10 July 2018

Oxford United kick off their second game in Ireland when they travel to Longford this evening.

Longford Town v Oxford United

Tuesday 10th July
Kick off 7.45pm

Team News

Karl Robinson will continue to rotate his squad to allow everyone to get game time, as he did during the 1-0 win over Portmarnock last night. Armani Little and Malachi Napa played a full 90 minutes in that game and so are unlikely to do the same again.

The one absentee tonight is last night's scorer Cameron Brannagan who has been hit by illness and will not travel with the team for this game. Rob Hall will again sit the game out but had a lengthy running session this morning and may play some part in the games towards the end of next week.

Coaches

The club and the Yellow Army have booked three coaches to take fans from Dublin to the game and back. THESE ARE SOLD OUT

The coaches will leave Merrion Square North at 3pm returning after the match

There is strictly no cash on the buses on the day and there are no further places available.

Alternative Transport
Iarnrod Eireann/Irish Rail and Bus Eireann provide regular train and bus services to Longford but do not serve the ground, See www.irishrail.ie and www.buseireann.ie

A taxi from Longford to the ground is about €12 for 4 passengers.

Unfortunately the last train for Dublin leaves at 7.30 pm and the last bus at 8.05 pm. The home club recommend the Longford Arms Hotel, www.longfordarms.ie if you are staying over

Programme

Meet the Players

Although we loved seeing everyone after Monday night's match Longford is a fair distance from Dublin so there may be limited time after the game, while for obvious reasons we don't anticipate too many fans hanging around for too long after Wednesday's friendly...

Pyro/Flares
Ireland is going through a heatwave at the moment and pyro and smoke bombs are strictly prohibited.

Coverage
There will be live commentary on all three games on BBC Oxford online. We are currently trying to bring that commentary to iFollow as well, subject to the facilities at matches.  This proved beyond all of our efforts on Monday and we fear may be a struggle again for the remaining two games.

There will be a match report right here on the final whistle each time and you can follow the game on twitter via @OUFCOfficial
