OLI Johnson is set to face Oxford United in the opening month of the npower League Two season after signing for York City.

The 24-year-old was not offered a new contract by the U’s when his short-term deal expired last month.

But the former Norwich City winger has been snapped up by the promoted Minstermen for next season.

He will have an early opportunity to prove a point to United, with Chris Wilder’s side visiting Bootham Crescent on Saturday, September 1.

Johnson made 17 appearances for United after joining in January, scoring three goals – one of which came in the home win over Swindon.
