FORMER Nostell MW striker Oli Johnson maintained his impressive goal-scoring form for npower League Two promotion hopefuls Oxford United with another crucial goal at the weekend.

Despite losing striker James Constable to a red card after only 10 minutes, United saw-off league leaders Swindon Town 2-0, with Wakefield man Johnson tapping-in the second to help consign Town to their first league defeat of 2012.

Asa Hall fired home the opening goal on the quarter-hour in front of a sell-out crowd at the Kassam Stadium as Oxford consolidated sixth spot in the division.

Johnson, 24, left Norwich City at the start of the year and has scored three goals since his move to Oxford in January.
