Oxford United striker Tom Craddock says the U's will be looking to end Accrington's eight-game unbeaten run when the sides meet on Saturday.

Stanley lie eighth in the League Two table having not lost a match since 12 March, while Oxford are seven points below them in 11th.

Craddock, 24, told BBC Oxford: "Stanley are winning games at the moment and we hope to put an end to that on Saturday.

"They're a strong team, who are pushing for play-offs so it'll be tough."

Craddock, who joined the U's from Luton in September, added: "They [Accrington] had a lot of games called off in the winter period. They've had a run of home games and they've managed to win just about everyone.

"Accrington came here earlier in the season before I came and from what I heard they gave a really good account of themselves.

"It's a tough place to go, they've got a lot of young players who obviously want to do well so to me it's not surprising they're doing well."
