REACTION: Robinson On Wycombe

U's boss left frustrated by 0-0 draw at Wycombe

17 September 2018

Oxford United Manager Karl Robinson was left frustrated despite picking up a point on the road as his side drew 0-0 at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

A fantastic away backing saw the U’s play well without getting their due reward and Karl told iFollow that he believes the whole club, not just the team, is moving in the right direction

“We didn’t take our chances but the back four and goalkeeper were excellent today and I thought Curtis Nelson was outstanding” he said after the game at Adams Park. “It’s hard to pick a best player today because they were all excellent

“I thought there were a lot of positives but I was also thinking ’just don’t throw this away. The fans could see our desire again today and they can see we aren’t far away from being a good team. We just have to learn to take our chances. You’d back Gavin Whyte and Ricky Homes to take the chances they had but they didn’t today, unfortunately and that’s a difficult thing to take

“But we haven’t lost and I think that’s one defeat in six games now, and in the league we’ve won one, drawn two and lost one of the last four, but our points tally should be a lot more because our talent and our work ethic certainly deserve that.

“It’s hard to take because we all work so hard- the staff, support staff, everyone; the dedication that they show is massive. This club has evolved and we are a different club off the pitch now, but the results have to be better as well and we all understand that. We won’t feel sorry for ourselves, we will just have a bigger belief and desire to be successful and if you do that then it will come true.”
