Last meeting

August 4, 2018: Barnsley 4, Oxford United 0


Oxford United

  • A point would take United out of the bottom four, but it is 17 league games since United had a draw at home. The run stretches back to last April and Oldham’s goalless stalemate – since then the record is W9 L8.
  • Cameron Brannagan is one booking away from a two-game suspension.
  • No side outside the top ten have won more home league games this season than United (7).
  • Tonight’s visitors have lost the same number of away games in League One this season as the U’s: Barnsley W7 D2 L5/Oxford W0 D9 L5.


  • Barnsley are League One’s form side, collecting 19 points from their last seven games.
  • They have been outside the top two since August, but a win tonight would take them back into the automatic promotion places if Luton Town avoid defeat at Portsmouth.
  • Daniel Stendel’s side have the division’s best defence (24 goals conceded) and the third best attack (49 goals scored).
  • This is the Tykes’ first visit to the Kassam Stadium. Tomorrow marks two decades since their last game at Oxford, when the U’s Dean Windass scored the only goal of the Division 1 clash.


Kevin Johnson (Somerset).

  • 29 games this season (3 red cards, 81 yellows).
  • He has taken charge of two U’s games this season, both in the Checkatrade Trophy (the 2-1 defeat to Northampton Town and the 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur U21s).
