HARVEY Bradbury was on target for the second Premier League Cup game running, but Oxford United’s under 23s were pegged back to draw 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The striker, who had netted at Hull City last month, notched from the penalty spot in the 77th minute at Thame United’s ASM Stadium.

A win would have taken Chris Allen’s side top of the group at the halfway stage, but Carlos Heredia quickly equalised for to keep Wolves at the summit.

United’s side included five players who have featured for the first team this season.

One of those, Cameron Norman, came closest to breaking the deadlock in a tight first half.

The right back fashioned the chance himself in the 40th minute, winning the ball in the Wolves half and letting fly from 20 yards with a fierce strike which Harry Burgoyne turned round the post.

Chances were also at a premium after the break, with an offside flag ruling out Benny Ashley-Seal’s close-range effort on 64 minutes.

The deadlock was finally broken 13 minutes from time, when United were awarded a penalty after Owen James was brought down.

Bradbury smashed in the spot kick, but the advantage lasted just two minutes, with Heredia converting a cross to equalise.

Substitute Tsun Dai’s free-kick came closest to grabbing a late winner, but his effort was well saved.

Oxford Utd: Stevens, Norman, Raglan, Long, Taylor, R James, Heap (Dai 75), McCreadie, O James, Hopkins (Lopes 90), Bradbury (Spasov 90).

Subs: Clayton, Berry-Hargreaves.
