Chelsea incentive for Oxford United Youth
A GLAMOUR tie at home to Chelsea is on the cards if Oxford United’s fairytale FA Youth Cup run can continue tonight.
The U’s are enjoying their best run in the competition for a decade and host Cardiff City in the fourth round (7).
The winners will host Chelsea, finalists in three of the last four seasons, in the fifth round.
Chris Allen, United’s youth team coach, said: “It would be good if it happened. These are the things you look forward to, but I’m speaking ahead of myself – there’s still a game to go.”
United have already upset one Premier League side, winning 3-1 at Swansea City in the third round last month.
