PREVIEW Oxford United v Rochdale

A full guide to Saturday's big game

27 April 2018

Oxford United need one more point when they welcome Rochdale to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday in Sky Bet league 1.

Karl Robinson's side have 53 points and a draw would leave them mathematically assured of League 1 football again next season.


United have the luxury of an empty treatment room this week with everyone fit and available including long term absentee Rob Hall who made a cameo return to the side as a sub at Doncaster last Saturday.

Hall is likely to be on the bench while Curtis Nelson could make a home start for the first time after his achilles injury. 

See Karl and Todd Kane previewing the game, along with the Preview Show where we chat to John Mousinho all in iFollow right now.


Tickets are on sale online at 24/7 and from the ticket office in person and by phone (01865 337533).


The award winning matchday programme features the thoughts of Tiger and Karl and Curtis Nelson plus a great interview with Ryan Ledson. We also look back at the whole season On the Road and we have news and views from all areas of the club. There is also a chance to find out what our guest of honour Joe Cooke is up to these days.
