Oxford United’s veteran centre-back Michael Duberry was in rare old form against Hereford yesterday afternoon, scoring the perfect hat-trick (one left, one right, one head) in his side’s 2-2 draw at the Kassam.
You may have noticed that the maths doesn’t quite add up there – and with good reason. Duberry opened his account with an own-goal, squeezing Joe Colbeck’s cross past his own ‘keeper with his dangling left foot, before leaping to head home yet another own-goal in the 89th minute to put Oxford 2-1 down with less than a minute to play.
Not finished, Duberry then grabbed a last-ditch equaliser at the right end with his right foot to draw the U’s level in stoppage time and complete his ‘perfect’ afternoon’s work…
Who knows, maybe The Force™ was with him?
