The Oaks continued to dominate and create opportunities and when Cawte was taken down in the penalty area they had the chance to widen the gap.

Lovegrove stepped up to notch one more to his tally, but somehow the finish was more of a pass than a shot and the keeper dropped to his side and picked up.
