PREVIEW Oxford United v Plymouth Argyle

20 October 2015

We look ahead to tonight's game against the league leaders

•    United face the league leaders
•    Graham misses out
•    Plymouth wait on Reid
•    Full ticket details 

Oxford United welcome league leaders Plymouth Argyle to the Kassam Stadium tonight for one of the biggest games in Sky Bet League 2 so far this season.

The U's, unbeaten in six and unbeaten at home all season, must face the table-toppers without winger Jordan Graham who is suspended following his red card on Saturday. The on-loan Wolves winger was shown two yellow cards at Leyton Orient, meaning a one match ban and so will return to the squad on Saturday when United are at home to Barnet.

Michael Appleton has some interesting options available in Graham's absence. Alex MacDonald (once of Plymouth) and Danny Rose would be straight replacements out wide for Graham, or Danny Hylton or Pat Hoban could return up top if Kemar Roofe switches to the wing.

See Michael Appleton, Joe Skarz and a full Preview Show in Yellow Player HD, plus hear the whole game LIVE as well as watching extended highlights. 

Plymouth have picked up an impressive 29 points out of 39 so far this season but have a doubt over talismanic striker Reuben Reid, who has a hip problem, as well as influential midfielder Graham Carey.
Manager Derek Adams is well aware of the test his side face in coming to the in-form U’s.

 "Oxford have played 4-4-2 for most of the season, or 4-4-1-1” he told the Plymouth Herald. “They are a well organised team. They play with a rigid 4-4 and don't have wingers as such. It's going to be a difficult, tight match.

"It's a difficult league to play in and they have started the season well, like ourselves. They have got an experienced team and a big squad. They have got players that can score goals throughout their team."

Former U's stars Luke McCormick and Lee Cox return to the U's as part of the Argyle squad.
