Potter has scored two goals in 33 games this season

Oxford United winger Alfie Potter has urged his side to improve defensively after they surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Wycombe on Saturday.

Potter scored the opener in a draw that saw the U's slip seven points below the play-offs in 11th.

"Being 2-0 up we should see it out - it was sloppy as a team and cost us two points," Potter, 22, told BBC Oxford.

"We need to make we don't concede goals like we do. If we do that then we'll be a good team in this league."

The ex-Peterborough winger continued: "We got grilled by the manager in the dressing room afterwards and rightly so. We let him down and we let ourselves down."

Saturday's game was Potter's first start since 12 March and the midfielder says he is too disappointed in the result to be pleased with his own performance.

"I scored but I'm just disappointed at the moment," he said.

"I've been on the bench most games so I was really grateful to get the start but we should've got the win.

"I haven't played in a long time so I know I had to come in and give a performance and hopefully I've done that.

"I've just got to make sure I give it my all when I get my chance and hopefully the manager chooses me for the next game."
