League 2.

In just under 4 weeks the league 2 campaign kicks off again. The bookmakers are making interesting reading for the fans of Portsmouth, Oxford United and Luton Town. 

Oxford United start the 2015/2016 season at home to relegated Crawley Town whilst Portsmouth entertain Dagenham and Redbridge and Luton Town face a long journey to try and conquer Accrington Stanley. 

With one pre season game under there belts, Oxford United travel to Wiener Neustadt for a friendly game that takes place on Tuesday night. As Michael Appleton withdrew James Roberts on the half hour mark and replaced him with AJ George it makes for an interesting starting eleven as I thought against Didcot Town the youngsters were impressive especially Aidan Hawtin who started the first 45 minutes. 

My starting eleven vs Crawley Town would be: 


Baldock, Mullins, Wright, Skarz,

Macdonald, Sercombe, Collins, O Dowda, 

Roofe, Taylor. 

Bench: Crocombe, Rose, Long, Roberts, Hylton, Grant, Hoban. 

This season the bench is going to be interesting because going on the two teams that we put out against Didcot Town there’s a bit of depth. Friendliest in my opinion aren’t about results it’s about getting the players fit and sharp for the start of a long and demanding season. Supporting Oxford isn’t always easy, however the fans will get behind the team and support them through thick and thin.
