Oxford United v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday's Sky Bet League One clash.

16 March 2018

Posh travel to the Kassam Stadium to face Oxford United this weekend.

Peterborough United go in search of their fourth successive Sky Bet League One victory on Saturday afternoon as Steve Evans’ men visit managerless Oxford United who have struggled for form in recent weeks following the departure of Pep Clotet.

It is highly likely that the new U’s boss could well be sitting in the stands at the weekend with a number of high profile managers linked with the job. Oxford were beaten rather unfortunately at AFC Wimbledon in their last encounter, while Posh secured three vital points on the road thanks to Jack Marriott’s last gasp goal at Gigg Lane against Bury on Tuesday evening.


Gwion Edwards and Alex Penny remain sidelined due to injury, although Edwards continued his rehabilitation on grass at the training ground on Friday working alongside Head of Physical Performance Ben Mackenzie.

In terms of Oxford team news, former Liverpool midfielder Cameron Brannagan impressed on his debut in the defeat to AFC Wimbledon and stands by for his first game at the Kassam Stadium while Isaac Buckley-Ricketts is available before joining up with the England under 20 side and Gino van Kessel will fly out to join up with Curacao after the game. Joe Rothwell, Robbie Hall and Curtis Nelson are again ruled out with long term injuries.


“I have a lot of respect for Derek Fazackerley and the coaches that are currently in charge at Oxford. I am sure they may well have their new manager sitting in the stands ahead of an appointment, but the game will be played on the grass, not in the stands. I watched Oxford’s game at AFC Wimbledon and they were unlucky to lose that game. Our lads are bouncing at the minute and that comes from winning. We will make changes and perhaps tweak the formation for the game.”


Over 400 tickets have been sold in advance of the game, but there is no price rise on the day and the game is not all-ticket. Full ticket details can be found here:


Defender Ryan Tafazolli made his 200th career appearance in the 1-0 win at Bury. He came on for the final few minutes at Gigg Lane to preserve the three points.

Posh suffered their first defeat under Steve Evans as Oxford United record a 2-1 victory.

Steve Evans suffered his first defeat as Peterborough United manager as a goal in each half secured all three points for managerless Oxford United on a wintry day at the Kassam Stadium.

Jack Marriott scored his 29th goal of the campaign but it was not enough and Jack Baldwin received a second yellow card late on to compound the Posh misery.

The home side got their noses in front inside the opening three minutes as a wind-assisted corner played havoc at the near post and Rob DICKIE bundled the ball over the line from close-range. James Henry cracked the post from 25-yards moments later as Oxford came close to doubling their lead.

Eastwood preserved the lead with a fine stop at the near post to deny Maddison on 32 minutes as Posh tried to get back into the game. Steve Evans made a change on 37 minutes with Omar Bogle replacing Anderson.

Maddison fired over from 35-yards on 42 minutes after a neat bit of skill to lift the ball over his man. One minute of added time was indicated before the referee brought an end to proceedings. Posh made a change at the break with Chris Forrester replacing Ward.

Oxford also made a change with Van Kessell replacing former Posh loanee Obika. Baldwin was cautioned by the referee for a body check on 50 minutes, the first caution of the game to date. Posh were forced into their final change on 53 minutes as Forrester limped out of the action, Danny Lloyd his replacement.

The home side doubled their lead on 61 minutes as a poor pass from Doughty was capitalised on and HENRY was given time to send a fierce drive through Bond who could only get a hand to the powerful effort.

Posh reduced the arrears moments later, Maddison with a low cross that was perfect for MARRIOTT to gobble up his 29th goal of the season from close-range. Ledson was cautioned for a foul on Doughty on 73 minutes.

Marriott was a whisker away from goal number 30 of the season on 75 minutes as he skipped past a few challenges, his low 25-yard shot was a whisker away from nestling in the bottom corner of the net.

Marriott then saw a left-foot volley from just inside the box go over the top after a raking pass from deep by Maddison. Van Kessell was denied by the legs of Bond on 80 minutes as Posh left themselves a bit exposed at the back as they tried to chase an equaliser.

Seven minutes of added time was indicated by the fourth official. Baldwin, for the second year in a row, was shown a second yellow card in stoppage time for a foul by the touchline and Posh ended proceedings with 10-men. Ricardinho fired wide of the far post deep into stoppage time before the referee brought an end to the first defeat under Steve Evans.

Oxford: Eastwood, Ledson, Thomas (sub Napa 68min), Brannigan, Dickie, Henry, Kane, Obika (sub Van Kessell 46min), Mowatt (sub Ricardinho 86min), Smith-Brown, Mousinho. Unused subs: Shearer, Martin, Ruffels, Buckley-Ricketts.
