‘No one to fear now’ – Plenty of Oxford fans are delighted after League One leaders toppled

Oxford United fans are waking up this morning to find their side out of the bottom four of League One and hopefully on an upwards trajectory.

They’ve got a strong squad at the Kassam, but it hasn’t been clicking for one reason or another. Yesterday, finally, it clicked.

The U’s were excellent as they handed a defeat to Pompey, who saw their lead at the top of the table cut to just a single point. Cameron Brannagan and James Henry struck in the first half to give Karl Robinson’s side an unassailable lead. Despite Brett Pitman’s consolation, the home side held out.

It brought embarrassment to the Portsmouth social media team too, who posted a tweet on Friday which angered Robinson and his players. He was obviously delighted to get one over the leaders and send them down to the south coast with nothing to show for their endeavours, or their social media use.

Oxford will now be hoping to keep climbing the division and leave the spectre of League Two behind. With players such as Kashi and Jordan Graham joining an already talented squad, their fans are hopeful the worst of the season is now behind them.

Here’s what they’re saying on Twitter today.
