LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: ROBINSON'S OXFORD HIT SIX
The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Oxford United for their 6 – 0 victory against Lincoln City on Saturday 21st September 2019.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,500 competitive matches in professional football.
Oxford United Manager Karl Robinson will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.
A Tariqe Fosu hat trick helped Oxford United to a record 6-0 win at Lincoln City this afternoon. Fosu's goals plus great finishes from Jamie Mackie, James Henry and Matty Taylor gave United their first away win of the season as well as their best ever away win in the Football League.
United couldn’t have wished for a better start when Fosu put them ahead inside five minutes. A ball into Mackie, preferred up front to Taylor, was returned to the former Charlton wing man who shifted it out of his feet and then got just enough power on his shot to beat keeper Josh Vickers and give his side the lead.
