Under 18s Take On Preston

Youth Team head for Deepdale tonight

20 January 2020

Oxford United's under 18s travel to Preston North End tonight in the FA Youth Cup (7pm)

The game was originally scheduled for the Kassam Stadium last week but torrential rain meant a switch of venue to Deepdale and coach Leon Blackmore-Such believes the switch in venue changes the dymanic of tonight's game

"We can't wait and the lads are really looking forward to a game at a big ground like Deepdale, just like they were looking forward to playing at the Kassam. But it does change things. The emphasis is now probably a little bit more on Preston to impress on their own ground.

"But we are in good form and we have a big week coming up now because we play the semi-final of the League Cup against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday: that got switched as well because of tonight's game

"So we have a week to really look forward to and we go in to it in good form and in great spirits and ready to give it everything in both games."

United could include Slavi Spasov after injury but are without the ineligible Jack Stevens who is over the age limit for the competition.

Tickets are priced at £4 for adults and £2 for concessions, while season ticket holders of both club can gain free entry at Deepdale.

We will have coverage across Twitter and the Match Luve as well as a report right here on the final whistle.
