OXFORD United boss Karl Robinson is delighted with the way his side are becoming a force to be reckoned with in the final third.

The U’s take on Plymouth Argyle tomorrow in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup on the back of a convincing 4-2 win over Rochdale in midweek.

United have scored three goals or more in five of their last eight games – three of which have come on the road.

While a first away win in Sky Bet League One still eludes Robinson’s side, they are finding the net with more regularity.

The U’s boss has been encouraged by the way his side are sharing the goals around, with James Henry and Marcus Browne joint top-scorers with seven.

Gavin Whyte has found the net six times, while Jamie Mackie is starting to discover his form, netting twice in his last three games.

Robinson is hoping his side can give the Pilgrims plenty to think about at Home Park.

He said: “It’s the way my teams are set up.

“Ten goals in the last four home games – that’s how my teams should play.

“The second and third goals on Tuesday were exactly how I want my side to score.

“I want to get the ball into the wide areas and get good crosses in with a load of people in the box to score.”

United moved four points clear of the relegation zone when returning to winning ways with victory over Rochdale.

Before their defeat at Bradford City last weekend, the U’s had put together a nine-match unbeaten run which included seven clean sheets.

But Robinson’s side proved on Tuesday they could out-score their opponents if they are unable to keep it tight at the back.

He said: “My concern when I first started was that when we conceded a goal, we found it difficult to score.

“But we now know if we concede, we can win a game comfortably.

“When we’re in front, we’re difficult to catch and teams have to change their game.”

United take a break from league action to face a Plymouth side they beat 2-0 last month.

The victory kick-started the U’s superb run and Robinson feels his side have become a more dangerous proposition.

He said: “We know we’re a better team now and some of our better players are finding their form which is exciting.”
