PREVIEW Oxford United U18 v Forest Green Rovers U18

Young U's welcome FGR on Saturday

10 September 2021

Oxford United's under 18s look to continue their unbeaten start to the season when they welcome Forest Green Rovers on Saturday (11am)

The U's have made a promising start to the EFL Youth Alliance with a 3-1 win at Newport last week moving them up to fourth in the early table with a game in hand over the teams above them.

Striker Gatlin O'Donkor scored two in that game to underline his potential and coach Darren Purse told us:

"We are starting to get a little bit of consistency and you can see the first year scholars adjusting to full time coaching and what it means to be around the training ground every day.

"We've had a good week with no midweek game so we have been able to work on a few things and hopefully we can put in another positive performance on Saturday."
