Winter break is snow go for Oxford United
The squad have prepared for the game at Fleetwood Town tomorrow with sessions in the 3G dome at Oxford Academy.
It is the second week in a row the wintry weather has forced the U’s, whose game against Rotherham last weekend was postponed, have had to change their plans.
Some countries in mainland Europe have a break in the season to avoid disruption to the fixture lists at this time of year.
But while Lewis, United’s assistant manager, can see the benefits of such a plan, but doubts whether it could be successful in an English climate.
He said: “Sometimes you think it would be a good idea, but you can’t predict what the weather is going to be.
“You could have a winter break when the weather’s really good and on the first day back you could have weather like this.
“It’s too unpredictable really to manage.”
