THE Oxford Mail player ratings after Oxford United slumped to a 2-0 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers in Sky Bet League One.


Not able to do much about either of the goals on a frustrating night. Distribution was poor on a couple of occassions – 5.5


Replaced at half-time after being given a torrid time by the brilliant Anis Mehmeti. Has been able to hold his own at right back when coming up against pacy wingers, but caught out by the trickery and craft of Mehmeti. BOOKED – 4.5


Got dragged across to cover Anderson for the first goal and was unable to stop Mehmeti playing the ball across to Sam Vokes for a tap-in – 5.5


Moved out to right back in the second half, and put in a tenacious display. Pressed high up the pitch and looked to try and make things happen from an advanced position. MAN OF THE MATCH – 6


Quiet night which started at left back and then moved into the centre of the defence in the second half. Relatively untroubled in the second period – 5.5

One lovely neat and turn which created a chance for Billy Bodin highlighted what he has in his locker. Needs to turn it into regular goals and assists though – 5.5


Ineffective in the middle of the park and was brought off after an hour. A wake-up call if needed that in certain games, United need a more natural fit in holding midfield role – 5


Had a handful of opportunities that failed to trouble Max Stryjek in the Wanderers goal – 5.5


Plenty of opportunities to conjure something up with the number of set pieces United had, and while the delivery was more often than not decent enough, teammates couldn’t make it count – 5.5


Worked hard for the team as you’d expect from the Swansea City loanee but was starved of service in the No 9 role – 5


Looked bright in spells, displaying his strength to get into dangerous areas but final ball or shot lacked the quality to cause any trouble – 5.5


Brandon Fleming (for Anderson, 46)

Was unfortunate to not be in the starting line-up after such a strong display against Ipswich Town. Brought a better balance to the back four after coming on – 5.5

Matty Taylor (for McGuane, 61)

Brought on with Gatlin O’Donkor as United sought a route back into game but nothing came his way in the final third – 5

Gatlin O’Donkor (for Wildschut, 61)

Put himself about, chasing and harrying the Wycombe backline but that was as far as it got in terms of making an impact – 5.5

Tyler Goodrham (for Joseph, 71)

Like O’Donkor, his fresh legs brought a ray of vibrancy to the United attack but ultimately he wasn’t able to have an effect on the game – 5.5

Unused: McGinty, Negru, Findlay.

Substitutes who come on after the 75th minute do not get a rating.
