TEAM NEWS
Chey Dunkley and Sam Long will continue in defence as Oxford United look to end their home season with a win. Dunkley came into the side for Johnny Mullins at Tranmere on Saturday and will continue to partner Jake Wright with Long continuing at right-back. A thigh injury means that George Baldock has returned to MK Dons for treatment and may have played his last game for the U's but Long drew special praise from Michael Appleton for his performance at Prenton Park and will hope to impress in the last two games.

Head Coach Appleton's biggest choice could come up front where Kemar Roofe switched to a central role last week and scored two excellent goals alongside Danny Hylton. With Patrick Hoban and Kyle Vassell now both fully fit after slight knocks and James Roberts a lively sub last weekend there seem to be plenty of attacking options.

See interviews with Jake Wright and Michael Collins plus a full Preview Show in Yellow Player, where we also have full commentary on the whole game.   

THE OPPOSITION
Cambridge boss Richard Money is hoping that with neither side involved in the relegation battle it could allow the players to relax a little and lead to an open game of football.

“It’s the type of game you probably want this Saturday” he told the Cambridge News.“We’ve had enough of the games against the teams that have been struggling as well as they’ve been difficult to play in, and this might be an opportunity for two good football teams to go and play."

“Oxford’ve been in and around it (the relegation zone) for most of the season, but Michael has been very clear they wouldn’t be in it at the end and they’re not. At this end of the season it looks as though he’s put a decent group together and they’re finishing strongly.
I think they’ll be a very strong candidate next year.”


BRADFORD REMEMBERED
