Oxford United’s pre-season goes up a notch this evening when they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Premier League side Crystal Palace.
United, fresh from wins over Woking, Banbury United and Oxford City at the Oxford Sports Park this weekend get a chance to test themselves against Roy Hodgson’s Eagles and Karl Robinson told us
“I’m looking forward to it. It’s going to be a very hard game for us, obviously, but you find out as much about your players in these type of games as you do in the three we have just played.”
Simon Eastwood landed awkwardly in the Banbury game and wasn’t risked against City 24 hours later but is expected to play the full 90 minutes tonight while James Henry and Mark Sykes are in contention after knocks and Jamie Hanson could feature for the first time on Saturday when the U’s are at home to QPR.
Kick off tonight is at 5.30pm and while the game is behind closed doors you can still watch it online as Palace are streaming the game for FREE on Palace TV.
iFollow is closed for maintenance right now but there are some great enhancements coming for the season ahead. Meanwhile we will have all the goals and reaction on to the Oxford United Official Channel on You Tube as soon as possible.
You can also follow the game with us on Twitter @OUFCOfficial and there will be a match report right here on the final whistle as well.
