Oxford United head for Millwall on Saturday looking to end their away season with a win against the promotion seeking Lions. Here we have a full guide to the game.

TEAM NEWS

The U's will be without striker Toni Martinez for the last two games of the season with the Spanish striker returning to West Ham for treatment on a knee injury. Head Coach Michael Appleton refused to close the door completely on a return for the forward at some stage in the future. Ryan Ledson is also ruled out with a similar knee problem while long term absentees Wes Thomas and Aaron Martin are making decent progress from Achilles problems and Josh Ashby is doing well after a knee ligament problem. All three are expected to return early next season.

Simon Eastwood has two games left to complete a 62 game ever-present season in goal, while Christian Ribeiro is back in contention after an impressive debut at Bradford on Good Friday: Monday's game at home to Port Vale was considered too soon after his first game of an injury affected season.

See Michael Appleton and Joe Rothwell in Yellow Player HD, where we will also have the whole game LIVE.

THE OPPOSITION
Millwall have an excellent home record, second only to champions Sheffield United this season, and there is sure to be an intimidating atmosphere for the U's as Neil Harris's side try and clinch a play-off place.

“The atmosphere at the game on Good Friday before kick-off and the first hour was phenomenal" Harris said. "The noise and the togetherness between the stands and the pitch was outstanding.

“It’s something we’ve had at times, but we’ve craved all year. Yes, the players have to put in a performance, be on the front foot and aggressive, but the fans have to drive it also.”
