Oxford United welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday with boss Karl Robinson hoping a bumper crowd can help his side get back to winning ways.

“Our crowds have been growing all the time” he said “and we have some big games coming up at home against teams around us so we certainly hope the crowd plays a big part and gets right behind us.

“Wednesday are a great club with amazing support themselves - members of my family were looking for tickets in their end not ours, which was a bit disappointing!

“But that’s the challenge of League 1 this season, playing clubs like Wednesday. We know they will be really competitive. I like their Manager, he’s one of the nice guys in football, and they have really good players who have known how to win games throughout their career.

“They will definitely be competing at the top end of the table; they have started to get results and they are going to be so aggressive in this transfer window, so it will be a real challenge for us on Saturday.

“We have lost a couple in a row but that’s part of most seasons. It’s important to stay positive in these moments and about having a collective desire to get over that.

"It doesn’t happen overnight but we believe in what we are doing and we know we are a good team. With the crowd behind us we will look to show that on Saturday.”

Be part of what should be a great game of football. Tickets are selling fast but you still have time. CLICK HERE to buy tickets or call 01865 337533 to book your seat.
