TEAM NEWS

Jon Obika and Dwight Tiendalli have both trained all week, with Rob Hall joining in for the last two days as well to give Pep Clotet some interesting choices.United have beaten Peterboorugh and AFC Wimbledon in emphatic style and Pep must decide whether to bring the trio back into the group or allow them extra recovery time ahead of home games against Charlton and Rotherham next week.

Gino van Kessel did not join the Curacao squad for their game in Qatar after damaging his hamstring last weekend. The forward will be assessed today but Canice Carroll returns to the squad after playing two of the Republic of Ireland under 19 side's three games last week.

Travel Advice

We have been informed that the M4 Westbound will be closed from junction 12 to 13 on Saturday. Although most United fans will join the motorway further along (The Chieveley junction is 13) fans travelling from London may wish to make different travel plans.

Due to electrification works which were called at short notice there will be no trains through Reading Station on Saturday. Trains from Oxford will run to Didcot, and fans can change there for Bristol, but Oxford station is expected to be very busy
