Oxford United

  • United are one of only three teams in the top seven tiers of English football yet to have an away league win this season – Fulham and Rotherham United are the others.
  • This is the first time they have reached February without an away league win since the 1985/86 season, when they were in Division 1.
  • Kemar Roofe and George Baldock made their U’s debuts in the last meeting at the Pirelli Stadium, a 2-0 defeat in February 2015.
  • Cameron Brannagan is one booking away from a two-game suspension.


  • The Brewers have lost three of their last five games – but two of those were against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup semi-finals (10-0 defeat on aggregate).
  • This is only their third home league game of 2019. The others saw them lose to Gillingham and draw with Bradford City.
  •  Top scorer Liam Boyce is a Northern Ireland teammate of United winger Gavin Whyte.


Brett Huxtable (Devon).

  • 28 games this season (4 red cards, 98 yellows).
  • He was in charge of United’s 3-0 defeat at Plymouth Argyle on New Year’s Day.
