AFC Wimbledon will spend new year in the League Two relegation zone after going down 3-0 to 10-man Oxford.
Goals from Sean Rigg, Alfie Potter and Tom Craddock extended United's unbeaten run to nine games in all competitions.
Following a spell of little action, the visitors took the lead just after the half hour, a lovely defence splitting pass from Potter found Rigg who slammed his shot into the top corner.
Soon afterwards the away side doubled their lead, Rigg turned provider this time as his cross found Potter who nodded the ball over the line.
Wimbledon had a good spell early in the second half but failed to convert their chances and United killed the game just after the hour.
AFC's Will Antwi attempted to head back towards his goalkeeper Neil Sullivan but Craddock was there to pounce and coolly slot home for his 11th of the season.
United's afternoon was soured though as James Constable was sent off for an apparent elbow on Antwi.
