Oxford United’s under 18s look to make progress in the League Cup this weekend when they travel to AFC Wimbledon’s Under 18s.
Both teams are unbeaten in the league so far and the U’s face a good test against a strong Dons side who they met in the FA Youth Cup last season.
“That game was a really good one for us” Coach Chris Hackett told us.”We had a decent cup run but then we came up against a Wimbledon side who we don’t usually play and who had an intensity and energy that you need to get through in cup games sometimes.
“We looked back at that and can learn from it: cup games are the ones where you need the passion and the attitude as well as the technical and tactical things we know we will get in league games from our boys. Wimbledon are top of their league but we have the same record- won three drawn one so it’s a game we are really looking forward to.”
