Oxford United would like to thank the emergency services after events during today’s game against Wigan Athletic.
At half time in the game a fire in a plant room was discovered. This in turn caused some of the floodlights to fail, delaying the start of the second half. The fire was dealt with and the emergency services were quickly on the scene.
We thank them and will now launch an internal investigation, working with our landlords Firoka, to ascertain the cause of the fire and review all matchday procedures as required.
Tuesday’s Papa John’s Trophy semi-final at home to Tranmere Rovers will go ahead as scheduled.
