The home side dominated the game and tested Stevenage goalkeeper Chris Day on numerous occasions but could not find the decisive goal.

“We had to work really hard for it in the first half,” said the 46-year-old, speaking to The Comet, after the Hertfordshire club kept their third clean sheet of the season.

“The game could have got away…we sat in, we worked hard defensively, they had a moment or two but nothing that was causing us any real concern.

“We tightened up a bit down the right hand side [in the] second half because the boy on the left hand side for them [Callum O’Dowda] had caused us our biggest difficulties.

“Once we tightened that up in the second half and we got on top of the game we went 4-4-2 to try to change things and try to take the game forward and in those moments when we changed to that shape in the last 20 minutes we had a couple of moments.”

The result leaves Stevenage 15th in the league, with Oxford climbing out the relegation zone on goal difference.
