THERE are no league tables for entertainment value, but in 2019 surely not many venues in the EFL surpass the Kassam Stadium.

It is only a little over 12 months since Karl Robinson declared Oxford United hated playing at home.

But ahead of Doncaster Rovers’ visit tomorrow, just two defeats in 20 games since the turn of the year have changed the mood.

And the 11 wins include some memorable moments against Portsmouth, Bradford City, Wycombe Wanderers and West Ham.

“It’s not bad, is it?,” said U’s head coach Karl Robinson.

“It’s promotion form if only we could have every game at home.

He added: “We’ve tried to make it more of a home.”

“What’s made a big difference is the pitch, it’s magnificent and allows us to move the ball in the way we want.

“When we speak about playing at home we are excited.

“I think the noise levels have increased.”

The volume is an interesting point, as despite the form average crowds are down seven per cent.

Half of Sky Bet League One have bigger gates so far than United’s 6,799.

The club have not had a sub-7,000 average for a season since 2014/15, but Robinson felt it was too early to make a judgement.

The biggest argument in favour of that statement is over the opposition so far – or rather, who have not visited.

The likes of Sunderland, Ipswich Town, Bolton Wanderers, Bristol Rovers and Wycombe are all to come, bringing with them big away support.

Robinson said: “We certainly have entertainment value.

“But I think if you look at the back end of last season we played a lot of the bigger teams at home in that period.

“I think you tend to find every club has an increase towards the back end of the season through selling half season tickets and if you’re trying to go up, or stay up. That creates an upturn.

“It’s not something we’re worried about, we just want to perform for those who are there.”

United’s home form got them out of relegation trouble last term and this season has helped put them into the top ten.

Hopes are rising they can mount a play-off challenge, but Doncaster and next week’s trip to Rotherham United will provide a much better idea of whether Robinson’s men are the real deal.

The head coach said: “In the next two games we’ll be tested more than ever.

“One team was in the play-offs last year and will have hopes of going one better this year and the other has just been relegated from the Championship.

“But I think if you were speaking to Donny or Rotherham I’m sure their managers would be saying that they have got a difficult game.

“I spoke to one of them the other day and they said they had a really hard batch of games coming up, including us.”
