Oxford United head for Swindon on Sunday looking to do the double over their local rivals and stretch their unbeaten record against the Robins to eight games. Here we have a full guide to the game.


United have Toni Martinez and Conor McAleny available and hoping for first starts after joining during the transfer window. Martinez scored on his debut as a sub against Newcastle in the FA Cup last week while McAleny trained with the U's today after joining on loan from Everton on Tuesday.

The pair come into the squad in place of Ryan Taylor and Alex MacDonald who have signed for Plymouth Argyle and Mansfield Town, while Joe Skarz and Charlie Raglan also return after missing the Checkatrade Trophy quarter final win over Bradford City in midweek.

Head Coach Michael Appleton told Yellow Player HD

"It has been a good week for us with wins in the FA Cup and Trophy but the league is the most important competition and we want a win for the fans as well on Sunday. They have been fantastic all season, home and away and I'm sure the atmosphere will be electric."

See Conor McAleny and Ryan Ledson plus Michael Appleton talking about the game in Yellow Player HD, where we will also have the whole game LIVE.


Sunday's game is a SELL OUT with none available on the day. Oxford fans without a ticket should not travel.

Parking at the County Ground costs £20 for coaches and £10 for cars.
