OXFORD United are certain to be backed by their biggest away turnout since 2017 this weekend.

The club have reported sales for the Emirates FA Cup fourth round tie at Newcastle United are now above 3,000.

A second batch of tickets has arrived from St James' Park to keep up with the demand.

It is the first time United's away turnout has hit that mark since the fifth round clash at Middlesbrough in February 2017, when 3,376 supporters made the trip to Teesside.

But with almost a week to go until the game, which is all ticket, is on course to beat that figure.

The biggest turnout this season was previously 2,850, at MK Dons last month.
