Chris Wilder and everyone connected to the club can breath a sigh of relief after getting three points on board.

Scorers:Harrison 20′ Fenlon 36′Some fans wanted 442 and tonight they got it. I think this was more down to the players available though as Oxford has been hit by more injuries this season than quite a few teams added together.

It wasn’t a pretty performance but in spells both teams put together good moves to create openings for themselves. It’s 3 pts to the yellows but fans will go away still concerned as the next team up at the Kassam will pose a real test. 3 more injuries from this match as Wayne Brown, Michael Raynes and Lee Cox had to depart so the win came at a high cost.

May be I will get a call up Saturday!!
