Our record against Oxford United could be better. A lot better in fact; winning just two of our first 15 meetings with them. And some of the defeats have been heavy. There was a 5-1 humiliation at home in 2015. Oh, and a 6-2 thrashing indoors in the Football League Trophy back in August 2017. But that one doesn’t really count.
There aren’t any pubs near the ground, which is a problem. You can try the bowling alley next door to the stadium, however.
Oxford United Travel Information – Distance: 70 miles
For the trip to Oxford, we’re going to take what should be the fastest route. Be aware, however, that a more direct route can be taken across country via Hemel Hempstead should you wish. This one will take you along the M25 and onto the M40; obviously it could be a traffic hotspot and something to watch for here.
At Junction 7 of the M40, come off and turn left for the A329. You’ll reach a roundabout after around 4.3 miles. Here, you want the second exit to stay on the A329. After going past the BP garage on your left, follow the road round to the right and onto the B480.
Just under four miles later, you’ll come to a succession of roundabouts. Go left and take the first exit at the first of these for Grenoble Road. Go over the next three roundabouts, staying on Grenoble Road. The Kassam Stadium is shortly after the third of these and on your right hand side.
The club’s own car park has capacity for 2,000 cars on a first-come-first-served basis at no charge. If a big crowd is anticipated, this car park can get full very quickly as you may expect. But there is an overflow at the rear of a nearby cinema.
Services to: LONDON PADDINGTON
Oxford station is four miles from the Kassam Stadium, so you’re not going to be walking this one. You can catch bus number 5 from the station to Knights Road, which is a five-minute walk from the ground. There are other routes available too – but it might just be easier for you to see what the Us say about them.
