OXFORD City boss Mark Jones is demanding a response from his players when they face Woking tonight (7.45).

A 5-3 defeat against Hampton & Richmond Borough on Saturday was a fifth straight loss at home in Vanarama National League South.

Jones was bitterly disappointed with the performance against a team who had struggled for goals in recent weeks.

And it gets no easier for City, who host a Woking side who will go top this evening if they avoid defeat.

Jones said: “They are going to be motivated going for the championship.

“They’re big and strong and we’ve got to dust ourselves down.

“We have to recover and analyse where we went wrong, which for me was a lack of work rate out of possession.

“We have to try to bounce back.”

Both sides have two players on loan from Oxford United.

Armani Little and Harvey Bradbury are in the Woking squad, while Owen James and Albie Hopkins play for City.

Elsewhere, Thame United have an immediate chance to climb back into the Evo-Stik South League Division 1 Central play-off places.

A draw on Saturday saw Mark West’s side drop out of the top five.

But they would rise three places back up to fifth with a victory tonight against leaders Peterborough Sports.
