The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

THIS sea­son is far from over, but Ox­ford United boss Michael Ap­ple­ton is already plot­ting an as­sault on the ti­tle next year.

The U’s are suf­fi­ciently clear of the bot­tom four and, though they can still reach the play-offs, it is likely they will re­main in League One – lead­ing Ap­ple­ton to plan for the fu­ture.

“Most of the play­ers I bring into the side will be to com­pete in the Cham­pi­onship,” he said.

“I think we need a few ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers who’ve been very good at this level to help them and get them to where they want to be. Then we re­place them. That’s how foot­ball works.”
