JON Obika believes Oxford United may need to get physical with each other in training to prepare for Saturday’s trip to Wycombe Wanderers.

The pressure is on Karl Robinson’s side ahead of the short trip down the M40, following their 2-1 home defeat to Coventry City on Sunday.

They are second bottom in the table, having won just once in Sky Bet League One this season.

United will be backed by a sold-out away end at Adams Park, for what is usually a lively contest.

After the Sky Blues defeat, boss Karl Robinson suggested his side that “when a team gets in our face we don’t really want to be there”.

Obika, who came off the bench to score his first goal of the campaign, knows a reaction is needed – and it must begin in the build-up.

He said: “We have to push each other in training. I feel that’s where it starts.

“If it means getting aggressive with each other in training, then whatever it takes.

“We have to fight back for sure.”

He added: “There’s no time to look back and feel sorry for ourselves.

“With all the Tuesday games we’ve had not as much work can be done (in training).

“This is a free week to make sure we’re right for Saturday.”

As well as Saturday, United have sold all their tickets for the Carabao Cup tie with Manchester City later this month.

The final seats for the third round tie on September 25 were bought yesterday.

With City’s 1,197-strong allocation expected to be snapped up quickly when they go on sale today, it is set to be the first sell-out at the Kassam Stadium since the FA Cup tie with Newcastle United in February 2017.
