Notts County

Oxford City



Early team news from Meadow Lane. Veteran striker Alan Smith only makes the County bench while Oxlade-Chamberlain starts for City (Alex's brother) !

Teams are in the tunnel ...

A quick FYI..My neighbour (who is at the game) is mates with the Oxford City gaffer Mark Jones and also Director of Football Justin Merritt who featured on the pre match coverage ..In other words I’m going to be very bias to the non league team ....But we all want a FA Cup giantkilling right ?

Away we go...Notts County in their back and white stripes while Oxford City go with a lurid dayglo green kit ..Apparently it’s the 1st time they’ve had their names on the back too !

Fairly even start for both teams although the home side looking dangerous on set pieces (5)

Fairly decent crowd in too..

Oxlade Chamberlain seems to be in the role of a bomb on right back although I noticed his Wikipedia page had him in central midfield for his parent club Portsmouth

First half chance for County as a Dickinson cross find the head of Brisley but it sails over (11)

Oxford City haven’t got their names on the back of their shirts after all.....Unless they are all called William Hill !

2 divisions and 66 places between them but the boys from OxCity have acquitted themselves well so far (14)
