OXFORD United’s pressure to win tomorrow has not changed by last weekend’s victory, according to Chris Cadden.

Back-to-back games against Doncaster Rovers and Rotherham United were viewed as good indicators of the U’s play-off credentials.

The early signs are good, thanks to a 3-0 win in the first of those clashes.

But that does not mean a draw at the Millers tomorrow will necessarily be viewed as a good result.

Cadden said: “It’s not the way the gaffer will look at it – the pressure will be on us to win.

“I think going into last weekend, Doncaster and Rotherham were two big games for us to show where we are.

“We’ve done the first one and it’s now on to the next one.

“It will be a tough test and from I’ve seen they’re a really good, physical team which put crosses into the box.

“That will really test our defensive record right now.”

He added: “You can maybe look back, but we’re looking forward.

“We want to walk away with three points and that’s what our game plan will be.”

United’s task tomorrow is made tougher with fitness concerns over Matty Taylor (virus) and Alex Gorrin (ankle).

There will also be an enforced change in the back four, with Rob Dickie serving a one-game suspension.

But Cadden, who has impressed at right back, backed United’s squad to absorb the losses, especially given Dickie’s absence will mean Elliott Moore comes into the side.

He said: “With the squad we’ve got, we have two people for every position it’s really good.

“Injuries happen, but with the people coming in we’re more than happy.

“Whenever Elliott’s played he’s been great and has probably been unlucky not to play more, because Mous (John Mousinho) and Dickie have been outstanding.

“It’s the same all over the pitch, you’ve got to keep playing well or someone will take your place.”

  • OXFORD United supporters making the trip tomorrow have been urged to join a minute’s applause in the 16th minute.

It is in tribute to Rotherham fan Charlie Louise Hunter, who died aged 16 earlier this month.
