PREVIEW Oxford United v Blackpool

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game at Grenoble Road

5 January 2018

Oxford United look to make it back to back wins when they welcome Blackpool on Saturday.

TEAM NEWS

United will have to adjust due to left back Ricardinho's suspension. The Brazilian defender's late challenge against the MK Dons means he now misses three games, staring on Saturday. Dwight Tiendalli is likely to come back into the side as his replacement.

New signing Rob Dickie trained this morning but may have to be patient after an improved defensive performance from the U's on Monday - the former Reading centre-half is also ineligible for Tuesday night's Checkatrade Trophy game at Charlton as he played for Lincoln earlier in the competition.

See Pep Clotet's thoughts full plus interviews with Ryan Ledson and Rob Dickie in iFollow.

GETTING HERE

The new car parking rules are in place once again:

  • East Stand car park - this will open to supporters at midday
  • A car park steward will count vehicles in and the car park will be closed when it is full.
  • Another car park steward will direct drivers to a bay to ensure spaces are filled up systematically; drivers are no longer allowed to park outside of the marked bays.
  • A tweet will go out from @OUFCOfficial to update supporters when the car park is full to allow them to make alternative arrangements.

Additional parking is available on Grenoble Road and in Sandford on Thames.
