DESPITE taking the lead late on, Brackley Town slipped to a 2-1 defeat in the New Year’s Day derby at Oxford City. where their winless run continued.
Tom Winters gave Jon Brady’s side a 73rd minute lead but Felipe Barcelos equalised six minutes later and Andy Ballard hit what proved to be the winner in the 81st minute as City completely turned the game around.
There was still time for Steve Diggin to miss a late penalty and the opportunity to earn Saints a point.
