PREVIEW Oxford United v QPR

U's ready for first home pre-season game of 2019

19 July 2019

Oxford United kick off their home pre-season games when we welcome QPR to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday (3pm)

The U’s have two exciting games against West London Championship sides in quick succession, taking on QPR in a game that will always evoke memories of the 1986 Milk Cup final for Oxford fans before we welcome Fulham on Tuesday 23rd (7.45pm)

Jamie Mackie stands by for his first appearance of the summer but will be on the bench rather than starting, having eased his way back after a back problem. The former QPR forward is ikely to feature for half an hour but fellow front men Gavin Whyte and Rob Hall will sit the game out before resuming full training next week. James Henry suffered no reaction despite limping off at Woking last Saturday and is fit to play.

New boys Alex Gorrin and Tariqe Fosu make home debuts as do youngsters Sam Allardyce and Kevin Berkoe with youngsters Fabio Lopes, Nico Jones, Aaron McCreadie, Aaron Heap and Kyran Lofthouse all likely to be involved.

Prices have been reduced to just £12 for Saturday's games with big savings on tickets for all age group prices as well.

It’s a first chance to see Karl Robinson's new-look squad in home action before the season starts at Sunderland on August 3rd and tickets are on sale online from and by phone (01865 337533) and in person from the Ticket Office.

It's a first outing of the summer for the match programme as well, with a 16 page programme priced at just £2 and available all around the ground. Please note that there will be more copies of the programme available in the Club Shop before each game this season as we recognise that fans often prefer to pay by card these days, something we are currently reviewing within the concourses.
The new home kit is proving extremely popular with fans and United will be wearing it at home for the first time on Saturday. Stocks of some sizes are already starting to run low so don't miss out: visit the shop nice and early before the game to pick up your new shirt and show your colours.
iFollow is unable to bring commentary or video streams on our pre-season games this summer but there will be reaction from the key men after the game, plus you can follow all the action on Twitter at @OUFCOfficial and on this site with Match LIVE plus a match report right on the final whistle.
