Wilder wants out of 'poxy' league

Oxford boss Chris Wilder is desperate for United to win promotion, labelling the Conference a "poxy league".

United would have secured a play-off place this season had they not been docked five points in January for fielding an unregistered player.

"Boy, do I want to get out of this league," Wilder told BBC Oxford after his side lost 2-1 to Northwich.

"We need to take it out of people's hands by producing a winning team and get out of this poxy league."

Sunday's home defeat - watched by over 10,000 fans - was a disappointing end to the season for the U's.

But Wilder is determined that next term will be a successful one for the former top-flight club, who were relegated from the League in 2006.

He said: "I think everyone at this football club wants to get out of this league and never come back."
