PREVIEW: OXFORD UNITED (H)

1 January 2021

THE Brewers return to action on Saturday, January 2 as we take on Oxford United at the Pirelli Stadium, behind-closed-doors (3pm kick-off).

Chris Beardsley and Nick Fenton will be taking charge of the first-team for tomorrow's Sky Bet League One game.

HEAD 2 HEAD

The Brewers have faced the Us on 14 occasions in the Football League - going back to 2010 and our first fixture against Oxford, which finished in a 0-0 draw in League Two in August of that year.

Albion would defeat United 1-0 the following November in the FA Cup, but Oxford would get their revenge with a 3-0 league win at the Kassam Stadium in March 2011.

Last season, Albion came back from 2-1 down to win 4-2 at the Kassam Stadium in August 2019 before a 2-2 draw at the Pirelli Stadium the following March.

In total, since Albion's promotion to the Football League in 2009, the Brewers have won six games, six have been drawn and Oxford have won three.

Both sides met in non-league prior to that - Albion famously hosting Oxford on the penultimate day of the 2008/09 promotion-winning season at a sold-out Pirelli Stadium.
