PREVIEW Scunthorpe United v Oxford United

Van Kessel Hoping for First Start

18 August 2017

Oxford United hope to keep their winning start to the season going when they travel to Scunthorpe United on Saturday

The U's have won both games so far including an opening day win at Oldham in their only game on the road so far.  Glanford Park has not been a happy hunting ground for the U's who haven't won there since 1965 but Pep Clotet's side are playing well and hoping to carry on that form.

Team News

The U's have plenty of attacking options with Gino Van Kessel making a spectacular cameo as a sub in last Saturday's 3-0 win over Portsmouth. The Curacaoan international smashed home a great goal with almost his first touch and will be hoping for a first start, while Kane Hemmings came through a reserve game against AFC Wimbledon in midweek and could be involved for the first time this season.

Spanish midfielder Xemi scored in that Wimbledon game and could be back on the bench.
