Lee Brown's penalty 10 minutes into the second half, and a second goal deep into stoppage time by substitute Eliot Richards did the trick for the visitors.

Oxford have taken one point from four games over the past fortnight, dealing a severe blow to their play-off aspirations.

"We had the best chances of the game but haven't taken them," Wilder said. "It's just as disappointing as last week when we lost at Southend.

"In a tight first half we had the best chances, and I thought we started the second half really well.

"It's just a bit of quality in and around the final third that is the difference.

"And that's the difference between players staying here and players moving on.

"We dominated that game but I can't keep saying that. It's the big moments we're not getting right."

"My skipper (Jake Wright) has held his hand up for the penalty. He's made a bad decision.

"The second goal at the end was because we had six up front and were trying to get an equaliser."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
