Michael Duberry believes Oxford are still capable of winning promotion from League Two despite their recent run of poor form.
The Us are currently 10th, just two points behind the play-off places, but 11 points behind the automatic positions, having not won in the league since October.
Despite currently being sidelined with a groin injury, the 36-year-old remains in confident mood, believing automatic promotion to still be a realistic target.
He told BBC Radio Oxford: "There's no reason we can't set our ambitions on automatic promotion.
"A run of games and we're back up there. We just need to get our form back together.
"We've still got to play everyone again. We'll take every game as it comes and then who knows?"
