The second half got underway with Danny Greenwood picking out Oakley with a superb pass; going round the goalie the United forward hit the outside of the post from a tight angle.
Woodley pressed on, a nice move started after a neat turn by Callum Samuel-Harmen ended with the home keeper once again thwarting United.
The scores were level with thirteen minutes left when Oakley turned home from close range after Michael Porter headed a right wing corner goalwards.
With the game in its final ten minutes, United hit the outside of the post for a second time. Good link up play between Marvin Hinds and Beckett ended with the former having his shot deflect off a Fleet defender and clip the woodwork.
Woodley had a real let off with two minutes left when the hosts should have nicked a winner. A low cross from the right found a Fleet forward unmarked six yards out; mis-controlling the ball, it allowed Alex Reed time to close the angle and save before the ball was cleared.
The miss was to prove costly as United won it at the death when Oakley headed in a Nat Robinson corner.
