WILL Goodwin said it was a ‘bittersweet moment’ to score on his home debut for Oxford United, but not take all three points.

The 21-year-old striker thought he had secured a win for the U’s against Northampton Town, only for Tony Springett to score for the Cobblers in stoppage time, and make it 2-2 at Grenoble Road.

“It was good to score on my home debut, but it was a bit of a bittersweet moment not to get the three points that we deserved,” said Goodwin.

“When you concede so late on and don’t take all three points, it’s really gutting. We dominated the game, so it’s a tough one to take.”

Goodwin stooped low to head in a cross from fellow January signing, Owen Dale, and is relishing that sort of service going forward.

He said: “I get along with Owen, we’re from a similar part of the country, and it was great for him to get the assist.

“I love crosses coming in the box. I feel like that’s where I’m going to get my goals, so if them balls come in, I’m going to do my best to get on the end of them.

“There were a few balls that came in, that I thought I might get on the end of, and it wasn’t to be, but I hope I get a few more.”
