PREVIEW Stevenage vs Oxford United

We look ahead to tonight's game

29 August 2017

Oxford United head for Stevenage tonight in the Checkatrade Trophy. The U's, finalists for the last two years, will be looking to get this year's campaign off to a winning start but face a difficult task against unbeaten Stevenage.

TEAM NEWS

United have no fresh injury worries but boss Pep Clotet may be tempted to hand Dutch international Dwight Tiendalli a first appearance. The defender has been working hard on his fitness since joining just before the season started and been impressive in two development games, and the manager must decide whether to give Tiendalli and Spanish midfielder Xemi a chance to shine.

Jon Obika was impressive as a sub against Shrewsbury and could start while Canice Carroll and Aaron Martin will also be in the Manager's thoughts.

THE OPPOSITION

Stevenage have made a good start to the season, a 1-0 win at Barnet on Saturday keeping their unbeaten league start going with two wins following two draws to leave them in thrid place in the early league 2 table.

Boss Darren Sarll said

"We have given ourselves points on the board early on. No-one can take those points away from us. They are there, they are in the bank, they are in the pocket and we hopefully now have a psychological advantage because we know we are a good side."
