Ready For Action

U's get the all clear and get set for play-off action

2 July 2020

Oxford United will be at full strength for the play-offs after the latest covid-19 tests all came back negative.

That means that all players and staff are clear to report for a final training session today before they head for the south coast and the first leg at Portsmouth tomorrow.

The U’s are waiting to see if Rob Hall is eligible after returning from his loan but Marcus Browne, Liam Kelly, Matty Taylor and Ben Woodburn are all available after their loans were extended.

Youngsters Kyran Lofthouse, Jack Stevens and Fabio Sole have all been involved in training over the last few weeks and with extra spaces available on the bench could be involved while Rob Atkinson has been very impressive in the warm up games and is also likely to feature.

Karl Robinson told us:

“It has been a huge effort from everyone and we have all had to adjust and make sacrifices to ensure that we can be involved. We have been totally professional in everything we have done, as we always are, and I want to thank the players and the medical, sports science and nutrition team because they have been first class.

“We have been very detailed in our planning and now we are ready for the games themselves”

We’ll have a final pre-match video from Karl with his thoughts on the game across all our channels later today.
