Ironside holds nerve.

Cambridge 1 Oxford 1

MARK BONNER saw Cambridge's draw as a great experience.

Joe Ironside slotted home an equalising penalty after Steve Seddon's firsthalf opener for Oxford.

U's boss Bonner said: "It was a good game, it ebbed and flowed between both teams at either end. It's a brilliant learning game for us. I think that's what we're going to find in the first four or six weeks when we get used to things and find out how we can improve and where we can do better.

"There's lots to take from that but there's also lots of confidence, to get something from the game, to come from behind. That resilience that we had last year - we're going to need this year."

Oxford boss Karl Robinson spoke highly of his side's performance, adding: "I've just said to the players, you can put the whole game in context. They celebrated that game like it was a final.

"It's great to see the fans back, sorry we couldn't give them three points."


SPOT ON Joe Ironside earned the U's a point
