The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Oxford United for their 6 – 0 victory against Lincoln City last Saturday.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,500 competitive matches in professional football.
This morning Manager Karl Robinson received a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.
He told us:
"It is nice for the team to receieve this recognition and our thanks to LG and the LMA. It was a fantastic performance and we have had a good week. Now we want to cap it off with another important win against Gillingham on Saturday."
It has been a good week for the U's with Tariqe Fosu winning a place in the FIFA Ultimate Team of the Week and Shandon Baptiste's goal against West Ham being nominated for goal of the round on Wednesday.
