Where can Reds supporters find matchday parking?

There are unreserved spaces for around 2,000 cars at each game at the Kassam Stadium. Parking is free of charge and on a first-come, first-served basis.

Head for west car park B1 or B2 upon arrival on Saturday. If these spaces are full, you will be directed to the overflow carpark which is past the VUE cinema and club shop.

Supporters must note that after most matches there is a security gate in place behind the North Stand which prevents direct access from the away end to the East car parks.

How far is the nearest railway station to the Kassam Stadium?

Oxford Station is the closest train station, situated five miles from the Kassam Stadium. If you arrive at Oxford Parkway, a connecting train to Oxford is advised to ensure a more efficient journey to the match.

The gaffer's thoughts

Michael Duff spoke to the press to preview the fixture - here is what he had to say ahead of the game:

"A tough one. They've got good players, I think they've been in the play-offs the last three years. They've got a really well built team, they've got a manager who's got a lot of games compared to his age. You look at the last home game, they beat Ipswich. They gave Arsenal a really good run for their money in the FA Cup, came out with a lot of credit from that although they got beat.

"They'll be wounded from the last couple of games. They're a dangerous opponent - a wounded animal with good players. They'll probably think they've still got a chance of the play-offs because of the squad they've got and they can put a run of results together. We know it's going to be a difficult game."

We look forward to seeing you in the away end at the Kassam Stadium cheering the Reds on loud and proud!
