DEREK Fazackerley argued Oxford United needed to look where they can improve as much as bemoaning their bad fortune at AFC Wimbledon.

A 2-1 loss dragged the U’s closer to trouble in Sky Bet League One, while boosting the Dons’ survival hopes.

The visitors had good reason to feel aggrieved over the decision which saw Lyle Taylor open the scoring from the penalty spot.

Todd Kane equalised, but in a close contest the visitors created little in a second half when an unmarked Jon Meades bagged the winner.

Caretaker boss Fazackerley said: “I didn’t think there was any shortage of application or attitude.

“In fairness, I thought the first half was excellent and they had to change their system to counteract us, which prevented us from getting out quite as easily.

“They got the rub of the green with decisions, which have given them the win they were desperate for.

“I don’t want to harp on about it (the penalty decision) too much.

“We’ve got to also look at what we did ourselves. For all the possession we had in the first half, did we create enough?

“We had a couple of half-chances, but were we clinical enough? Possibly not.

“Could we have done better in wide areas? Yes I think we could.”

United’s new owner Sumrith Thanakarnjanasuth was at Kingsmeadow and spent Friday at the club’s training ground.

There is an expectation a managerial appointment will finally be made this week, but if he has been given an indication of what happens next, Fazackerley kept it to himself.

He said: “I just carry on as it is until I’m told different.

“The owner’s over and I had discussions with him on Friday.

“He was at the game and will be having his own thoughts over which way to take the club over the next few days.”
