Rovers triumphed 1-0 after a backs-to-the-wall showing which saw them kick off 2020 in fine style.

Here we bring a selection of the best responses on social media to the win.

@DRFC_ITEN: Oxford probably the best team we've played this season. They leave DN4 with nothing. Anderson and Wright especially deserve a big pat on the back today for earning the win, because that was a tough, tough assignment for the defence.

@TGS_98: Tell you what, they’re the best three points we’ll get all season. They’re a fantastic side Oxford. What a bloody win!

@Matt_Walker96: Huge win. Unbelievable shift by everyone out there. Joe Wright and Tom Anderson, incredible.

@rivdegab: What a win for @drfc_official unbelievable defending from the lads to see that out

@daniel_nice7: Thought #oufc were excellent again but if you’re talking character, desire and guts, it was very much #drfc’s afternoon. Anderson, Wright and Sheaf were all outstanding. Valuable three points that came through pure hard work and organisation

@Orrie2014: Excellent win, sometimes just grit and determination are what's needed to get the points in a game, it's about picking and choosing which games to play and which ones to battle it out. Hats of to Oxford though a v good team in the making and likely to be there at end of season

@JohnLeslieCoyl1: Talk about a battling performance. It wasn't pretty and at times we hung on by our fingernails. But a win is a win. Happy 2020!

@Jake_laughton: A few excellent signings needed, a few players need shipping off ASAP, 3 games in hand over many teams. 2020 could be a good year for donny, January is HUGE

@KieranOMalley: Huge win that! 6 points from 9 over Christmas and New Year will take that! New signings in before Tuesday and kick on from that!

@MattyDavies98_: There has to be an argument for Max Watters starting against Shrewsbury on Tuesday now!

@NickVuckovic83: Tom Anderson and Joe Wright were fantastic today against a very good Oxford side. Great 3 points!

@Matt_Walker96: Not a surprise to see Sheaf getting stick again, people have made up their mind about him already. Played well today, gave the ball away too much still but defended brilliantly
