We’re poor because our game plan has been sussed and trans are pressing us all over the pitch but high up the park and we are forced almost into our own box. Hence Hirst is isolated.

Be lucky if this match finishes the way the fog is coming in. Harness missed a great chance.

If as you say we are sussed out then it is up to the Manager to change it, its the sign of an idiot to keep doing the same thing.

Burns hit the bar from point blank range

How the f*ck can Burns miss the target from 6 yards, that’s two we should be ahead.

Our conversion rate of clear chances is pretty shocking these days.

The chance Oxford just put away was a mirror image of chances both Harness and Burns have already had. The difference is their guy chose his spot and hit the target whilst our chumps blasted the ball over the target from 6 yards.

We need to get Harness and Hirst off for Broadhead and Ladapo. Not impressed with Hirst at all.

Seems it’s “ ok” for oxford to plough through our players ( very physical from them yet again) and nothing gets called. Yet as soon as we challenge it’s a foul!

If that is happening, that is strange. Usually a decent ref

Quite a result to go in level as we've been poor although the last 15 minutes saw improvement, we have created couple of chances, as usual the defence wilts when someone runs at them. Triple change for me, Broadhead, Ladapo and Clarke on for Hirst, Harness and take your pick of the CB's
