PREVIEW: Shrewsbury Town v Oxford United

20 March 2015

We look forward to Saturday's big game

•    U's welcome back top scorer
•    Barnett ready to face the U's
•    Full ticket and travel details 

United welcome back Danny Hylton after suspension as they head for Shrewsbury Town in Sky Bet League 2. The top scorer has missed the last two games after picking up ten yellow cards through the season but is in contention again as the U's look to bounce back after losing to Hartlepool at home on Tuesday.

See Michael Appleton give his thoughts ahead of the game in Yellow Player, where the Preview Show features Danny Hylton and Kemar Roofe, and we will also have full commentary on the whole game. 

There will be a familiar face in the Shrews side, with Tyrone Barnett likely to lead the line after spending the first half of the season at the Kassam Stadium. The big striker scored six times in 12 starts for the U's on loan from Peterborough and twice in seven starts since his arrival at the Greenhous Meadow. 

Barnett may start on the bench tomorrow as the Shrews look to keep an unchanged line-up from the side that won 4-1 at Morecambe on Tuesday. Liam Lawrence started the match after almost a month out with bruising on the bone as Town regained second spot. Andy Mangan returned as a late substitute in midweek after being out since January with a knee problem, while James Wesolowski and Nathaniel Knight-Percival are out for the season with knee injuries.

Speaking about the win against Morecambe, Shrews manager Micky Mellon said, “It was a terrific performance. A performance of great control in both halves and I couldn’t ask for any more.

“Every game is massive now but what pleased me most was that the attitude was fantastic right from the first whistle."
