KARL Robinson revealed there is strong competition for places in the Oxford United squad ahead of the visit of Swindon Town.

The U’s boss made four changes to his starting XI at Portsmouth in midweek and saw a resilient display from his side, who came from behind to draw 1-1.

Robinson has almost the same personnel to pick from in tomorrow’s derby, with only Sean Clare missing after he collected his fifth booking of the season at Fratton Park.

The head coach welcomed the selection headache after a productive week that has seen United pick up four points from two Sky Bet League One games.

“I’ve got a very strong squad to pick from,” he said.

“Everyone’s in a good place and really motivated to do well.

“From my point of view they’re listening and improving.

“ We’re finding more of a balance, getting back to what we’re good at and tweaking the things we haven’t been so good at.

“Not much has changed, but results have been a bit more positive.”
