Blues will play Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday, 22 July (3pm)

The friendly is part of Harry Redknapp's First Team schedule in preparation for the 2017-18 season. 

Michael Appleton's side finished eighth in League One this campaign and were pushing for a Play-Off spot. 

In August, Oxford knocked Blues out of the EFL Cup in the First Round at St. Andrew's courtesy of a Liam Sercombe goal just as extra-time was coming to a close. 

Blues last visited Oxford in pre-season in 2013 when a goal by trialist Adam McGurk earned a 1-1 draw.
