Elliott Moore scored a late goal for Oxford United to set up a dramatic Ligue 1 match against Wigan Athletic, which was delayed by almost an hour due to a disruption to the semi-final match caused by floodlights at the Kassam Stadium.

The game was stopped when the field had to be cleared while firefighters were on site due to a fire in one of the searchlights.

Three goals fell after play resumed at 17:45 GMT.

Callum Lang put Wigan in the lead before Sam Winnall and Moore turned the tables.

We went into the second half and you could smell the fire smell through the air ducts. We have been ordered to evacuate the building quickly, said U leader Carl Robinson.

There is a leak in one of the rooms which is contributing to the ignition of the headlights from which the fire started.

Oxford United vs Wigan Athletic was scoreless prior to the delay due to a fire in one of the floodlights at the Kassam Stadium.

The match had already been postponed for 24 hours due to freezing weather and was then rescheduled for 16:00 GMT to give the pitch more time to thaw and have a better chance of being played.

After a short delay, the players and staff were allowed to enter the stadium, which is also a local vaccination center for Covid 19.

It’s another one of those bizarre scenarios we’ve been presented with, Robinson said. The most important thing is that the inoculation continues, because football is a side issue at the moment.

After the game, Robinson’s men had done enough to move up three spots in the draw, extending their recent run to a 16-game losing streak.

Long has the Latics in the lead in the 57th. They took the lead in the 42nd minute thanks to a clever counter-attack after a pass from George Johnston.

But Winnall equalized in the 72nd minute with a header at the far post off a precise cross from Brandon Barker.

Central defender Moore scored the winning goal on seven minutes when he headed in Mark Sykes’ cross from four yards out.
