Mansfield's drive to secure a play-off place was put on hold as their match at Field Mill was called off at half-time due to high winds.
But manager Keith Curle believed his side could have won the game despite the conditions.
"Conditions were harsh and I thought we coped admirabley," said Curle.
"Oxford had the wind behind them but Kevin Pilkington didn't have a save to make."
Curle continued: "The referee had his reservations but I thought it was okay.
"But the referee made his decision and you have stand by that.
"I have to say that having failed to make the most of their advantage, I don't think Oxford would've wanted to carry on."
