OXFORD City recovered from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at home to Billericay Town on Saturday.

Mark Jones’s side trailed to Jake Robinson’s early double in their Vanarama National League South clash.

But Zac McEachran spectacularly reduced the deficit and Jack Self tapped home to earn a share of the spoils.

City handed a debut to new loan signing Reece Beckles-Richards.

But the striker had hardly been involved in the game when the visitors took the lead in the 11th minute.

A shot from range was deflected into the path of Robinson, who easily beat Harry Isted.

The lead was soon doubled when Robinson got to the ball before Isted, flicking it over the keeper and into the net to make it 2-0 with just 18 minutes on the clock.

However, City were back in the game two minutes later.

McEachran skilfully controlled the ball on the edge of the box before volleying a

superb strike into the top corner.

Jenson Wright went close to equalising, before on the stroke of half-time McEachran saw a free-kick acrobatically saved by Alan Julian.

City did get the equaliser early in the second half.

Beckles-Richards threaded a ball through to Craig Fasanmade, who rounded Julian before setting up Self to tap in.

Both sides then went for the winner as the half wore on.

Billericay saw a couple of long-range efforts miss the target before City substitute Stefan Brown went close.

The striker fired in a first-time shot from just outside the box which forced Julian into a great save.
