Pep Clotet took charge of his first match against his former boss Gary Monk.

Both sides played out an entertaining match in heat near 30c. A pre-planned heat break in each half with fans joining in by going to the bars at halftime as well.

Even though the match finished 0-0 there was certainly good football to been seen by both teams.

A crowd of around 800 fans watched on with both Middlesbrough and Oxford fans mixing in the stands.
