THE Oxford Mail player ratings for Oxford United’s 3-1 win over Fleetwood Town in Sky Bet League One.

CONNAL TRUEMAN

Did not have the busiest night thanks to those in front of him. Assured despite his last-minute arrival, other than one nervous moment under a cross – 7

JAMIE HANSON

Sold short for Fleetwood’s goal and a couple of sloppy moments, but otherwise did well. Got forward to good effect until he went off with cramp – 7

LUKE MCNALLY

His first goal in English football set the tone for an impressive display. Generally solid defensively and starting to play forward more in possession – 8

WATCH: Highlights of last night's game

SAM LONG

You can always count on him on nights like these. Nothing got past him as he led a makeshift back line excellently. Brought the ball out from the back well, too. MAN OF THE MATCH – 8.5

STEVE SEDDON

His forward runs helped pin Fleetwood back in the first 30 minutes. Did okay defensively and got into good attacking positions, including giving the ball to Holland for the third goal – 7

JAMES HENRY

The second goal was down to his determination and decision-making. Captain for the night and stepped up to fill three different positions. Extra half-mark for a solid cameo at right back – 7.5

HERBIE KANE

Ran the game in the first 30 minutes, having claimed the assist for McNally’s opener. Just a shame that his underhit pass led to Fleetwood’s goal – 7.5

CAMERON BRANNAGAN

Another who you want in your side when facing adversity. Took his goal well and pressed relentlessly to help United stay on the front foot for much of the game – 8

BILLY BODIN

Quieter than hoped and lost possession in dangerous areas a couple of times. Could not convert a difficult chance in the first half, but tidy enough with the ball – 6

GAVIN WHYTE

Still has work to do if he is going to be an effective No 9. Fleetwood’s back line dealt with him relatively easily and perhaps should have done better one-on-one after the break. Linked attacks reasonably well. BOOKED – 6

NATHAN HOLLAND

Goal was a timely reminder of his quality when United needed it. Gave the full-backs plenty to think about and could have had an assist for McGuane, too – 8
