Chesterfield Preview

14 March 2014

We look ahead to Saturday's game as Oxford United take on the Sky Bet League 2 leaders

We look ahead to Oxford United's Sky Bet League 2 game at Chesterfield tomorrow.

TEAM NEWS
United will once again be without Dave Kitson as he recovers from a hamstring problem but are otherwise at full strength with Andy Whing, Jon Meades and Max Crocombe available again after long-term injuries. Crocombe is likely to return to the bench after Reading keeper Jon Henly's loan expired this week.

"Jon fitted in well and it was good to have cover for Ryan Clarke for the last two months" Mickey Lewis told Yellow Player. "Max is fit again now and will be on the bench and other than Kits everyone is fit. Chesterfield have been up at the top all season on merit but then so have we so we will go there and be positive and look to win the game."

See Mickey Lewis previewing the game in Yellow Player where we also have a great Preview Show featuring Andy Whing and Manor Legend Ken Skeen

THE OPPOSITION
League leaders Chesterfield added 17-year-old Derby striker Mason Bennett to their squad yesterday and Manager Paul Cook is likely to use him from the bench. Keeper Tommy Lee has a slight thigh strain but will continue, although Drew Talbot and Dan Gardner are both unlikely to feature through injury.
