GINO van Kessel says Oxford United cannot wait for tomorrow’s game at Blackpool to have another chance at showing their quality.

The U’s have a chance to turn a good week into a great one if they can become the first team to win at Bloomfield Road in Sky Bet League One this season.

After Gillingham were swept aside 3-0 last weekend, Pep Clotet’s side produced more breathtaking football against Bradford City on Tuesday night.

Although the Bantams’ stoppage-time goal to claim a 2-2 draw stung, the players are impatient to show what they can do.

Van Kessel said: “I think everybody feels the same.

“We’re playing beautiful football and showed all the quality, even from the back.

“Ricardinho is not afraid to play with the winger, whereas people in other teams just kick long balls.

“We really want to play football and this is what people want to see. We can show it.”

He added: “(Bradford) was really frustrating.

“In the end we drew and we’re one point closer to where we want to go.

“I think we have one of the best teams and I still believe we can end up in the top-four.”

Van Kessel came off the bench to set up both goals as United came from behind to lead City.

It was the start of a good week for the 24-year-old, who has just moved out of his hotel and into a house in Stanton Harcourt.

He already has something to put on the mantelpiece, after winning the vote for League One’s goal of the month.

The spectacular strike came just three minutes after coming off the bench for his U’s debut, against Portsmouth.

Just one of Van Kessel’s six appearances for the side have come as a substitute, but while the former Ajax apprentice is eager to start, his priority is making the game time count.

He said: “You have to be ready.

“It’s hard for some guys – they always want to play, but I see it that if you can play the last 20 minutes, you have to show your quality.

“If you do then next week you could get 30 or 45 minutes and then the next week you can start.

“If you can show it again as a starter then you will be important for the team, which is the most important thing.”
