THE PREVIEW Barnsley vs Oxford United

A full guide to the big kick-off

3 August 2018

Oxford United kick off their new Sky Bet League 1 campaign with a trip to Barnsley on Saturday (3pm)


United have eight new faces in the squad after a busy close season for Karl Robinson.

Cameron Norman, Tony McMahon, Luke Garbutt, Samir Carruthers, Marcus Browne, Gavin Whyte, Jamie Mackie and Sam Smith all trained as the squad moved north to St George's Park yesterday and will be hoping to be selected in the opening eleven.

United have come through pre-season without any injury worries and have the added boost of captain Curtis Nelson and winger Rob Hall returning from long-term injuries which kept them out of much of last season.

See Karl, Curtis, Simon Eastwood and Cameron Brannagan all previewing the game, along with the Preview Show all in iFollow right now.


United will be wearing their brilliant new blue away kit for the first time on Saturday. Available in all sizes, be part of the Yellow and Blue Army...

iFollow has the whole game live - hear it if you are in the UK, see it if abroad. You can sign up game by game or for the whole season, and we have full 90 minute reruns of every game.

Overseas fans- we will have full commentary from our friends at BBC Oxford synced to the live video stream for the very first time. A word of caution - although there has been plenty of testing this will be the first time this has happened across the entire EFL and syncing audio and video feeds is a massive task. A small army of technicians is on standby to make sure things go well but bear with us- sound and vision are not due to be paired until shortly before kick off.

@OUFCOfficial will be tweeting throughout the game and the match centre on this site gives you full stats and text commentary throughout the match. 

The official report goes live with a full gallery right here on the final whistle.
