A PLACE in the Sky Bet League One play-off final is on the line for Oxford United tonight.

After a 1-1 draw in the semi-final first leg against Portsmouth, the sides meet again to battle for a place at Wembley.

While coronavirus restrictions mean there will be no supporters at the game, the stakes are huge with a place in the Championship two wins away.

But where do you think it ranks in terms of most important games played at the Kassam Stadium?

Here are a few contenders:

May 7, 2016 v Wycombe Wanderers

A bit like today's game, the task was simple for Oxford United.

Beat Wycombe Wanderers and Michael Appleton's side would clinch automatic promotion from League Two, while dropped points would leave them needing a favour from elsewhere to avoid dropping into the play-offs.

Fortunately the tension dissolved in the second half, where a 3-0 victory was followed by a joyous pitch invasion.

An identical scenario to the present day, with United heading into a play-off second leg after drawing 1-1 away.

A place in the Conference final was the prize - and after four seasons in non-league the U's were desperate to get back on the coupon.

Just as with the Wycombe game the first half was goalless, but quickfire efforts from Matt Green (pictured) and James Constable set up a date with York City at Wembley.Herald Series:

Another Conference play-off second leg - and this time United had a lead in their back pocket as Jim Smith's men looked for an immediate return to the Football League.

Yemi Odubade doubled that advantage, but the Grecians hit back to level the tie on aggregate before winning the resulting penalty shoot-out.

May 6, 2006 v Leyton Orient

Unlike the other four games, this was about winning to stay up.

Having only dropped into the relegation zone a week earlier, the U's were two points adrift heading into the final day.

As it turned out, victory would have kept them up on goal difference, but Orient claimed a late 3-2 success which clinched automatic promotion and ended United's 44-year membership of the Football League.
