Both teams had defeated some excellent sides to get this far in the cup competition.
Paulton Rovers welcomed Oxford City to Somervale for this clash on the 3G.
Within the opening minutes it was clear that Oxford were a well drilled, strong and very capable side. They were far the best Paulton had seen all season.
Rovers were clearly sitting back and admiring the talent however, they were keeping City away from the danger zones quite well.
Lucas Purnell was without doubt, the only reason City hadn't scored early. Pulling off save after save from a Oxford City strike force that was lining up constantly.
City took the lead with a strike from Carrick Dunbar beating the Rovers back line and cooling finishing.
Rovers then decided to wake up and started to play some good football.
The City defence thwarted any attack that Rovers had to offer.
The second half saw Rovers step up a gear, they had spells where they give the visitors a game, but their attack was broken down and City could counter quite easily.
3 goals in the second period from City seen them cruise to a well deserved victory.
Paulton Rovers wish the players, coaches and supporters of Oxford City FC the very best of luck for the remainder of the competition and the season.
