DANNY Hylton will be aiming to make the difference again for Oxford United tomorrow after claiming the winner in midweek.

The striker opened his account for the club with a precise finish three minutes from time against Bristol City.

It ensured a 2-1 win and pushed his claims for a first competitive start after coming off the bench in the opening two games.

Hylton, 25, was pleased to grab his first goal for the club, but insisted his priority was on making a contribution to the team, rather than aiming for any personal targets.

“I’m happy of course, it’s always nice to get off the mark,” he said.

“But I just go into every game and try to make a difference by working as hard as I can.

“If I can score goals as well it’s great.”
