“Ourselves and Oxford have been in a very similar position for the majority of the season, being in and around the play-offs and in and around the top three.
“I suppose both of us are looking to see if we can make that next step into the top three.
“We have to be happy really, we’ve had 18 months of success and if you look at that success it’s relative.”
