Hampton Humbled at Home by Oxford City

By

Hampton go into the FA Cup tie vs Oldham without a win in their last five league games after they were comfortably beaten at home by Oxford City.

HRBFC 2 VS Oxford City 4

Attendance 471

Hampton and Richmond FC fell were well beaten at home by Oxford City after a nightmare first half which saw them go three nil down.
the goals were scored by Zach McEachran, Kabongo Tshminga, Joe Oastler and Kyren Wiltshire. Hampton's goals were scored by Jack Connors including an absolute thunderbolt from 25 yards out. Unfortunately however, this was not enough for Hampton to gain any points and they head into the massive FA Cup tie in poor form.

First Half

The Beavers’ got off to the worst possible start as within three minutes they found themselves a goal down for the second consecutive game.

The goal was scored by Zach McEarchran as he cut in from the right-hand side and strode unopposed into the box and from a tight angle beat Lovelock at his near post.

Tyler Miller-Rodney was on the floor injured at the time, but the ref was happy to allow play to continue.

Oxford nearly extended their lead in the tenth minute when a long ball over the top freed Kabongo Tshiminga but Lovelock denied him with a good stop down to his right.

Two minutes later however, Hampton should have been level as a good team move involving Chris Dickson, Ricky Wellard and Daniel Uchechi ended with the latter firing wide from 10 yards out after he had been picked out brilliantly by Dickson.

The Oxford City dominance however, was turned into another goal on the half hour mark as McEarchan span Wellard too easily on the edge of the box and his low centre was turned in by Tshimanga from 10 yards out. Michael Corcoran was then subbed off with an injury replaced by Casey Maclaren.

It was three nil at half time as Joe Oastler rose unopposed from a corner and powered a header into the far corner. Leaving Hampton with a mountain to climb in the second half.

Second Half

Hampton made a double change as they attempted claw something back from the game Rhys Murrell-Williamson and Natahn Mavila were brought on in place of Wellard and Uchechi.

The changes seemed to spark Hampton into life.

Dickson nearly pulled one back for Hampton as he flicked a header just wide from a Jack Connors delivery.

A minute later Joseph worked some space in the box and rifled a shot towards goal, but it fizzed past the near post.

Hampton’s pressure however told in the 54th minute as Connor’s picked up a pass by Maclaren took a touch and drove a fantastic shot into the far corner from around 25 yards out.

A true rocket of a shot which swerved in the air and left Craig King with no chance.

A great chance for the second goal for Hampton arrived on the 66th minute as Craig Dundas caught a header but even though he had the power he could not redirect his header and it flew wide of the far post.

The game then fizzled out until in the 80th minute when Sam Nombe beat the offside trap and forced a fine save from Lovelock.

The resulting corner then saw Mavila clear an Oastler header off the line before Lovelock was again called into action denying McEachran a second.

Hampton then nearly got a goal of their own as Lovelock pumped a long free kick into the box which Yado Mambo got on the end of, but his header lacked power and was easy for the keeper to deal with.

Oxford then bagged a fourth in the 86th minute as Nombe got free down the left-hand side skipped past Rian Bray and delivered the ball on a plate for Kyren Wiltshire.

Hampton got themselves a consolation in the 90th minute through Connor’s second goal of the game as he applied a neat finish after a scramble in the Oxford box.

This was a match to forget for Hampton and improvement is needed in the league.

Reaction from Gary McCann

"First half from hell.

I am really disappointed with the result today.

There are clearly minds that are elsewhere as the level of performance in the last three games since the Eastleigh win have not been good enough.

There are no guaranteed places for that game now and that is very much down to performance and if they think they are guaranteed a place then they are kidding themselves, me and the club."
