PREVIEW Oxford United v Reading

A full guide to Saturday's game at the Kassam Stadium

2 February 2024

Sponsored by

Oxford United welcome Reading to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday in Sky Bet League 1 (12.30pm)

​The U's have had a busy week with a draw against leaders Portsmouth and then new faces arriving on Deadline Day. They now welcome Reading to the Kassam Stadium for the first time in the league.

New faces Owen Dale and Jay Matete go straight into the squad after arriving from Blackpool and Sunderland on Deadline Day. The pair are match fit and will be hoping for a first opportunity but may have to be patient after Tuesday night's performance.

Jamie Cumming and Fin Stevens are doubts after going off against Portsmouth. Simon Eastwood stands by if Chelsea loanee Cumming is unavailable while the versatile Oisin Smyth did a good job in place of Stevens on Tuesday.

Sam Long, Will Goodwin, Billy Bodin and Josh Murphy are all close to a return but may have to wait for the trip to Blackpool next Saturday.

See the full interviews with Des, Tyler Goodrham and both new signings in iFollow right now.

The Transfer Window saw six departures and one new face at the Royals.

Tom Holmes joined Luton Town but then rejoined on loan for the remainder of the season while Taylan Harris also joined the Hatters. Nelson Abbey signed for Greek side Olympiacos. Left-back Nesta Guinness-Walker joined Stevenage on a loan deal, Tom McIntyre was sold to Portsmouth and forward Caylan Vickers also left the club after agreeing to join Premier League Brighton.

The one arrival was young defender Zane Monlouis on loan from Arsenal. The 20-year old centre-back is likely to be involved for the first time on Saturday

The stadium is signposted on all major approach roads to Oxford with the brown “attraction” signs and a football icon. For Satnavs, use postcode OX4 4XP. Away supporters should head for car park B1, opposite the VUE cinema (see below).

The stadium has unreserved spaces for around 2,000 cars at each game. Parking is free of charge and on a first come, first served basis. Away supporters should head for west car park B1 or B2. If these are full you will be directed to the overflow carpark which is past the VUE cinema and club shop.

Note that after most matches there is a security gate in place behind the North Stand, which prevents direct access from the away end to the East car parks

Parking Near the Ground
There is some road parking near the ground with spaces between the stadium and the Watlington Road roundabout. All supporters attending games are asked to respect the Residents Only schemes that operate in the nearby streets and not to park on the double yellow lines on approach roads. The lines do include the grass verges along the edge of the road as well and the club will not accept responsibility for any parking tickets issued to motorists who park there.


The nearest station is Oxford (OXF). If you arrive at Oxford Parkway (OXP) we suggest you take a connecting train to Oxford. Oxford Station is approximately five miles from the stadium.

Taxis will take around 15 minutes to get to the ground from the rank outside the station and will usually cost around £15-£20.

REPORT Oxford United 1 Reading 1

Honours even in the Thames Valley Derby. Full time report

3 February 2024

Sponsored by

The first ever league Thames Valley Derby at the Kassam Stadium ended honours even this afternoon as Oxford United and Reading fought out a 1-1 draw.

Leading through a Mark Harris goal in the first half, United were left frustrated when defender Ciaron Brown scored a second-half own goal to make it back-to-back home draws this week for the U's.

There was a fitting derby atmosphere and the expected passion on the pitch throughout, although it took 20 minutes for a shot from either side - Lewis Wing off target rather than testing the returning Simon Eastwood in the United goal.

However, the pace of Tyler Burey was creating openings down the right and after 33 minutes he clipped a good ball across which Brannagan tamed with a clever touch and then crossed from the left. Harris, unmarked two yards from an empty goal, tapped home his 12th of the season.


A goal up at the break, United seemingly had the Biscuitmen over a barrel and started to push them back, with the magnificent Brannagan once again leading the charge and setting the tempo for those around him. The temperature rose and challenges started to fly in, but the United backline was largely untroubled.

All that was needed was a second goal - two long-range efforts went wide, a McGuane effort from similar distance ballooned into the gloves of David Button and then with 13 minutes left Reading managed to grab an equaliser without actually having a shot on target all day. Sub Kelvin Ehibatiomhan charged down the left and crossed and Brown, stumbling, could only guide the ball into his own net to level at 1-1.

It was remarkably similar to the match at Reading earlier in the season - Brown having scored at the right end that night - with a derby-day intensity but the two sides ulitimately cancelling each other out.

Plenty of endeavour, cameos from Deadline Day arrivals Owen Dale and Jay Matete, but a sense of frustration not to have claimed the win.
