Oxford United head for Fleetwood Town in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday (3pm)
United are boosted by the return of Kyle Joseph to the squad. The on-loan Swansea forward has been missing since the start of November but has trained all week and will travel with the squad as they head north today.
Simon Eastwood is set to return in goal and with James Henry and Sam Baldock back in training it just leaves Marcus Browne (hamstring) and Alex Gorrin (knee) in the treatment room as Karl Robinson told us:
Assistant Head Coach Steven Whittaker, who works alongside Head Coach Scott Brown, has seen his side score at least one goal in 15 consecutive games in all competitions but is aware that United are a real threat:
“Oxford are a good footballing team; they work a lot of attempts on goal and put quite a few crosses into the box, so they really are a team that we have to be wary of. We did well against them down at their place, we drew 1-1 and did well against the ball. At home, we are hoping to have a little bit more of the ball and stay on the front foot as we have done over the last couple of weeks.
“The league is a tight one, so we aren’t looking too far ahead, it’s all in the balance at the moment. We’re in a good spot and have a home game at the weekend in which we can hopefully go and take the points and then look forward to the two times we face Sheffield Wednesday later this month – we’ll keep assessing the games as they come.”
