Young U's Travel to Portsmouth

Oxford United U18s face Portsmouth in the Merit League

31 March 2023

Oxford United U18s travel to Portsmouth U18s in the Merit League tomorrow, Saturday the 1st of April.

Following an excellent performance from a young United side away at Cambridge last weekend, the U18s will look to make it 10 points from four games in the Merit League tomorrow.

The U's currently sit second in the Merit League with two wins and a draw, whilst Portsmouth are in fifth on the same amount of points having played two more games.

A win could send United top, depending on Luton's result, but United know the danger Portsmouth having lost away there in January.

Coach Chris Hackett told us

"We were really impressed with how the young boys came in and applied themselves last week against a good Cambridge side. Socially and physically they adapted to the challenge and we hope we'll see more of that this week.

"Portsmouth are a good side and we gave away some sloppy goals last time there so we know we'll need to defend well and focus throughout the game."
