BEN Woodburn is on a mission to take his game to the next level by making a bigger contribution at the sharp end for Oxford United.

Karl Robinson’s men head to Lincoln City this afternoon looking to improve on an away record which has seen them score just four goals in five matches.

Woodburn has one of those, at Bristol Rovers, but the Liverpool loanee believes U’s supporters are yet to see the best of him.

The 19-year-old said: “I don’t think so. I can add a lot more goals and assists into my game.

“Hopefully I can show it.

“There’s always little parts to improve on in your game.

“I don’t think you’ll ever have a perfect performance but that’s the main aim for me at the moment – get a few more goals and assists.”

Woodburn has played in a more advanced role during United’s last two games.

On Tuesday night at Bolton Wanderers, that saw him looking to combine with Matty Taylor.

And although the game finished goalless, the Wales international saw promising signs to take into today’s game at Sincil Bank.

He said: “I felt like Matty and I linked up well, we were unlucky not to score.

“We’re all getting an idea of how each of us play. As the games are going on we are getting a better connection.

“He makes excellent runs and I think it’s only a matter of time until he gets his first goal and he’s flying.”

U’s boss Karl Robinson could name the same XI which started Tuesday night’s goalless draw at Bolton Wanderers.

Shandon Baptiste, Jamie Mackie and Elliott Moore missed the midweek trip, but could return to the squad today.

Lincoln have doubts over centre back Michael Bostwick and midfielder Jorge Grant, while Lee Frecklington and Tom Pett are long-term absentees.


Lincoln C: from Vickers, Eardley, Bolger, Shackell, Toffolo, Morell, Connolly, Anderson, Payne, Andrade, Walker, Akinde, Chapman, Bostwick, Grant, O’Connor, Melbourne, Lewis, Smith.

Oxford Utd: from Eastwood, Cadden, Dickie, Mousinho, Ruffels, Brannagan, Gorrin, Henry, Woodburn, Fosu, Taylor, Mackie, Agyei, Hall, Forde, Baptiste, Sykes, Thorne, Moore, Long, Stevens.
