📝 Match Preview: Oxford United (H)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday at the Park!

25 April 2024

Exeter City return to action for one last time in the 23/24 EFL League One season, to host Oxford United in a 12:30pm kick-off at SJP.

It's been quite a few weeks for Gary Caldwell's men, who come into the match nine unbeaten, and having smashed last season's points quota, currently sitting in 12th place with a game to go.

Saturday's fantastic late win over Northampton Town with ten-men, was City first win at Sixfields Stadium since 2013 and sparked incredible scenes to thank those fans that have travelled up and down the country with City.

Visitors Oxford come into the match siting just outside the final play-off place, level on points with Lincoln City and need a win and hope that Lincoln either draw or lose to Champions Portsmouth to take the last place.

City have eyes on finishing ten unbeaten and in the top half, so it's set up for a fantastic occasion at a SOLD OUT SJP!

Gary Caldwell's Thoughts

For the final time this season, manager Gary Caldwell has given his thoughts ahead of City match with Oxford United at SJP.

"It has been a season of progression for us," Gary said.

"Progression is never linear, it's always peaks and troughs. You look at our start to the season, then the difficulty in the middle, then a brilliant run since Boxing Day. What we have done all the way is improve and develop and that is what we have to continue."

Pain the Park RED!

Exeter City supporters are being encouraged to help us ‘Paint the Park Red’ on our final game of the season at home to Oxford United.

Following the success of a similar scheme two years ago, and retro shirt day on the last day of last season, we would love to see all three sides of SJP filled with red and white to mark the end of what has been another fantastic season for the Grecians.


Whether it’s this season’s home shirt, and old strip, or a scarf, there would be no better sight than a packed SJP displaying a sea of our proud colours as the players walk out the tunnel for the final time in 2023/24.
