So tomorrow the new npower league two season begins for Oxford United. Our second season back in the football league and a chance to kick on from last season. Summer signings including the experienced Michael Duberry from St Johnstone and highly rated midfielder Peter Leven have given Oxford fans the belief that they can mount a push for promotion this season.
The season begins at the rather depressing venue that is the Don Valley Stadium, this souless athletics stadium is the temporary home for Rotherham United managed by former yellow Andy Scott and assisted by fellow former yellow Darren Patterson. Both the U's and Rotherham are highly fancied in the footballing world to make an impact towards the top of the League 2 table so this opening clash will provide an insight to the rest of the season.
