OXFORD United’s players have decided against visiting Wembley this weekend ahead of their Sky Bet League One play-off final.

Touring the stadium is often part of a team’s build-up, giving squads a chance to familiarise themselves with their surroundings ahead of matchday.

But after giving United’s players the choice, boss Karl Robinson revealed the first time they will be in the stadium will be Monday afternoon ahead of the 7.30 kick-off.

He said: “They felt if they were going to use pictures of themselves at Wembley they don’t want them without being victorious.

“They felt the best time to use your phone was at the end. If you don’t get that chance then you don’t deserve it.

“I’ve seen teams that have done and haven’t done it.

“Let’s be totally honest, there’s no right or wrong way in this.

“We wouldn’t go to St James’ Park the night before a game. We didn’t do that in any of the other big games and the players turned up.

“A lot of my players have played at Wembley already, or been in squads.”

He added: “I don’t know if Wycombe are going.

“If they do they might think we’re being arrogant by not going, but it’s certainly not the case.

“I just know we feel when we turn up on Monday we’ll be ready and that’s the most important thing.”

United were flexible with the arrangements on the eve of their semi-final first leg at Portsmouth a week ago.

Players were given the option to stay at home or use a team hotel ahead of the game at Fratton Park.

But this time the squad and staff will be together on Sunday night to start the final preparations for the clash against the Chairboys.

Robinson said: “We will stay in a hotel as normal and get ourselves ready for the game.

“There are one or two things we’ll show them on the night before to iron out on the video footage.

“Other than that we’ll have a nice lie-in and a nice stroll, then get ourselves to Wembley and enjoy the experience.”
