We are at Rodney Parade this evening for our Carabao Cup Second Round Match vs Oxford United. Our League One opponents will be favourites to secure a place in the Third Round but County will be hopeful that another Cup upset at home might be possible.
Oxford United haven't had the greatest of starts to their 2018/19 Season but Cup Victory over fellow League One side Coventry City and a comprehensive win over Burton Albion at the weekend indicates that the tide is turning for Karl Robinson's "U's".
In this article, we preview "what's on" at Rodney Parade this evening....
Club Shop and Ticket Office
The Kingsway Club Shop opens at 9.30am and will remain open for all your merchandise and ticket requirements until 4.30pm.
