Baldock set for Kassam Stadium return

10 February 2017

George Baldock was once a fans favourite at the Kassam Stadium but the right-back will be visiting the ground tomorrow as an MK Dons player, eager to take all three points back to Stadium MK.

Baldock spent 11 months on loan with Oxford United, playing a crucial role in their promotion-winning campaign of 2015/16. His performances for the U’s that season also saw him named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year, despite only featuring for half of the year.

“I had a really good time there and it’s a club I’ll always keep an eye out for,” Baldock told MK Dons PlayerHD.

“It’ll be nice to see a few familiar faces but my sole focus is to go there and get a good result for MK Dons.”

“This will be a tough game, though.”

“That game against Peterborough was great. To score four goals away from home is always good and to keep a clean sheet of course is too.

The Dons too will fancy their chances and they go into this weekend’s match looking to build off their last away performance – the 4-0 thrashing over play-off hopefuls Peterborough United at the ABAX Stadium.

“They’ll fancy their chances because they are a very attacking team – I think it’ll  be an attack-minded game.”

“They’ve got a lot of technically-gifted players and they have good pace in wide areas so they will be constant threat

“It’ll be a really good encounter. Oxford have had a really good run and they’ll be buzzing after a good derby result.

The U’s have enjoyed a strong start to life back in third tier and they currently sit six points adrift of the play-off places in Sky Bet League One with a game in hand – Baldock is expecting a tough afternoon against his former side. Tickets for the clash with Oxford United can be bought at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday, cash only - tickets are priced at £21 adults, £15 seniors, £14 under-22s/students, £12 under-18s, £8 under-13s and £5 under-7s.
