Oxford United head for Peterborough on Saturday looking to get back to winning ways after three defeats in a row.

Manager Pep Clotet knows his side face a difficult task at the Posh, but also knows there is still plenty of football to be played this season:

“Peterborough are a tough challenge” he told iFollow. “They can play a few ways and are very dangerous going forward so we cannot leave ourselves vulnerable by being very open. It’s about focussing on how we play.

“We have done a lot of good things this season. We have the same points that we had at this stage last season and I did a little bit of research after the lads told me that Millwall were in exactly this position last season, coming from three defeats in a row. They ended up winning promotion and it shows the nature of this league- anyone can beat anyone and I have plenty of trust in the quality of our players.

“For me it’s all about the reaction and to keep playing to our strengths. Despite the result on Tuesday there were a lot of positives from the game. Sometimes you only look at the result and do not think you have done something good but I thought we overcame a lot of the things that Walsall put to us and we fought to get a result at Bury the whole game. We look at this squad and see players who are together and want to get out of this blip by working hard together.

“The players know what they have to do. It’s a very good group with a really good spirit. Everyone made a huge effort to get the new players settled and they all believe in each other and want to work together.

“There are no cliques and I’m delighted because it gives is the best chance of putting the football we want to play out there on the pitch at Peterborough on Saturday.”
