Oxford United striker Danny Hylton says he "can't wait" for a chance to secure League Two automatic promotion.

The U's know a home win against Wycombe on Saturday in their final game will secure a top-three finish.

"It's the biggest game that I've ever played in," Hylton told BBC Radio Oxford. "We set out to achieve promotion at the start of the season."

A draw will be enough for Oxford to be promoted if Bristol Rovers fail to beat Dagenham & Redbridge.

"I think we deserve promotion, but we won't deserve it if we don't win on Saturday," Hylton added.

"Bristol Rovers will be thinking exactly the same, so we're right up for it. I wish the game was being played today."

Former Aldershot striker Hylton, 27, has scored 14 goals in all competitions for Oxford this season and knows Wycombe will provide a tough test.

"We're fully aware that they want to come and spoil our party," he added. "We're going to have to make sure we match their work-rate, their hunger and their physicality."
