• Full ticket and travel details
New signing Jordan Graham goes straight into the squad as Oxford United travel to York City this evening. The Wolves winger signed on an initial one month loan yesterday and trained with his new teammates for the first time at the start of a week that sees the U's staying in the north ahead of Saturday's game at Accrington Stanley.
After two successive home draws Head Coach Michael Appleton must decide whether to throw Graham straight into the starting line up or look for him to make an impact from the bench.
"He gives us options up front because he can play through the middle as well" Michael told Yellow Player HD. "He is fast and he is strong and will freshen things up. We have five games in 15 days and we know that Danny Hylton is on four yellow cards and Callum O'Dowda will miss the Wimbledon game if he gets called up for Ireland, so it was an easy decision to bring Jordan in when we knew he was available."
With no injuries after Saturday's 0-0 draw with Morecambe the U's are only without Sam Long, who is making good progress from an ankle injury but is still four to five weeks away from a return,

York boss Russ Wilcox believes that his side's performances have merited more than their league position suggests
“Oxford are not unbeatable, no team in League Two is. Our performances at home have been better than our results maybe suggest" he told the Yorkshire Post."“Ironically, our worst display was the one we won against Yeovil – though I’d take a repeat against Oxford.”
“Of course, we would all like more points and the only way to do that is by getting results – starting with Oxford. As with our opponents on Saturday (Notts County), there has been investment with Roofe and a few others coming in. But we are at home and will try to take the game to them.
Tom Platt has been recalled from his loan spell at Harrogate Town due to Luke Summerfield being out.
