Keane in for Jackson the only change .
Losing the threat in behind is a bigger loss than we think. But Keane is more clinical .

Jackson has hamstring injury, hopefully not bad.

Looking at the pitch you can just see how a goal is going to be conceded tonight : it’s bloody waterlogged !!

Nice that Keane scored at the weekend and that he came on for Jackson so there’s some continuity there.

I grew up in Oxford. Moved in 1980 from Ipswich where I set my life-time allegiance. There’s plenty of great places to drink in the city but unfortunately none near the stadium which is basically in an industrial wasteland round the back of the BMW/mini plant.

Kind of got a secondary thing for Oxford (along with Brighton my adopted home) but f**k ‘em tonight

Their pitch is a mix between turf and artificial grass so should hold up

It looks like it’s getting worse to me Thomas .... we need to get a goal this half with the wind at our backs !

I think they’re considering the state of the pitch now

I think they will abandon it before 90 mins you know !!


Decision to carry on . Can see it bad goal being conceded due to waterlogged midfield though . We nearly got caught 3 mins ago

Can’t see the game surviving tbh . It’s still raining isn’t it ?



You’d think Oxford would have more than one bloke with a bloody fork !!!

Surely an self-respecting Tractor Boy carries a pitch-fork in his smock. Get out there on the field and help out.

The worst of the weather has gone over and it will be lighter for next hour, but can't see them continuing after all this...

We’ve lost our rhythm since the break now. It’ll be a different game second half with the wind in Oxfords favour .

Difficult conditions for both sides but we haven’t taken advantage of the wind assisting us this half . It’ll be much tougher second half I fear .


Come on Town !!!

Well on top that half, surely we should have had a pen? Can anyone watching on TV confirm that? The Town fans here to a man thought it was ?

I thought there was contact. Arm around Norwood, but not convinced there was enough. Think it would have been a weak one - but seem them given.

I'm following the game on BBC sports App text. It came up Penalty Ipswich 9th minute then went to a Edwards header in the 9th minute

So that's all i know

It was..... but Norwood pushed him in the build up to eat the chance. Levelled out.

I would change it.

Norwood off. Sears on.
Huws off. Bishop on.
