Football: JAMIE SHINES ON HIS DEBUT; OXFORD 3 SWANSEA 1.

TWO goals in three minutes sent Swansea crashing to their second defeat of the season to basement boys Oxford.

With both sides already relegated, there was nothing but pride to play for and it was the home side which showed the most hunger.

They went ahead in the tenth minute when 17-year-old debut boy, Jamie Brooks, beat four Swansea defenders.

Brooks beat Swansea keeper Roger Freestone as well, but saw his left-foot shot come back off the post and Manny Omoyinmi tapped in the rebound.

The visitors rallied and they drew level 15 minutes later when transfer-listed Jason Price volleyed home from Matthew Bound's cross.

But a mad three-minute period cost the visitors dear.

Oxford striker Andy Scott appeared to be fouled in the box but as the whole of the Swansea defence stopped to look at referee Paul Robinson and Brooks nipped in to score Oxford's second.

Then when the visitors conceded a needless corner three minutes later, Matt Murphy headed home Joey Beauchamp's left-wing cross past a helpless Freestone.
