Michael Appleton’s League Two high-flyers will be looking forward to their clash against Premier League Swansea.

There may be 54 places between these two sides, but Oxford will certainly fancy their chances of turning over their Welsh visitors on Sunday.

The hosts are currently third in League Two and look set to be heavily involved in the race to promotion to League One come the end of the season.

The U’s also boast an impressive home record at the Kassam Stadium – they have lost just one of their last 20 matches in all competitions there.

Meanwhile, the current campaign has been more of a struggle for Swansea, who lie just one point and two places above the Premier League relegation zone.

Survival will certainly be the main focus for the Swans, and they could see the FA Cup as an unwanted distraction moving forward, although it could also provide a much-needed boost to their disappointing top-flight form.
