OXFORD United's run of games behind closed doors could be coming to an end.

Accrington Stanley, who host Karl Robinson's side on Saturday, have confirmed they have applied to be among the second batch of fixtures used for a pilot programme.

The club have contacted the English Football League (EFL) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to be considered.

Last weekend saw seven grounds across the EFL host games with attendances of 1,000.

Bloomfield Road was among them, with Blackpool boss Neil Critchley describing it as "quite emotional" to have supporters in the ground again.

Stanley have about 950 season ticket holders, who will be allowed entry if their application is successful. No allocation will be made for away fans.

Should it go ahead as planned, it would be the first time United had played in front of a crowd since the 3-2 win at Shrewsbury Town on March 7.
