OXFORD United have an increase in mileage for their Sky Bet League One campaign next season.

The relegation of Wigan Athletic, Hull City and Charlton Athletic completes the line-up for the third tier.

It is complicated slightly by Wigan’s appeal against a points deduction, but as things stand the U’s will rack up 6,124 miles next term.

That is an increase of 266 from the planned 2019/20 campaign – although that was after Bury’s expulsion.

The 520-mile round trip to Sunderland is again by far the longest journey facing Karl Robinson’s men.

Swindon Town have replaced Wycombe Wanderers as the shortest away day, at 68 miles.

Supporters will be hoping the derby dates are not in the opening few games when the fixtures are announced.

Coronavirus restrictions are expected to prevent crowds from attending matches until October.
