KARL Robinson bemoaned simple mistakes which cost Oxford United dearly in defeat at Fleetwood Town.

Elliott Moore's header had put the visitors on course for a draw, but the Cod Army hit back to win 2-1.

While Robinson was adamant Shandon Baptiste was fouled for Fleetwood's opener, their two goals came in similar fashion - Paddy Madden and Peter Clarke profiting after the U's failed to clear a set piece.

Robinson, whose side are now 20th in Sky Bet League One after winning just one of their opening seven games, said: "It was a very strange game. I don’t think we played particularly well.

"I think we looked quite strong and disciplined out of possession.

"It’s been that sort of performance you’ve not seen from us this year where we’ve not been fluent or in possession a great deal.

"We felt we denied them opportunities and their two goals have come from players just switching off in the box.

"We didn’t create a great deal, I can’t say we deserved to win.

"I think a draw would have been about the right result.

"The players know where things lie and the generic basics of a set piece where you switch off from a second phase is inexcusable.

"We spend hours trying to get it right and we’re disappointed."
