Oxford United vs. Burton Albion

Kassam Stadium

29th Jan 2013

19:45hrs

Oxford V Burton

Chris Wilder and the traveling Oxford fans watched the U's at the weekend put in an uncharacteristic performance against Fleetwood which saw the side lose 3-0.

The yellows will be encouraged to get James Constable back and Lewis Montrose will have a fitness test to see if his hamstring is ok.

Lets hope Saturday was just a blip and we get back on track for our push up the table.

Standing in our way is Gary Rowett`s Burton who have an impressive home record but struggle away from home.
