PREVIEW Burton Albion v Oxford United

A full guide to Saturday's game at the Pirelli Stadium

1 February 2019

Oxford United head for Burton on Saturday,

WEATHER WATCH
Early reports suggest that the snow that has hit much of the country shouldn't affect the game. The pitch has been under covers in the build-up to the match and the forecast is hopeful. As ever, the situation can change and we are in touch with Burton to monitor what is happening. We will have news here should anything happen, as well as on twitter (@OUFCOfficial)

TEAM NEWS
New signing Jerome Sinclair will be involved for the first time after competeing his loan signing from Watford on Deadline Day. Fellow forward Jonte Smith joined the U's this morning but will have to be patient while the paperwork is completed - the former Lewes man could be involved for the first time when we welcome Sunderland next Saturday.

Marcus Browne has stepped up his training this week after a tight hamstring and could return to the squad while James Henry is well again after a bout of food poisoning before the draw with Barnsley on Tuesday night.

John Mousinho returns to the Brewers, where he was captain, for the first time since joining the U's.

See Karl Robinson and Jordan Graham previewing the game in iFollow right now.

THE OPPOSITION
Burton boss Nigel Clough is wary of the U's after their draw with Barnsley on Tuesday.

"They played extremely well for 65 or 70 minutes against one of the best teams in the League," Clough said."So I think they'll be buoyed by that. I think they had a weekend off last weekend, so they were fresh and ready for a game. 

"They will take some confidence coming here on Saturday. It's the same with Bradford. They got a late winner on Tuesday night, and they were probably buoyed by the confidence of getting a point here last week."

U's pick up a point at the Pirelli Stadium

2 February 2019

Oxford United picked up a point at the Pirelli Stadium with a 0-0 draw against ten man Burton. The U's dominated the whole 90 minutes but just could not find a finishing touch despite creating a host of chances.

United had started very strongly even before the home side went down to ten. James Henry, obviously, had the first shot of the afternoon with a curling effort after 35 seconds that Bradley Collins tipped away at full stretch and Josh Ruffels followed that with a good effort after eight minutes that was unfortunately too close to the keeper to cause real problems.

Jerome Sinclair, on his debut, showed pace and was always looking to get in behind the defence, and that led directly to United playing against ten men for 78 minutes. Cameron Brannagan clipped a ball forward which Sinclair chased, outpacing John Brayford who reached out an arm and pulled the on-loan Watford man over. A straight red followed and United now had to take advantage of the extra man.

They each did their best: Sinclair blazed over after a precise through ball from Henry in the 14th minute, Nelson couldn’t steer an 18th-minute corner on target when the ball came at him unexpectedly like an off-balance Gemma Collins*, his fellow centre-half Rob Dickie struck a left footer over the bar from similar range on 24 and Graham fired well over on 27 to make it five chances from five different players in 15 one-sided minutes. Henry made it six on 35 with another wayward effort and the ten-man Brewers had ridden their luck, but United hadn’t shown that little bit of composure to make the keeper work more often when chances came along.

Jamie Mackie was given 45 minutes to try and make the breakthrough, Mousinho making way and Henry dropping deeper to take up more of a playmaker role and United picked up where they left off, trying to break down a stubborn Burton backline that refused to yield despite Graham and Whyte constantly trying to get round the sides.

A deflected effort from Whyte sparked a spate of corners, Brannagan volleying a clearance wide from the second, Henry clipped over on 67 minutes, and other than a speculative chip from Liam Boyce on 72 minutes, Burton had few chances to get within striking range of Simon Eastwood's goal (Boyce kicking the keeper in the chest as they converged on a stray back pass doesn't count).

Henry made it 13 shots (it ended up at 22) for the U's (to two for the home side) when Collins spilled a low bouncing ball on 78 and the home keeper then made the best save of the afternoon to push Ruffels' flick from a Mackie shot round the post as we went into the final ten minutes. Henry dragged one wide, a corner was deflected just wide from a desperate defender's knee and United had done just about all they could to break down the Brewers. One last header from Nelson was clawed away by Collins but it just wasn't to be United's day.

A missed opportunity, no doubt, but another precious point on the board and now the U's move on to a mouth-watering home game against Sunderland where your support can help them build on a win over Portsmouth and a draw against Barnsley. See you there.
