PREVIEW | U's take on Lincoln at home

Oxford United host Lincoln City tonight (7.45pm) in a massive game in the race for the Sky Bet League One Play-Off places.

As we face a vital stage in the season, we are calling on the Yellow Army to be All United. Take a look at the video below to see the power that the Yellow Army gave club legends James Constable, Josh Ruffels and Sam Long during previous promotion games.


Speaking on Monday Manager Des Buckingham said:

"We've got a way that we want to play and it's really starting to show through now especially when we’ve faced different tests over the last couple of weeks against different sides.

"We had two changes come in, but they fitted in seamlessly and what was pleasing was a clearer understanding to go to execute what we want. We must make sure again that we prepare ourselves correctly and we’ve done everything we need to in order to get ready for what will be a very tough test tomorrow night.

"I always talk about performance before I talk about result. I think the performances have been the most pleasing because we’ve got an identity about what we want to do. There'll be times where we don't have as much of the ball as we would like and there were moments like that on Saturday, but we defended extremely hard and extremely well.

"There are two regular season home games remaining and if we can pick up where we left off on Saturday we will be in a very good place. That’s everybody; fans, players, and everyone involved in the club.

"It was a wonderful experience for everybody. For me as head coach being here, that's the kind of club that I've come to know, and that's the kind of club that we are. To do that together is going to be so important, and we get the chance to do that tomorrow night."

The Imps currently sit in eighth place in Sky Bet League One, five points and two places below the U’s in the race for the play-off spots.

Since manager Michael Skubala took over in November, Lincoln have been a force to be reckoned with, as they went on a 16 game unbeaten run between January and April. They have had some disappointing results of late though, losing 2-1 to Wigan last weekend to end the streak.

The visitors were beaten by the U’s in the previous fixture this season, as Ciaron Brown and an own goal created by the industry of Stan Mills saw Oxford win 2-0 at a foggy LNER Stadium in October.
