Northampton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes that the U's are a very dangerous side as they prepare to take on his Cobblers side at Sixfields on Saturday.
“Oxford are a very technical side that is very good going forward, and they have a little bit more pace now up front,” he told the Northampton Chronicle.
“They are now a little bit more direct, and that makes them a dangerous side. The players they have were the ones there earlier in the season, and it is not a team to muck about with.
“So, you have to strip it down and look at them, look at what their strengths are and really make sure we know about that and we cope with those strengths.”
