Oxford boss Chris Wilder insisted his side had been in full control against Barnet as they defeated them in the FA Cup.

The visitors were well worth victory as they registered 21 attempts on goal and hit the woodwork twice in the first half, but it took second-half goals from James Constable and Sean Rigg to make the game safe.

Barnet joint-head coach Edgar Davids brought himself on for his FA Cup debut at 39 years of age but could not turn the tide as Oxford dominated possession to leave manager Wilder purring.

"It was a good afternoon for us. We were good all round," he said. "We were in full control throughout, and I was disappointed we went in at the break level as we were so much the better team in the first half.

"But we got the important goal after the break and it gave us a lift and from there we were comfortable. You have to be right and be careful, but we were still far the better team.

"The win keeps the momentum going and keeps the good form. This just maintains the football we have been playing and the results we have been getting."
