Star Player

Michael Collins didn't put a foot wrong in the centre of the park.

Oxford managed 5 shots to Burtion's 2 but its the one that go in that count.

On reflection the balance of play was quiet even against the team that lost at wembley in last season's divison playoffs.

We just need to be a little more clever at times at both ends of the pitch. In general the match was ok. But its a point lost rather than 3 missed.
