Match preview for Oxford United U18 v Bristol Rovers U18

Youth team kick off a double Rovers day

9 February 2021

Oxford United's under 18s kick off a day that will see the U's take on Bristol Rovers at under 18 and then senior level.

The under 18s welcome Rovers to Court Place Farm at 1pm ahead of the First Team's trip to the Memorial Stadium this evening.

It's the second meeting between the teams in quick succession after a 1-1 draw at Bristol on Saturday morning.

Gatlin O'Donkor scored his third penalty in three games in that match and is one of several under 16s being given a chance to step up to the under 18s at the moment: George Franklin, Ibby Sankoh and Enrique Tiamuna have also been featuring alongside second years such as Tyler Goodrham, Sam Johnson, Kie Plumley and captain Jack Gardner.

The U's are still chasing leaders AFC Bournemouth in the South West Division of the EFL Youth Alliance with five games left of the season.
