OXFORD United's friendly with Birmingham City on Saturday has been called off.

The U's we're due to face the Blues in a behind-closed-doors game at the Sky Bet Championship club's training ground.

But as expected, the fixture has been cancelled following the three positive coronavirus tests in United's camp that have forced 12 first-team players to self-isolate.

Tonight's friendly at Banbury United will go ahead, with Karl Robinson in the opposite dugout to former U's midfielder Andy Whing.

The head coach said: "I owe Whingy the game, if it wasn't for him I don't think we'd play it.

"The Oxford fans know what he's done for the football club.

"We'll be putting a very young team out." 

United's depleted side beat Hayes & Yeading United 9-0 yesterday, while their next scheduled friendly after tonight is a double-header against Peterborough United on Tuesday.
