OXFORD United supporters left the Kassam Stadium in buoyant mood after a convincing 3-0 win over Doncaster Rovers.

Two goals from James Henry sandwiched a Cameron Brannagan strike as the U's rose to eighth in Sky Bet League One and stretched their unbeaten run to eight games in all competitions.

Karl Robinson's men controlled the game for much of the afternoon, with United fan Robin Dunford feeling optimistic after the performance against a side who reached last season's play-offs.

The Wantage resident told us on Facebook Live: "We've beaten some teams recently that you think we should beat.

"But Doncaster looked a decent side - they passed the ball around and kept possession well, but didn't really threaten us.

"It's really encouraging to see us beat what looks like a decent side, that if we're going to challenge for the play-offs they're going to be there or thereabouts as well.

"It's good to see us totally dominate the game from start to finish."

He added: "It's a good measure of where we are. To beat the teams we're going to have to finish above is great news."

The scoresheet represented Henry and Brannagan's personal duel for the mantle of United's top scorer, with the former moving to eight goals for the season, one above his teammate.

With in-form striker Matty Taylor missing today's game through illness, Dunford was pleased to see other U's players pose a threat.

He said: "There's real competition for goals, not just from one or two players. 

"Taylor's a great player, he tore Gillingham to shreds and we look a different side when he's in the team.

"We were concerned coming up here that he wasn't playing today.

"Jamie Mackie is a different player, he's never going to score 20 goals a season like Taylor can.

"But he works hard, he brings other players into the game, he pulls the defence all over the place and we've adapted to play to his strengths.

"It was good to see the standing ovation when he came off because fans sometimes don't appreciate forwards who don't score."

United are just one point outside the play-offs and the U's fan admitted he was starting to believe they can make the top six.

He said: "I would have said no at the beginning of the season, but the way they're getting results shows there's a lot of resilience in the team."
