Bassett blues.

Oxford were left cursing referee Eddie Lomas last night - for being too good!

The Salford referee allowed Oxford the advantage when Martin Aldridge was brought down in the box in the dying minutes because team-mate Martin Gray was in a great position to score.

But midfielder Gray fluffed his shot and Wolves escaped.

"The ref did the right thing, but it was very disappointing because he told us afterwards he would have given a penalty had Gray not been there," said Oxford boss Denis Smith.

Skipper Mike Ford had fired Oxford ahead, but Wolves came storming back after the break to equalise through Iwan Roberts.
