Burnett Pleased With Oxford Attack

Manager Wayne Burnett has said he was delighted with our offensive play in the three all draw against Oxford United last weekend.

In some ways the less said about the defending again the better, but the gaffer reached full time with a smile on his face owing to goals from Hemmings, Cureton and Ogogo and by rights he knows that at two one to the good, we really should've held out but having then gone three two behind, he was pleased with the endeavour to get back on level terms.

Speaking to the Official Site he said that overall, given the test he expected from a 'false positioned' Oxford, he had to be pleased to come away from the game with a point and something to show for it.

'I thought we played some good stuff at times and I'm pleased with a point. We've got players in the team who can score goals and we've shown that. Scoring three you expect to win but we didn't. When you play expansive like we do, you're sometimes going to concede. It's disappointing that we were in the winning position and we didn't maintain that, but to come back the way we did was pleasing.'

Burnett went on to confirm that in his eyes the game was exactly how he expected it to be as he thought ahead of the encounter that Oxford would prove to be the stiffest and toughest opposition that we had faced so far, and they certainly didn't let us down.

So for him to get ahead, and show the character we did, playing some of the football we did, does leave him with plenty of positives to take from the game, but obviously also a clear indication of what and where we need to improve on.

In further good news for the gaffer as well he said he was able to welcome back striker Rhys Murphy to training today following his injury, but he is going to be gently eased back into things and not rushed because fitness wise he's a way off the pace at the moment, but the fact he's back is a positive in itself.

Christian Doidge is also on the road to recovery, so when them two are back we really will have some good competition up front for places - not that they seem to need much competition to find the net in recent games.
