Pay on the day at Oxford United

29 March 2018

On Saturday, United drew 1-1 versus Rochdale at Glanford Park. They fell behind in the first-half, but an Ivan Toney header in the second drew the two sides level.

Meanwhile, Oxford were heavily beaten 3-0 at Portsmouth on Sunday in Karl Robinson’s first game in charge of the U’s.

TEAM NEWS…
Right-back Marnick Vermijl (hamstring) has taken part in training this week, as has striker Lee Novak (heel) and midfielder Luke Williams (scar tissue injury) as they step up their recoveries. The Good Friday game will come too soon though.

Jonathon Margetts (knee) is the only long-term absentee. 

ONE TO WATCH…
Midfielder Ryan Ledson attracted interest from a number of Championship clubs and is certainly a player to watch out for on Friday.

The 20-year-old joined Oxford in at the beginning of the 2016-17 season on a three-year contract from Everton, and has since played 71 times for the U’s, scoring four goals.

Ledson played just one game for the Premier League side, starting in their 1-0 loss against FC Krasnodar in the Europa League.
