Parkway return to Oxfordshire as the FA Cup resumes
Following the first league win of the season on Tuesday night, Parkway return to cup action this weekend.
Goals from Ben Seymour, Mikey Williams and Jack Crago earned the Yellows their first collection of three points this season at home to Salisbury, giving Lee Hobbs’ men plenty of momentum as they try to make more history in the FA Cup.
Plymouth have seen off Didcot and North Leigh, both in dramatic five-goal thrillers, to get to the third qualifying round and, for the first time ever, a place in the fourth is at stake on Saturday.
A trip to Oxford is on the cards if they are to do so, and the Hoops themselves secured a win against Salisbury to get to this stage, having been seen off by Frome last year.
In their league exploits, Oxford are 11th in the National League South having taken 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats from their opening 10 games of the season.
Two of those have arrived at Marsh Lane, and they have scored 15 goals home and away in the process.
The fact that their impressive goal haul is the 10th highest in the league is a reminder of how competitive the division is, so Parkway are under no illusions that they are going up against an extremely respectable opponent
Parkway have never faced off against Oxford City before.
A roughly three-hour journey awaits for those travelling to Oxford on Saturday, heading up the M5 towards the A417 in Gloucestershire.
The A43 and the A40 will then take you over to Marsh Lane in Oxford for a crunch cup clash.

There is a 33 percent chance of rain on Saturday afternoon, and temperatures will be a mild 16 Degrees Celsius – winter is nearly upon us!
