LAST WORD | Josh Murphy on Clinching Play-Off Spot

Josh Murphy has been a shining light in Oxford United’s bright season and the winger was as vital as ever in Saturday’s win over Exeter City to secure a play-off spot for the U’s.

The former Norwich City player has been sensational since the turn of the year, and on Saturday in Exeter he helped set up the crucial second goal by winning a penalty for Cameron Brannagan to score in a 2-1 win.

The victory means United will now take on Peterborough United with the first-leg at home on Saturday night, with the return leg on Wednesday May 8.

After the victory at St James Park, Murphy spoke to the United club channels, which you can watch in full here.

He said: “Everyone is buzzing. We came here knowing that we needed a win and hopefully, things would go our way and they did. 

“The fans’ reaction at full-time was priceless and that is what football is all about.

“We now have two big games and hopefully we can get to Wembley.

“Everyone gets into football for the hope and excitement. We now have two big games to get to Wembley and then go one step further.
