KARL Robinson has defended his decision to switch formation for the midweek defeat at Wycombe Wanderers.

Oxford United lined up in a 3-5-2 during the 2-1 win at home to Ipswich Town, but reverted back to their customary 4-3-3 at Wycombe.

Robinson though is adamant that 4-3-3 is what work best for the U’s.

He said: “It’s always going to be a contentious conversation because people have got their own opinions on what’s the right way of playing games of football.

“It’s a system that suits this team better than any other system.

“Our performance on Tuesday night was far better than Wycombe’s performance, we had far more territorial duels won in our favour and 19 shots.

“The biggest problem was two of them were on target and that’s the big thing we’ve got to change.”

United this afternoon head to a Burton Albion side which has conceded nine goals in their last two league games.

Robinson said: “That’s got no relevance to us because that’s in their last two, not in their next game.

“You can imagine how hungry they are because they are in a difficult situation, you’re probably playing them at one of the most difficult times and we respect that.”
