Erhun Oztumer inspires Walsall to victory against Oxford

Walsall sharpshooter Erhun Oztumer helped inspire the Saddlers to their first away win in the league since Boxing Day as they beat Oxford United 2-1 at the Kassam Stadium.
Oztumer put the Saddlers ahead in the 32nd minute when he turned in Joe Edwards' left-wing cross from barely three yards out at the far post, for his fifth goal of the season.
Oztumer should have had a second nine minutes later when he was through on goal, only for Simon Eastwood to brilliantly deflect his shot for a corner.
The Saddlers dominated the first half, with Kieron Morris, Zeli Ismail and former U's forward Tyler Roberts all forcing Eastwood into saves.
Oztumer then provided the pass for Walsall to double their lead on 53 minutes as Tyler Roberts turned to shoot past Eastwood from 14 yards.
Oxford, who went close when Gino van Kessel stabbed a shot against the post, pulled one back in the 78th minute when Ryan Ledson converted from the penalty spot after Luke Leahy brought down Rob Hall, Ledson sending Mark Gillespie the wrong way.
