OXFORD United can change positions in Sky Bet League One without even playing this weekend.

The U’s have a free Saturday after their home match against Fleetwood Town was postponed due to international call-ups.

Three other third-tier fixtures suffered the same fate, but eight games go ahead across Saturday and Sunday.

OPINION: Communication from the top important at crucial time for Oxford United

United start the weekend 19th in the table, but they will fall to 20th if Forest Green Rovers beat Exeter City in tomorrow’s early kick-off.

Meanwhile, Bristol Rovers’ clash with Accrington Stanley at the Memorial Stadium could force a reshuffle around the U’s, without their league position changing.

A home win would see the Gas leapfrog United, but it would also mean Stanley drop below Karl Robinson’s side as they would have an inferior goal difference.

The standout game of the weekend has been moved to Sunday, as third-placed Plymouth Argyle host league leaders Ipswich Town.

United are back in action next Saturday when they visit Charlton Athletic, who sit 14th ahead of their trip to Barnsley tomorrow.
