto a long pass and knocks it into the box and past Willis. Both players tussle for the ball and go to ground, which leaves Coventry goalkeeper Burge with a simple task to come out and claim.
42: Shipley clips a ball over the top but it's overhit and Mitchell comes out to gather.
WATCH: HENRY GOES CLOSE
This was the opportunity for Oxford a few minutes ago...
39: Another disappointing delivery from Brown as he overhits the free-kick and sends it flying behind for a goal-kick.
38: Browne curls a free-kick from deep towards the box but doesn't beat the first man. Oxford will have another chance though as Baptiste wins a free-kick in a similar position...
35: SAVE! Great chance for Coventry.
Grimmer plays a ball over the top for Thomas, who checks and then goes past Mousinho. Thomas could pass into the middle where Clarke-Harris is wide open but he opts to go alone and is denied at close range by Mitchell.
33: This has developed into a physical contest with neither side giving an inch. Plenty of tussles all over the pitch but not many clear sights of goal.
30: CLOSE! Excellent cross from Holmes on the left, curled into the perfect spot on the edge of the six-yard box. Henry comes sliding in to meet it but can't quite get there on the stretch.
28: Coventry are getting into the game a bit more. They are working it around better and finding some spaces.
26: Clarke-Harris and Nelson tussle under a bouncing ball and it's the Oxford defender who comes out on top.
24: Grimmer gets forward down the right side and chips into the box towards Chaplin, but Nelson wins the header.
