Oxford United welcome Hartlepool United to the Kassam Stadium in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday
Sam Long steps up at right back after the departure of Chris Cadden while Jordan Archer stands by for the last game of his time with the U's. Simon Eastwood is back in training and should be available next week when the U's welcome second placed Rotherham United in Sky Bet League 1.
Cameron Brannagan should also be available for that game while Jamie Hanson is not far behind in his recovery from a hamstring injury.
Hartlepool are currently in 16th place in the National league and will be without Luke James and Luke Williams through injury while loanees Mark Shelton and Gary Liddle are cup-tied.
Prices have been reduced for this game to:
|Young Adult 18-21||£5|
All of this weekend's FA Cup games will kick off one minute late to allow fans a minute to reflect on Mental well-being. That minute will also allow us to pay our respects to the Oxford United fans and former players and manager who sadly passed away in 2019, including John Shuker. Supporters are also asked to join in a minute's applause in the 77th minute for John, the club's record appearance holder, whose family will be our guests on Saturday.
There are circa 2,000 free parking spaces at the stadium.
Buses to the ground are the
