Oxford City were on the wrong end of a rather harsh 4-1 scoreline at East Thurrock United in the Vanarama National League South.
A quickfire first half double from Calvin Ekpiteta saw the hosts race into a 2-0 half time lead, City would battle back in the second half and 25 minutes left Matt Paterson reduced arrears and with the Hoops pushing forward for an equaliser they were caught by a further two goals in the final 4 minutes from Sam Higgins and Montel Agyemang to leave Rookery Hill pointless.
