Oxford boss Chris Wilder says his strike pair have proven they had sufficient firepower to get the U's climbing the table.

Tom Craddock grabbed his fifth goal in three games to help Oxford to just their second League Two away win of the season as they beat fellow strugglers Wycombe 3-1.

The 26-year-old striker, who scored four last weekend at Accrington, set up the first for James Constable before firing past Nikki Bull at the start of the second-half. Joel Grant pulled one back before Johnny Mullins headed in a third but Wilder's attacking partnership were the post-match focus.

"Strikers get judged on goals and it was great to see them both score," Wilder said.

"But their overall play was good as well. Going forward we maybe could have moved the ball a bit better and I was possibly disappointed we didn't get a couple more but generally I thought we dominated. It was a whole team effort, everyone played well.

"They really led from the front. I should imagine the two Wycombe centre-halves will be very tired boys. The first two goals were both fantastic play from us, and two great finishes."
