The 28-year-old's dipping 20-yard volley doubled his side's lead at Plainmoor on Saturday as they ran out 3-1 winners over Torquay to remain at the top of the table.

And Constable, who is now just 12 short of the club's all time goalscoring record, says he has not scored a better goal for the club.

"I can't remember a cleaner strike than that," he told the Oxford Mail.

"There are a lot of times when the ball sits up like that and you think 'should I have a shot or not?', but I don't think I've hit a better one than that.

"I just needed to make sure I got the cleanest connection I could. I didn't want to see it go out for a throw."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
