Bottom side Oxford City blew the lead to go down 2-1 to AFC Fylde in the National League, confirming their relegation back to the sixth tier in the process.

Josh Parker fired the visitors into the lead with a composed finish after 15 minutes.

But Joe Westley got in behind the Oxford back line on the hour and expertly bent the ball into the net to draw the hosts level.

The result leaves Oxford 16 points from safety with only five games remaining.
