OLI Johnson is relishing the chance to take on a team with plenty of ambition this weekend after being frustrated by bottom-half sides in recent weeks.

The U’s’ last four games at the Kassam Stadium have come against struggling opponents who have set out to defend in numbers and settle for a point, with Macclesfield Town claiming a 1-1 draw last weekend.

But that will not be the case when npower League Two leaders Swindon visit.

Johnson, who has scored two goals in the last four games, believes United are better suited to playing teams nearer the top of the table.

He said: “It’s a nice game to have on the back of the (Macclesfield) result.

“I think we’ll be happier playing a team that will come out at us because they’ll try to take the game to us, just as we will to them.

“Hopefully that will benefit us, rather than playing a team who have come here to sit back and possibly take a point.”

The 24-year-old is expecting an electric atmosphere at the Kassam, but says the team will have added motivation after dropping two points against the Silkmen last Saturday.

He said: “I imagine the ground will be rocking, so hopefully we can redeem ourselves and put in a better performance than last weekend.”
