📝 Match Preview: Oxford United (Leasing.com Trophy)

All you need to know ahead of Wednesday night's Leasing.com Trophy match

4 December 2019

Exeter City are in Leasing.com Trophy second round action on Wednesday night against Oxford United in a 7pm kick-off.

The Grecians have been in fine form in the Leasing.com Trophy, unbeaten and winning their Group after picking up wins against Cheltenham Town, Newport County and West Ham United.

City made the last-32 last season before falling to Peterborough United at home and will be looking to better that this season.

Ahead of the match, City wing-back Jack Sparkes said: "We are really looking forward to it. It's another competition we are involved in and it means more game time for players and another chance for players to prove why they should be playing more regularly."

LAST TIME WE MET

Oxford United 4 Exeter City 2 | August 30, 2016 | EFL Trophy

City last met Oxford United in the same tourament back in 2016. The Grecian youngsters performed well in their opening group game, but ended up falling to a 4-2 defeat to Oxford United at the Kassam stadium.

Goals from Tyler Roberts, Chris Maguire, Ryan Taylor and Alex MacDonald made the difference against the injury-hit Grecians who at times looked dangerous against the League One outfit.
