KARL Robinson is planning to watch a player in the Netherlands tomorrow as Oxford United step up their attempts to bring in firepower before next week’s transfer deadline.

A planned trip to Scotland yesterday was scrapped after the U’s hit a dead end with one target.

Robinson, United’s head coach, said: “I’ve got a game to watch in Holland and a meeting there on Friday.

“Then I’ll either go up to watch Barnsley or Burton on Saturday.”

There is only one match in the top-flight Eredivisie tomorrow – NAC Breda versus ADO Den Haag – but there are several fixtures that night in the second tier Eerste Divisie.

Robinson said: “I must have done 6,000 or 7,000 miles in my car since this window opened.

“It’s been up to Scotland, across to Europe.

“It’s been an unbelievable few weeks, but hopefully it’s all for the success and sustainability of the club.”
