The start of the second period saw a change made to the Harriers line-up with the, presumably, injured Adie Smith making way for Lee Ayres.
Right from the re-start we got our act together and the passion and passing ability that was missing in the first half had come back in abundance. Oxford hadn't expected it and spent the next twenty minutes trying to cope with the Harriers resurgence.
The first chance of the half fell to Henriksen but again he missed from only a few yards out when it would have been easier to score.
Sam Shilton, who had been under used in the first half, now started to impose himself on the game and most of the good stuff from the Harriers was coming from him. His accurate crosses to Bo and Bish were becoming a problem for United and it wasn't long before our goal came.
Andy Bishop collected a long cross from Shilts and after jigging his way past the defence laid the ball into the path of Sean Parrish
who then grabbed his second goal in two games with a shot that went under the advancing keeper.
We continued to pressure Oxford after that but you had this sneaking feeling that all Oxford need do was step up a gear and the game would be all over. The first evidence of that came soon after.
A through ball from midfield went between Hinton and Coleman to two offside Oxford strikers, the referee and his assistant hadn't seen it, and Oxford's Andy Scott was free to force Brock into tipping the shot over for a corner.
A minute later and it was all over and again it was down to a defensive mix up.
The ball was played into the penalty area between Stuart Brock and Kenny Coleman. Instead of leaving the ball for the on loan Wolves player, Brock inexplicably came out for it and mis-hit it to the waiting Andy Scott who scored superbly with a shot that went in from the narrowest of angles.
In an effort to rescue the game Britton sent on Broughton and Foster in place of Henriksen and Bennett. Deano sat on the bench and Bo stormed off down the tunnel looking a bit upset.
The substitution didn't work, we had lost all our rhythm and it was back to the first half lethargy.
Again, as at Wrexham, Drewe didn't seem up for it and Foster was never in it. Sorry Ian, I know you've been a good servant to the Harriers in the past, but the doors just down there to your left.
The crowd sensed that it was all over too and the majority had left by the time the Oxford fans had finished singing 'We can see you sneaking out'.
This was a game that we thought we should have done well in, but be to be honest we were never really in it.
Oxford never did get out of second gear.
