Kitson hints at retirement

Oxford striker Dave Kitson has hinted that he could retire at the end of the current season.

The 34-year-old scored his fourth goal in 32 games at the weekend as his strike helped the U's to a 2-0 win over Plymouth, but he admits he is losing motivation to play the game.

Speaking to BBC Oxford, Kitson said: "I think I could go on for another season, it's just having the motivation to do it."

He added: "I want to play to win something and we have the chance to win something. Sport is about being successful and it's about your kids looking up to you.

"We've got a real chance to do that. I was gutted not to win anything with Sheffield United when we got to the play-offs (in 2013).

"I'll be gutted if we don't win anything this year, but if we do or we don't, I will probably lean towards finishing up and I won't have any regrets about that."

Oxford occupy the final play-off spot but are just one point clear of York, who they face on Good Friday.
