OXFORD'S physical approach on Saturday came as no surprise according to Boro right back Ronnie Henry.

Graham Westley was incensed after Oxford striker James Constable clashed with Jon Ashton and Scott Laird but Boro's longest serving player said it was no more than he expected.

"We knew they were going to be physical so it wasn't too unexpected to be honest. They had some good physical players but we stood up to the test and we should have come out with more," Henry told The Comet.

Boro's unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday and the former Tottenham trainee felt they should have come away from the Kassam Stadium with at least a point.
