Smith nets in cup tie
Jonté Smith was on target in Oxford United’s 3-1 defeat against Oxford City in the Oxfordshire Senior Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night.
The Bermuda striker gave the visiting side the lead when he tapped in a cross from Owen James. However, the home side were back on level terms after Craig Fasanmade capitalised on some poor defending.
City then took the lead through Kyran Wiltshire’s goal at the end of the first half. United threw numbers forward in search of an equaliser and paid the price as Brandon Thomas-Asante added his name to the scoresheet to put the match beyond reach.
Smith completed a January transfer deadline day move to Sky Bet League One side Oxford from non-League outfit Lewes.
Smith has been named in Oxford’s first team squad twice this season.
