OXFORD United will change their pre-match routine tomorrow in a bid to end their winless away run in Sky Bet League One.

The U’s are one of three teams, along with Fulham and Rotherham United, in the top seven tiers of English football yet to claim a league victory on the road.

Tomorrow’s trip to Burton Albion is their 15th attempt to get off the mark.

Josh Ruffels admits the record has left United scratching their heads, but knows it simply has to change.

He said: “We’ve been good at home and we’ve got to get that monkey off our back to finally get those three points away from home.

“That would really boost everyone’s confidence.

“We’ve had a lot of 2-2 draws, it’s been strange and I can’t put my finger on it.

“We have been amazing on the road in past years, there’s nothing I can really pinpoint.

“We just need to get that win any way we can.”

This is the first time the U’s have reached February without an away league victory since 1985/86, when they were in the top flight.

In an attempt to freshen things up, United will leave for the Pirelli Stadium tomorrow morning rather than today.

Head coach Karl Robinson said: “We are doing something slightly differently.

“Normally with these games you’d go overnight, but we’re going to do a long journey on the day.

“It keeps them in their own beds for an extra night.

“Sometimes you can do stupid little things that might just trigger something.

“We’ve tried to change the kit, the goalie kit.

“I have a set routine at home before I go to a home game and I didn’t do it for the Bristol Rovers and Southend game, so I’m going to do that myself before I leave.”
