Pittman cam into the starting XI in place of cup-tied Pell, and Parslow replaced the injured Magnay.
John-Lewis had an early chance which hit the post then McKeown made a good save at the feet of Potter.
Roberts gave Oxford the lead after 35 minutes, with an individual goal which he curved past McKeown. Moments later Disley cleared a shot off the line.
Roberts scored a second when Oxford broke and the Town defence went missing.
Rose put the game out of reach early in the second half when the Town defence stood statuesque in the box.
With the game drifting into the night Pearson pulled a goal back with 10 minutes to go. Could there be a shock turnaround? Pittman should have done better almost straight away but didn't make the most of a good chance to get a cross in.
In the end there were no further goals and Oxford won easily.
