PREVIEW Oxford United v Burton Albion

A full guide to tonight's game at the Kassam Stadium

20 August 2019

The U's take on the Brewers tonight as Karl Robinson's side look to continue their good start to the season

Team News
Matty Taylor joined the U's on loan from Bristol City yesterday and stands by to play a part after his registration was completed in time for him to be involved but fellow new signing George Thorne will have to be patient after his paperwork was completed later in the day. 

Tariqe Fosu could be in line for a return to the starting eleven after missing the game at Blackpool with a slight hamstring problem while Shandon Baptiste will play in a behind closed doors Under 23s friendly against AFC Bournemouth today as he continues his return from injury.

See Karl Robinson previewing the game in iFollow right now plus first interviews with Matt Taylor and George Thorne.

The Opposition
Nigel Clough's Brewers suffered a second straight 1-0 home defeat at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday losing to Rotherham United after a similar defeat against Ipswich the game before.

"We need to take it out on Oxford and Shrewsbury" Clough said on Saturday "We've got nothing, so we pick up the pieces and start again. Our four performances so far, with new players coming in and settling in, we've been encouraged by the performances.

"You get another setback, you start again. You regroup and it's Oxford on Tuesday night."

Match Day
The RES gate behind the North Stand will not be in operation for this game meaning fans can move from one end of the ground to the other behind that stand after the game. See the Match Pack block above for the best ways to make the most out of your day, including travel details and an away fans guide.

Phone Issues
Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control the telephone lines to the Kassam Stadium currently have a technical fault and we are advised that this could take up to 24 hours before they are repaired.

Online tickets are still available from oufctickets.co.uk  and cards can be taken at the ticket office tonight - manually or contactless - but we cannot currently sell tickets over the phone.

The Club Shop remains unaffected but the club offices, including the admin team and Commercial are unable to take calls to their usual club numbers.

We advise fans to arrive early to avoid any potential problems and we apologise for any inconvenience.

Football Specials
The OX2 service was a big success on its first trial run against Peterborough but is only currently in operation for Saturday games and therefore not available tonight. The OX3 and OX7 buses will run as usual. Cick HERE for details
