'If It's Football, It's Vital'

We Were Well Beaten

Keith Hill has said that despite our improvements recently, too many players reverted to type in the game against Oxford, so he can't begrudge them the victory.

Speaking to the media following the 3-0 defeat, Hill said he had initially hoped at best to lose only four of the last 18 games, and the Oxford result means we have lost a fifth out of 17 and he's disappointed with that.

'We were a shadow of the way we have been, with and without the ball and especially without the ball. But I don't want to be too critical of the players because we've come a long way. One or two of them reverted to type.'

He adds that the team did let themselves and the supporters down, and they played like it was a game that didn't matter at the end of the season and that's something he won't tolerate in the future, although he does understand that players at this stage of the season when they are out of contract in the summer can sometimes lose their focus.

His bottom line is that he's seen enough improvement to be encouraged about going into next season.
