Oxford United vs. Southend United

Kassam Stadium

8th Jan 2013

19:45hrs

Oxford V Southend

The yellows play Paul Sturrocks Southend in the Johnstone Paint Trophy area semi-final. Its winner take all and progress to the area Final.

After tonight the winners will be just two stages away from a Wembley appearnce.

Justin Richards will be missing tonight as he is cup tied but Liam Davis could make a return on the bench. I'd expect Sean Rigg to return to the starting line up, but we could see Josh Parker make his first start up front.

Oxford United have reduced ticket prices for the match so its worth getting behind the U's
