GOAL! DID 0 #oufc 1 (Smalley 77) A breakthrough at last. Rigg gets in down the left and squares for Smalley to tap in. 2 in 2 for him now.— @OxfordMailOUFC 20 July 2012

DID 0 #oufc 0 Chances at both ends. Constable sees a shot tipped round the post, then Morgan Williams hits one from 25, straight at Brown.— @OxfordMailOUFC 20 July 2012

DID 0 #oufc 0 First effort comes on six minutes, with a Forster-Caskey curler just past the post.— @OxfordMailOUFC 20 July 2012
The two sets of players are out. #oufc won this game 6-0 last season, will we have another goal fest tonight? Stay tuned...— @OxfordMailOUFC 20 July 2012
Fairly decent crowd in so far, we've got five minutes to kick-off.
What's the collective noun for mascots? #oufc http://t.co/OBB6qPsE— @OxfordMailOUFC 20 July 2012
United had a great start to pre-season on Tuesday, when Deane Smalley's belter gave them a 1-0 win against West Ham.
There were also encouraging signs for Didcot, who came from 3-0 down to be edged out 3-2 by a Reading XI.

No team sheets yet but while you're waiting here's Oxford assistant manager Mickey Lewis thoughts pre-match:

Cox joins #oufc on loan from #stfc: http://t.co/98YOAmFI— @OxfordMailOUFC 20 July 2012
The first news of the night is Oxford United have a new signing - Lee Cox joins on loan until January from Swindon Town.
The 22-year-old plugs two key gaps in the squad caused by injuries - he is a midfielder who can also play at right back.
Good evening from Didcot Town, where the sun has come out as the two sets of players emerge for their warm-ups.
