Oxford City concede twice in a minute as Hoops beaten on TNT Sports

Robert Harker capitalised on confusion between Marcin Brzozowski and Tafari Moore, to give visiting side FC Halifax Town the lead after 22 minutes.

The Hoops barely had time to process going behind, when Andrew Oluwabori found the bottom corner from the edge of the penalty box.

Brzozowski made a save to deny Florent Hoti, while Josh Ashby and Harvey Greenslade tested Sam Johnson at the other end.

The second half saw Brzozowski deny Harker twice, before splendid stops from Tylor Golden and Kane Thompson-Sommers.

The Hoops are now 15 points adrift of safety in the Vanarama National League.
