APPLETON: LET’S ALL BE PROUD

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

LEAGUE ONE

OX­FORD’S play-off am­bi­tions may be in­creas­ingly un­re­al­is­tic, but man­ager Michael Appleton in­sists ev­ery­one at the club needs to re­mem­ber how far they have come.

Appleton took over in 2014 with the club still in League Two.

“We’re nearly three years into the project, but the re­al­ity is we’ve gone from a mid-ta­ble League Two side to hope­fully a top-half League One side with a cou­ple of cup fi­nals in the mix and pro­duc­ing some qual­ity play­ers,” Appleton said.

“I think it’s im­por­tant from a per­spec­tive point of view that peo­ple re­alise that.”
