Torquay have managed 1 point from a maximum of 24 and will be desperate to stop the rot before it’s too late. Oxford make the long trip down to Plainmoor for this League 2 clash.
The Gulls haven’t won in 9 games since 28th January and lie just 2 points ahead of bottom club AFC Wimbledon. They will need to register a positive result and fast, to gain some confidence or the Blue Square Premier beckons. They certainly have more at stake than their opponents and will need home fans to rally round them.
Oxford were hammered in their last match, a result that sums them up as something of soft touches this year. Some good attacking play is undermined by sloppy defending. Only bottom of the league Wimbledon have conceded more goals this season than the U’s. To their credit they have won 4 of their last 6 away games and it’s been at the Kassam where they have struggled most this season.
