PREVIEW Leeds United v Oxford United

We look forward to the final pre-season game of the summer

28 July 2017

Oxford United conclude their pre-season games with a trip to Leeds United on Saturday.

Pep Clotet returns to Elland Road for the first time and has almost a fully fit squad to select from. Sam Long is the one slight doubt after a niggling knee injury that has restricted his appearances in pre-season, but Simon Eastwood should be available again after missing the game against Birmingham last week with a cut leg.

Dwight Tiendalli and Xemi Fernandez both made first appearances in that game and are looking to step up their match sharpness, while Kane Hemmings shold be involved after sitting out last weekend's game as a precaution.

The game came about as part of the Kemar Roofe transfer to Leeds and coach Chris Allen told us:

"Kemar did really well for us and was a pleasure to work with. He had that hunger to do well and to keep working at his game and it's no surprise that he has done well at Leeds."

See the full interview with Chris above.
