OXFORD United have called on supporters to respect the guidelines and avoid gathering outside grounds in their play-off campaign.

Their semi-final against Portsmouth starts on July 3, before the return at the Kassam Stadium three days later.

Both games will be behind closed doors as a result of anti-coronavirus measures.

Strict measures are planned around both grounds to prevent any unauthorised people from getting close.

United fans can purchase a cardboard cut-out to be put in place at the Kassam, but the club urge everyone to steer clear of going to the ground in person.

A statement read: "Please help us make this end to the season a successful one and enjoy the game away from the stadium.

"Buy a cut-out to support the club, but please, 'when we play, stay away'."
