Second-year scholar Smith, who has been on the first-team bench on numerous occasions this season, also scored for a second successive game.

The U’s grabbed one back in the second half but any chance of a comeback was hindered when they had a man sent off.

The Blues returned to the south coast with all three points and next travel to Swindon Town on Saturday.
