PREVIEW Sheffield Wednesday v Oxford United

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game

1 October 2021

Oxford United head for Hillsborough on Saturday in Sky Bet League 1

TEAM NEWS
United's team selection will depend on a couple of former Wednesday players. Striker Sam Winnall is unlikely to feature after missing training this week through illness but defender Jordan Thorniley is available again after missing Tuesday's win over Accrington.

Luke McNally stepped into the side and did well and boss Karl Robinson has to decide whether to change a winning formula.

Gavin Whyte also missed Tuesday after a calf injury and is rated doubtful while Marcus McGuane could be involved on Tuesday night when the U's welcome Stevenage in the Papa John's Trophy.

See Karl Robinson and Matty Taylor previewing the game in iFollow right now where you can hear from Luke McNally and Sam Long in the Preview Show.

THE OPPOSITION
It’s the first league meeting between the two sides in 30 years and the sides are both on 15 points after ten games.

Boss Darren Moore has seen his side build a three-match unbeaten run but skipper Barry Bannan was a sub in their last game; the first time that Bannan had not started a league game in almost two years.

There are three very familiar figures in the Wednesday squad in Mide Shodipo, Marvin Johnson and Chey Dunkley, all of whom will be keen to impress against their former club.

Match Reports

REPORT Sheffield Wednesday 1 Oxford United 2

Henry goal gives the U's a dramatic win at Hillsborough. Full time report

2 October 2021

Oxford United picked up their first away win of the season in the most dramatic of fashions with a 2-1 win at Hillsborough this afternoon

In an entertaining encounter the U's were ahead early in the first half when Cameron Brannagan fired home but a Callum Paterson header levelled after the break before sub James Henry stabbed home at the end of a pulsating 90 minutes to give the U's all three points.

Given the circumstances it was a remarkable victory. Late to the ground after being stuck in traffic and with covid protocols ruling out Gavin Whyte, who tested positive, and Mark Sykes who had been in close contact, plus match winner Henry missing training in the build up due to a non-covid illness, they could have been excused for a slow start

Instead they started very brightly and were deservedly ahead on 12 minutes when the excellent Brannagan ran clear in the right channel and thumped the ball low and true between keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell and his near post.

First to the ball and fiercely committed, United pressed Wednesday back all over the pitch and Brannagan, Herbie Kane and Alex Gorrin had total control of the centre of the park for half an hour.

Nathan Holland and Sam Long went close to extending the lead and it wasn’t until the 25th minute that keeper Jack Stevens needed to make a save, tipping a rising effort from Barry Bannan over the bar to the delight of the away fans at that end of the ground.

The home side grew ominously into the game after that and former Owl Jordan Thorniley needed to make a good block just before the break as the home side grew in confidence.

The hard-working Taylor forced Peacock-Farrell into a terrific save in the first minute of the second half but Stevens matched that with a superb save to repel a Saido Barahino header soon after and the game became increasingly stretched as Wednesday chased an equaliser with captain Bannan driving them forward.

United are perhaps a little more streetwise than before and tried to take the sting out of the game when they could but with 20 minutes to go they were pegged back when Marvin Johnson whipped in a marvellous cross and Paterson powered his header past the helpless Stevens from six yards out.

United refiused to accept their fate. First sub Henry curled a free kick inches wide after 87 minutes via a deflection from the wall and then Long sent his header over the bar from the corner that followed.

Then three minutes into injury time sub Ryan Williams pushed a loose ball across and Henry poked it home for a famous win, despite Stevens still needing to push a Bannan effort on to the bar in injury time.

A terrific performance, an ovation from the adoring fans, a big win and United are on the up.
