OXFORD City play their first game for 22 days tonight.

David Oldfield’s side visit Billericay Town in Vanarama National League South, in a fixture that was pushed back 24 hours so they could complete their ten-day isolation period.

All players have stayed away from each other as a precautionary measure since Christmas, after some of the squad came into contact with a person who tested positive for coronavirus.

City have not played since their Buildbase FA Trophy victory at Welling United on December 15.

They were due to take on Truro City in the next round of the competition seven days later, but the fixture was postponed and then cancelled after an opposition squad member tested positive for the virus.

But City were themselves soon forced to isolate, which meant they had to call off a further three fixtures.

The Boxing Day home game against Slough Town and the return fixture in Berkshire on Saturday were postponed, as well as last Monday’s match at Hemel Hempstead Town.

City were ninth in National League South before last night’s games, four points outside the play-offs.

Billericay, meanwhile, are 17th and lost 1-0 at home to Essex rivals Concord Rangers on Saturday.
