Teenage striker Robert Hall has made quite an impression since joining Oxford on loan from West Ham.

Hall has scored four times in seven appearances for the Us - two of which have been winning goals - as Chris Wilder's team fly high in Npower League Two.

The young forward's latest strike was a stoppage time equaliser against Macclesfield on Saturday, which ensured Oxford climbed up to third position.

It has certainly been a fruitful learning curve for Hall, who says he came to the Kassam Stadium with no personal goal target - although his dad had other ideas!

"I didn't personally [set myself a goals target], but my Dad told me he wanted me to get a goal a game," the 18-year-old told the Oxford Mail.

"So although it's going well here at the moment, it needs to be even better for him!


"My Dad has always really helped me and has been a big influence. He is always pushing me to be even better and that's a good thing.

"I agree with him as well because if I play a game and have not scored a goal then it doesn't feel that I have done my job.

"So that's my target - to score in every game I play."
