OXFORD United's players will be brought into the training ground tomorrow for a post mortem examination of their 4-0 mauling at Peterborough United.

The home side played for the final half-hour with ten men, but were still able to double their lead.

After a closely-fought opening 30 minutes, United were outclassed and overpowered from the moment Sikiri Dembele opened the scoring.

Match report: Peterborough Utd 4, Oxford Utd 0

Ivan Toney added a brace, before Josh Knight struck in stoppage time.

U's head coach Karl Robinson, who was serving a touchline ban after picking up his fourth booking of the season in midweek, admitted he tore into his players after the game.

And they now have an unscheduled session tomorrow to pick through the bones of a sobering result.

He said: "I don’t think I can come in on Monday and not talk about this game, but equally I’ve got to talk about the next game.

"So the best way round it is getting them in, getting the physios and massages in, get it done right and then when they come in on Monday we only talk about Burton."

He added: "We switched off in key areas that we told them they were good at.

"They let you have possession and hit you on the break.

"We were weak in a lot of our tackles and pulled out of one or two things. We looked a bit off it in a number of different areas.

"It’s the first time I’ve really had to lose it with this team and they know exactly where I stand.

"That’s not what is expected and we’ll go through the goals tomorrow morning."
