The Big Match Preview: Oxford v Wycombe

All you need to know ahead of the match his weekend

20 December 2019

Team news, tickets and more!

Oxford United v Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 21st December 2019 (kick off 3pm)
Kassam Stadium
Referee: Lee Swabey

Gareth Ainsworth's side are on the road again! It's been a while since our last away game, but it's time for our second trip to Oxford United this calendar year. With 1800 travelling supporters set to make the trip to the Kassam, there's plenty to be excited about heading into the New Year and with a fairly busy festive period, it's the first of four difficult matches.

Fresh from a week's break following last Saturday's victory over Burton Albion, the Chairboys head into the encounter seven points clear at the top of the table - and come up against an Oxford side in fine form so far this season.

Karl Robinson's men came up against Premier League champions Manchester City in the Carabao Cup in midweek. Despite losing 3-1, the home side gave a good account of themselves and welcomed the return of James Henry to the match day squad following his injury struggle this season.

The Chairboys are likely to come up against former players John Mousinho and Jordan Archer this weekend - with the latter signing last week as cover for the injured Simon Eastwood between the U's sticks.

There is a sizeable car park at the Kassam Stadium itself, with free parking in the areas for around 2,000 cars. If all those spaces have been taken by the time you arrive, then don’t be tempted to park on the grass verge as traffic wardens are particularly vigilant. Instead, there are some street parking options within walking distance.

Kassam Stadium Car Park OX4 4XP Free 0.1km
There is around 1,600 spaces at the stadium itself, but make sure you arrive a good 75-90 minutes before kick off to make sure you get parked. Also, be mindful that when parking here it can take slightly longer to get away after the game has finished.

Vue Cinema Car Park OX4 4XP Free 0.2km
If you aren’t able to get a space at the stadium, there are an additional 400 free car parking spaces at the adjacent Vue Cinema, which is less than a 5 minute walk from the stadium.

Grenoble Road (street parking) OX4 4XP Free 0.2km
If you miss out on the free parking at the stadium itself and the nearby cinema complex, there is street parking available on Grenoble Road itself, which is literally opposite the stadium. However, make sure you use the marked bays and cars are parked here at your own risk.
 
Oxford Station is around 4 miles away from the stadium, so walking isn’t a popular option amongst the vast majority of fans. The more popular options are to take a taxi which will cost between £10-£15, or take the bus. The Oxford Bus Company run the number 5 which goes into the City Centre, which then requires just a short walk to the stadium. Alternatively, there is also the 3A which runs directly to the stadium from the City Centre on Speedwell Street.
 
There are a number of away friendly pubs near the Kassam Stadium, all of which cater to different needs. Please note, however, that some bars require club colours to be covered and some do not allow children.
