MATCH PREVIEW: OXFORD UNITED

11 November 2019

Reds play their ninth cup tie of the season on Tuesday night when we take on League One Oxford United in the Leasing.com Trophy, kick off 7.45pm at The People's Pension Stadium.

FORM GUIDE

Reds returned to winning ways last Saturday, beating Scunthorpe United 4-1 in the FA Cup, our third win in the last eight in all competitions. Oxford are having a good season. Through to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, where they face holders Manchester City, they are fourth, having lost just once in their last ten in League One and progressed in the FA Cup on Sunday with a 2-0 win over Hayes & Yeading.  

MATCH TICKETS

Admission for adults is just £10, concessions £5 and under-11s go free if they are accompanied by an adult or concession paying full price. More details and ways to book can be found here 

WHAT'S AT STAKE

Having lost both games so far, Reds cannot progress to the knockout stages. Oxford are already through with Portsmouth so only pride - and £10k prize money - are at stake.

GABY'S VIEW

We can't qualify which is a shame but there is a lot of stake. Players who haven't been involved a lot need game time and minutes and we have one or two players who are stepping up their recovery after injury. I am not sure what strength our opponent will be but they are a good club with a strong squad and they are having a good season so it will be a competitive 90 minutes for sure. 

RECORD AGAINST OXFORD

It is more than four years since Oxford last visited West Sussex. The U’s were on their way to promotion from League Two and after Joe McNerney put us in front they hit back to win 5-1 in front of a crowd of 3,340.

The three other league meetings have seen a 4-1 win for us here eight years ago and two 1-1 draws at Oxford.  

HOW THEY BET

Sky Bet odds (over-18s only, please gamble responsibly): Crawley win 7/2, Oxford win 8/13, draw 14/5.
