Raynes relishes Swindon clash

Oxford United defender Michael Raynes says he is relishing Wednesday's local derby against rivals Swindon Town in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

"It's sort of a no pressure game, it's a cup game, you just go out there and try and win," he told BBC Radio Oxford. "The pressure is away from the league, it's a local derby and you can't ask for much more on a Wednesday night."

Raynes added the U's were looking forward to testing themselves against League One opposition and hopefully causing an upset.

"The rivalry is more for the fans. We just look at it like we've got League One opposition and it's a great day to test ourselves. There are worse things you could be doing on a Wednesday night than play in a local derby and we'll be looking to cause an upset."
