A full guide to Saturday's big match at the Kassam Stadium• "One last push" says Appleton
• Mullins and Roofe return
• Wycombe boss looks to ruin the party
• Full details for the big game
Oxford United welcome back Johnny Mullins and Kemar Roofe as they look for the win that would seal promotion against Wycombe Wanderers at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday (3pm).
Top scorer Roofe and the influential Mullins both missed the win at Carlisle last weekend through injury but trained yesterday and will return to virtually a full squad for the U's: defender Jordan Evans and striker Ryan Taylor are both making good progress but will miss out this time around
"We won't change what we have been doing all season" Michael Appleton told Yellow Player HD yesterday. "We know what we have to do and one last push will do it now. The players look focussed and ready and we can't wait for the game to come around now."
See a full video preview with Michael, Danny Hylton and a full Preview Show in Yellow Player HD where we will have the whole game LIVE.
Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth believes that his side can come to Oxford looking to ruin the U's promotion party
“Derbies are what the fans love and they relish it" he said. "To give the fans something on the last day would be brilliant if we can and I am sure a few Wycombe fans would love to spoil the party.”
“Oxford have a really good squad and are a big side in the division, so we will work hard to get the win. It is important for the fans and I am sure we will be forgiven for this bad run if we can turn Oxford over.”
The game is ALL TICKET and all seats in the home areas sold out over a week ago. Wycombe Wanderers have sold over 1,000 tickets from their allocation and are only selling to their own fans who are already on their ticket database.
Fans without a ticket should not come to the Kassam Stadium on matchday.PROGRAMME
