Oxford United’s tough start to the season continued at the weekend as their loss to Fleetwood Town left them bottom of the League One table.
The Yellows do have at least a game – or in some cases two – in hand on those above them but it is clear that the U’s have struggled so far this campaign and they’ll be eager to put that right as soon as they can.
Here, though, we’re looking at a player that is at the club on loan – QPR’s Olamide Shodipo.
The winger has started the U’s last two league games in fact, with the defeat at Charlton his full debut after a brief appearance against MK Dons.
Fleetwood, meanwhile, also ended up 2-0 to the home side but Shodipo did his best to turn the tide of the game when on the pitch, racking up 73 minutes of action.
During that time, he had the best pass accuracy of any Oxford player that was on the pitch for at least the same amount of minutes, with a figure of 84.6%.
He also took four shots at the Fleetwood goal whilst involved in the game and, though evidently none went in, it was only he and James Henry that mustered more than one effort on goal for the U’s during the match, so it’s clear he had more attacking intent on Saturday at most.
Ultimately, it was another disappointing afternoon for Oxford as their struggles continue but Shodipo can take some positives and will just hope he can help turn things around soon.
