NO team in the top four divisions occupied more positions than Oxford United in 2020/21.

A graphic shared by football analysis expert Ben Mayhew (@experimental361) shows how many days each club spent in each place of their respective tables.

It reveals the U's were in the Sky Bet League One relegation zone for 50 days, while they were in the play-offs for just one week in total - despite finishing sixth.

United's roller coaster campaign is also illustrated in that they occupied every position from fifth downwards over the course of the season - the joint-highest across the top four divisions, alongside Championship side Barnsley.

A slow start left Karl Robinson's side struggling towards the bottom for the first three months, before they began to climb away in December.

It means the position they occupied most throughout the season was actually 21st, where the U's spent 29 days in total.

United's record-breaking nine-match unbeaten run saw them challenging for the top six by the end of January, but they did not break into the play-offs until they beat Gillingham on April 17.

The U's went into the final day of the season seventh in the table, but snatched sixth place from Portsmouth thanks to a 4-0 win over Burton Albion, while their rivals lost 1-0 to Accrington Stanley.

They spent just four days in sixth, plus three in fifth.
