PREVIEW Oxford United v Bolton Wanderers

A full guide to tonight's Sky Bet League 1 game at the Kassam Stadium

28 November 2023

Oxford United welcome league leaders Bolton Wanderers to the Kassam Stadium this evening (7.45pm)

New boss Des Buckingham takes charge at home for the first time as the U's look to bounce back after defeat at Cheltenham on Saturday.

United welcome back skipper Elliott Moore after a one game suspension but lose Ruben Rodrigues to a similar punishment after his red card on Saturday.

Greg Leigh will be out for a number of weeks with a calf injury he picked up when on international duty with Jamaica but Ipswich loanee Kyle Edwards made his return after injury on Saturday while Marcus Browne is not far away from a return now.

See the full interviews with Des and Billy Bodin in iFollow right now.

Bolton Boss Ian Evatt knows that his side are now there to be shot at after a 7-0 win over Exeter on Saturday sent them top of the table.

“Almost a new bar was set on Saturday with our performance,” he said. “Some of our play was as good as I've seen it but now we've set almost a new benchmark and we have to replicate that type of performance as many times as we possibly can. The target on our back has become bigger, even though we already had one, and we have to rise to that challenge and make sure we're ready for it."

“It’s exciting for us to be challenging ourselves against the best teams in the league. Oxford are a really good team, who have some great players and are aesthetically pleasing on the eye who I have enjoyed watching.

“This is going to be a really challenging game, a difficult game and a different type of game to the one we've just played. We’re ready for it, we're looking forward to it, but we know it's going to be a challenge.”

REPORT Oxford United 0 Bolton Wanderers 0

U's draw with the leaders. Full time report

28 November 2023

Sponsored by

Oxford United picked up a point with a 0-0 draw at home to Bolton Wanderers this evening at the Kassam Stadium.

In a decent game between two of the promotion-chasing sides, United had the better chances before the break but then had to show the other side of their game, defending resolutely as Wanderers, top at kick-off, took the game to them.

The game took a while to warm up on a feeezing night, and the opening half hour was particularly cagey as the sides probed for an opening rather than starting with all-out assault.

With Ruben Rodrigues suspended, Billy Bodin was moved to a more central role and Kyle Edwards returned on the left of the attack. United stepped things up as the half wore on, improving by the minute after a disappointing performance at Cheltenham in their previous outing.

The return of Elliott Moore helped with that, and two well-drilled defences dominated the early minutes with neither keeper having to make a save before United began to get on top and carved out three good chances.

On 38 minutes Mark Harris slipped Stan Mills clear in the right channel with keeper Nathan Baxter racing towards him. Mills shot low but Baxter beat it away. Moments later Cameron Brannagan sent in a swirling cross that clipped the top of the bar with Baxter beaten.

The best of the three efforts came in injury time when Brannagan caught everyone napping other than the frantically back-pedalling Baxter, who just about managed to tip a wicked free kick up and over as it dipped towards the top corner.

Bolton hadn’t mustered a shot on target and United’s remarkable record in front of the East Stand remains intact - no side has scored against them there this season.

Surely the leaders, fresh from scoring seven against Exeter at the weekend, would lift themselves after the break?

Indeed they did. United created two more early opportunities, with Bodin hitting a defender with the first and scuffing the second, but then Wanderers woke up. The lively Dion Charles forced James Beadle into his first save of the night after 58 minutes and the visitors started to apply pressure for the first time. Beadle did well to block a Jack Iredale effort on 64 and the left back then set up two more chances at the back post only for his teammates to miscue badly.

There were brave blocks and half chances as United defended for their lives and searched for a way to get the game out of their own half. Sub Josh Murphy helped with that, his pace stretching the tiring Trotters, and eventually the two sides had punched themselves out.

Honours even and a first point for Des Buckingham as United's Head Coach, earned the hard way.

United now switch their attention to the FA Cup when they welcome Grimsby Town on Saturday.
