JAMES Henry felt Oxford United could count themselves unfortunate not to be in tonight’s Emirates FA Cup fourth round draw.

Neal Maupay’s 80th-minute penalty was the only goal of their tie at Brentford, undoing an organised performance from the visiting Sky Bet League One underdogs.

Henry believed the U’s repaired some of their confidence – and thought the performance warranted a replay.

He said: “We took an established Championship club all the way.

“They were the ones on the back foot at the end, it wasn’t as if we were getting passed off the pitch.

“I think we gave a really good account of ourselves.

“We frustrated them and limited their chances. In the second half our game plan was spot-on.

“We let them have it when we knew we couldn’t press – and then pressed when we could.

“Everything was going to plan and we’re disappointed we didn’t get anything out of the game.”

Aside from the result, the day was soured for United by Shandon Baptiste being carried off with a knee injury on his return from 11 weeks out following shoulder surgery.

Henry said: “Hopefully it’s not too serious, but it didn’t look great from my angle.

“I think it’s disappointing, but you have to try to continue to play in the right way.

“Us older boys had to try to make sure it doesn’t affect a few of the younger lads. I thought we did that.”
