JOSH Ruffels says every Oxford United outfield player needs to share the scoring burden as they attempt to end their drought tonight.

The side have gone four full games without finding the back of the net ahead of the Checkatrade Trophy third round tie.

Ruffels was the last U’s player to score, netting a stoppage-time equaliser at Doncaster Rovers before Christmas.

And the left back thinks it is everyone’s responsibility to get them going again ahead of Saturday’s game at Fleetwood Town in Sky Bet League One.

He said: “I think so, even defenders – set pieces could be key.

“As long as we work hard to try to create openings, someone’s going to have to chip in with a goal.

“We’re confident we can do it.

“It’s a bit crazy I’m the last one to score.”

He added: “It would start a positive week and then we can build into Fleetwood, which is a huge game.

“Hopefully we can put in a good performance with a couple of goals.”

With a quarter-final spot up for grabs, Cameron Brannagan is champing at the bit to play after missing Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup defeat at Brentford through suspension.

He said: “This is a big situation – I want to play at Wembley and win the cup.

“You’ve got to be positive in every way you can.

“We have injuries and we’ve not been on a great run, but the only thing we can do is train hard and when the next game comes to try get something out of it and move forward.”
