United's reserves drew 2-2 at Northampton last night, with goals from Adam Hamp and Chris Hackett, a couple of youth teamers. Also in the side were Chrissy Allen, Australian triallist Paul Roberts (who was later released as “he wouldn't make us any better), and a couple of French triallists, Cedric Chabert from Valenciennes and Johan  more ]

United ended Wycombe's 100% Manor record, although they were unable to convert their superior chances into goals. Still, unbeaten in four and another clean sheet must be pleasing, considering the absence of Anthrobus, for whom this was the first game of three that he'll miss.

A draw up at Blackpool was probably just about a fair result, Derek Lilley scoring his first goal for Oxford midway through the second half to equalise a Blackpool goal which, although against the run of play, didn't come as much of a surprise.

Oxford have signed, on a non-contract basis, Christopher James Lambert who used to play for Reading. The diminutive 5'7″ winger was Reading's Young Player of the Year in 1996/97 but has fallen out of favour with the management at Madjeski.
