Oxford United

  • United have won 11 home league games this season, a total they have only surpassed once in the Football League since moving to the Kassam Stadium in 2001 (14 in 2003/04).

Herald Series:

  • They are eight league games unbeaten – they have not gone nine league games without defeat since April-September 2013. The last time they did it in a single Football League season was September 2003-January 2004.
  • Josh Ruffels has scored stoppage-time goals in the last home and away meetings in this fixture.

Doncaster Rovers

  • Rovers cannot be guaranteed of their play-off place on Saturday, but would realistically secure it with a win at the U’s if Peterborough United lost at Walsall.

  • Only Luton’s James Collins (24) and Charlton’s Lyle Taylor (20) have scored more goals in League One this season than John Marquis.


Charles Breakspear (Surrey).

  • 41 games this season (12 red cards, 133 yellows).
  • He took charge of United’s 2-2 draw at Peterborough United in December.
