REACTION Derek Fazackerley on Wimbledon

U's look for positive reacton this Saturday

12 March 2018

Oxford United will look for a positive reaction when they face Peterborough United at home this Saturday.

Two set plays proved decisive at Wimbledon on Saturday, although Caretaker Manager Derek Fazackerley felt that his team were a little hard done by.

“I thought we were excellent in the first half and by far the better team” he told iFollow “but we had to come back from a goal behind, which was the least we deserved. They changed the system in the second half and pushed up against our two full backs so we found the game a little bit more difficult, but to come away from the game with nothing was disappointing

“The game was decided on two set plays, one of which we could do something about and one we couldn’t, but we hadn’t capitalised on the chances we had before their second goal which might have given us a bit more of a comfort blanket. Away from home against a direct Wimbledon side we withstood the challenge very well and I don’t think Easty had too many shots to save but unfortunately we haven’t quite done enough in the final third of the field, especially in the second half

“Now we have to dust ourselves down , pick ourselves up and prepare for our next game against Peterborough on Saturday. We have fixtures coming up against teams in and around us in the league and everyone at the club knows we need to get a result, the sooner the better. We have to concentrate on ourselves, not teams around us, and get a win next Saturday to start climbing the league a little bit.”
