The Kiss of Death

Well, it seems like I put the mockers on the U's when I commented last month on Oxford's promising season. The team haven't won in the Conference since November and now lie second, but six points behind new leaders Dagenham and Redbridge.

To be honest I think they're lucky to only be six points behind. Dagenham's results have been kind to Oxford for the most part with the Daggers seemingly failing to take advantage of United's stumbling. Well no more; this week Woking beat the U's, while Dagenham won away at Grays to open up the 6 point gap. With only one going up by rights Oxford need to rediscover their early season form fast or risk the playoffs lottery and the problems of another season outside the Football League.

In not-much brighter news Dundee United aren't doing great either. The Arabs are Garry's team and now my adoptive Scottish side; they've twice been hammered 5-1 by Falkirk this season and got drubbed 5-0 by Rangers recently. I'm heading up to Dundee in February and we're going to a game... I just hope I'm not in for drubbings: at least Oxford are only losing by the odd goal and drawing games they should win, not getting spanked off the park!
