PREVIEW Oxford United v Hull City

Portugal tour ends against the Tigers

14 July 2017

Oxford United end their Portuguese tour with a game against Hull City on Saturday evening.

The U’s played well in a 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough on Wednesday night and now turn their attention to another side to have dropped down into the Championship from the Premier League.

Boss Pep Clotet will rotate the squad and those players that played 30 minutes on Wednesday are expected to play 60 this time, and vice versa. New arrival James Henry has impressed in training and may be on the bench but fellow new boy Dwight Tiendalli is unlikely to be involved. The Dutch full back worked very hard in this morning's session but is playing catch up at this stage of pre-season.

Wes Thomas wasn't risked against Boro but is fit and available and will be involved.

If you are in the UK 
Although the Boro came was streamed live back to the UK,  Saturday's game will not be since Hull City are not part of the rights agreement. 

You can though hear the whole game live on the BBC Oxford website

iFollow will have video interviews after the game and we will be tweeting throughout at @OUFCOfficial

If you are in Portugal

The game is at the same ground as the other night: the Ferreiras Stadium, Albufeira kick off 6.30pm. 

Admission is 10 euros and the gates open at 5pm

There are bars and restaurants around the ground as well as car parking in the streets nearby. 

The main stand has around 600 seats, which should be in the shade come kick off time, while there is standing around the rest of the ground. There is a large bar just inside the entrance to the ground.

Don’t rush off after the game: Pep Clotet and the players will come back out and we will take a team and fans photo in the main stand to mark what has been a fantastic tour for all concerned.

We will have a full report and action gallery right here at the final whistle.
