Burton v Oxford

Burton 0-0 Oxford

Burton Albion   0 - 0   Oxford Utd

Oxford marked their return to the Football League with a goalless draw at former non-league rivals Burton.

Chris Wilder's side produced a solid opening-day display as the U's claimed their first Football League point for more than four years.

Russell Penn had Burton's best chance after the break as he saw a close-range attempt go over the United crossbar.

Asa Hall went close for the visitors, but his shot was well saved by Brewers keeper Adam Legzdins.


Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:
"It was excellent. We asked the lads this season to be more resilient and you've seen the attitude of the players, particularly people getting back.

"Greg Pearson probably epitomises the team today. He made a tackle on the edge of the box with twenty minutes to go after he'd run his socks off up front by himself and that's what we want players to do. I want them to run through brick walls and he certainly did that.

"Listen, first game of the season, we'll get better, but we need to make sure we don't concede silly goals."
