PREVIEW Gillingham v Oxford United

A full guide to tonight's Checkatrade Trophy Game

5 December 2017

Oxford United travel to Gillingham tonight in the Checkatrade Trophy. Here we have a full guide to the game.

United have Gino van Kessel available again after a hamstring problem and boss Pep Clotet must decide whether to bring him back into the squad or hold him back until Saturday's home game against Doncaster in the league. With Wes Thomas and Jon Obika both in good goalscoring form the return of van Kessel and Agon Mehmeti, who is  expected to return next week, boosts United's attacking options while in defence Sam Long and Charlie Raglan are also approaching full fitness.

Canice Carroll may return to the starting eleven tonight while young winger Malachi Napa could play some part in the game for his senior debut.

To help you enjoy the game here are a few FAQs

1. How much does it cost?

£5, but if you are already a subscriber then it is FREE as part of your package

2. Will it have commentary?

YES. There is a neutral commentator at the game who will provide live commentary on to both club's feeds.

3. Can I still listen to BBC Oxford's commentary?

YES. That is available as well

4. Is it just once camera?

NO. There are four cameras all around the ground

5. Will it work on any device?

All you need to do is download the Oxford United Official app, which is available in the Apple App store and from Google Play. We are currently unsure if it will work on Amazon Fire tablets

6. I can't get it to work. 

That's not a question! But we do have a representative of the EFL here as well as both clubs monitoring the feed and we will do our utmost to ensure the feed works as planned. If you are experiencing problems then email rather than the club.

There will be a report and gallery right here at the final whistle and live tweets throughout the game from @OUFCOfficial (which is why we can't act as customer support through the match as well!)
