OXFORD United chairman Sumrith ‘Tiger’ Thanakarnjanasuth has urged supporters to stay positive when they visit Brentford tomorrow.

The away allocation at Griffin Park was quickly sold out, but the mood has been hit by three successive defeats in Sky Bet League One.

There were boos from the travelling support following the 3-0 loss at Plymouth Argyle on New Year’s Day, with boss Karl Robinson coming in for criticism.

In a statement on United’s website, the owner wrote: “The Plymouth game in particular was not up to the standards we have set and the players looked tired.

“We can only apologise to the fans who made that long journey.”

He added: “With a sold out away end at Brentford on Saturday we have the chance to show the real Oxford United again.

“We must show a reaction and then we have some massive games at home coming up including Portsmouth, Barnsley and Sunderland.

“It is time to stick together, get behind Karl, Shaun (Derry), Faz (Derek Fazackerley) and the players and be as positive as we can despite the last three results.”
