FORMER Nostell MW striker Oli Johnson bagged a goal and an assist to steer npower League Two promotion hopefuls Oxford United to a 2-1 home win over Dagenham and Redbridge last night, Tuesday.

The Wakefield marksman, who was released by Norwich City at the start of the year, celebrated his first goal for United since joining the club in January when he headed home from Liam Davis’s cross on 52 minutes.

Johnson was the hero at the other end of the pitch when he cleared off the line from a rare attack from the visitors but the Daggers eventually found a way through and Mark Arber headed in an equaliser with 18 minutes remaining.

However, Johnson capped a superb display when he put James Constable through for the winner on 80 minutes.
