OXFORD United manager Karl Robinson felt his struggling side should have taken more than a point at Southend United.

The U’s dropped to the foot of the League One table after securing a drab 0-0 draw at a wet Roots Hall.

But Robinson thought Oxford’s display, albeit after a slow start, warranted more than a share of the spoils.

“For 20 minutes we struggled with their rotation but then we started to get into it and we dominated the latter part of the first half and I thought second half it was all us,” said Robinson.

“You’ve got Ricky Holmes’ header, it should be a goal and John Mousinho’s header should be a goal too.

“But at this moment in time you know the place we’re at.

“However, the players’ mentality and application to this football club means they’re unbelievable people, they really are.”

The goalless draw ended a run of four successive defeats for Oxford but still saw them fall to the foot of the table following Plymouth Argyle’s 1-0 win against AFC Wimbledon.

But Robinson is certain his team will soon start to work their way out of trouble.

“I obviously don’t like where we are but it doesn’t bother me because our bad luck won’t last forever,” added the former MK Dons chief.
