Last meeting

October 2, 2018: Oxford United 1, Luton Town 2


Oxford United

  • United cannot drop lower than their existing position of 12th, but can theoretically climb up to three places (although goal difference effectively means they could not finish above tenth).
  • They are nine league games unbeaten – they have not gone ten games without defeat since April-September 2013. The last time they did it in a single Football League season was September 2003-January 2004.
  • Curtis Nelson has played every minute of League One football so far this season (4,050 minutes).
