ALFIE Potter is hoping Oxford United’s supporters stick with the side again tomorrow.

The side are on a poor run and will be looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat at Port Vale on Monday when they take on Accrington Stanley.

Despite slipping to 19th in the npower League Two table, the U’s fans have remained largely upbeat during games.

It was most clearly illustrated earlier this month, when a positive atmosphere at the Kassam helped United come from behind to beat AFC Wimbledon.

Potter admitted it made a huge difference and urged supporters to stick with them.

He said: “The fans have stuck with us even though results haven’t been what they should have been. “I’m not surprised because the fans have always been great, but when you lose six on the bounce you expect a few moans.

But the majority of fans stood up and you could see the lift it gave us against Wimbledon.”

Potter is keen to play a key role tomorrow as he looks to recapture the form which saw him make a flying start to the campaign.

He said: “I want to get back, both individually and as a team, to how we were playing at the start of the season.”
