U’S: WE’VE FLOPPED

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

OX­FORD UNITED as­sis­tant man­ager Mickey Lewis ad­mits af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing sea­son, the club have fallen well short of the goals they set for them­selves.

United had as­pi­ra­tions of mak­ing the play-offs in their third sea­son in League Two af­ter pro­mo­tion from the Con­fer­ence but they have failed to sus­tain a gen­uine pro­mo­tion chal­lenge.

Lewis said: “I’ve had 32 years as a player and coach and I’d say this was the most frus­trat­ing sea­son that I’ve ever known.

“We’re so dis­ap­pointed be­cause we’ve set such high stan­dards.

“We wanted to be in that top seven and I think if we had taken half the chances we’ve cre­ated, I think we would have def­i­nitely been in there.”

TALKS: Martin Pater­son
