Manager and Harris Nominated for EFL Monthly Awards

It was a strong April for Oxford United as the team delivered to secure their place in the Sky Bet League One play-off semi-finals.

Victory on the final game of the season at Exeter City secured fifth spot and a date with Peterborugh United for a place at Wembley Stadium. 

It brought an end to the month of April, where the U’s won four of six games, drawing once.

Picking up form at the right time, the squad have now been recognised in the Sky Bet EFL awards, with Des Buckingham up for Manager of the Month and Mark Harris for Player of the Month.

The manager is nominated for his achievements of taking Oxford into the play-offs for the first time in three years.

In the month, the team picked up 13 points and scored an amazing 16 goals, including a 5-0 win and two 4-0 victories.

For Harris, he bagged six goals in six games to help take the team into the semi-finals.

The Welsh forward also grabbed an assist, as his fine form included the crucial opening goal in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Exeter.

We wish both every success, with the award winners announced later in the week.
