PREVIEW | Blue Light Day

Oxford United welcome Cheltenham Town to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday in Sky Bet League One for the club’s dedicated Blue Light Day as we show our appreciation and support for our public services.

On the day, we’ll be welcoming The Army, The Royal Air Force, The Navy, Thames Valley Police, South Central Ambulance, Oxford Fire and Rescue, Oxford University Hospitals, and Nuffield Health to engage with supporters ahead of kick-off.  

There will be lots of activity going on around the ground that will showcase vehicles, equipment, and personnel from various departments of public service.  

Sam Long has been back in training this week and will be in contention for the squad on Saturday, following a short illness last week. Tyler Goodrham is a doubt for the game against Cheltenham, but Des Buckingham hopes to welcome him back next week.

See the full interview with Des and a catch up with Owen Dale about how he’s settled into life at Oxford United, on iFollow right now.

Cheltenham Town currently sit 21st in the League One table, without a win in four games. Two late goals from Charlton Athletic on Tuesday evening broke the hearts of the Robins as they suffered a 3-1 defeat at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium.

Former U’s Striker Matty Taylor is a doubt for the clash in OX4, as he was forced off with an injury in the 76th minute on Tuesday evening.

The Blue Light Day activation will be taking over the immediate West End Car Park closest to the fence. With a reduced number of free car parking spaces available at the stadium, we ask supporters to consider car sharing, using public transport, or cycling to the stadium where possible.

We ask all supporters to arrive early and park legally.

The gate behind the Planet IT North Stand will be open so pedestrians can move from one end of the ground to the other behind that stand.

The game is available to listen to in the UK and watch overseas on iFollow. CLICK HERE FOR A MATCH PASS
