Talking point

Aside from the ongoing drama surrounding boss Paul Lambert's future, amid fan protests and calls for his head, this game represents another chance for Town to improve their abysmal record against League One's top sides.

They've lost all nine of their games against the league's top seven sides so far this season and, though Oxford sit in eighth spot, getting a result - or even a point - against the red-hot U's would be progress.

Referee and officials

The match will be refereed by Marc Edwards, who's taken charge of 20 League One, League Two, FA Cup, EFL Cup and EFL Trophy games this season, handing out 72 yellow cards but no reds.

This will be his first Town match of the season. His assistants will be Darren Blunden and Garry Maskell, while the fourth official will be Carl Brook.

League positions

Town moved up to 11th in the table after their miserable 0-0 draw with Northampton on Tuesday night.

A win could move them up to ninth, level on points with Oxford but likely below them on goal difference.

A defeat could see them drop as low as 14th, which would be their lowest position of the season and for many years.

Oxford, who are eighth, could move into sixth with a win, or drop to tenth with a loss.
