PREVIEW Oxford United v Bradford City

A full guide to Tuesday night's big game

12 September 2017

Two of League 1's in form sides meet tonight as Oxford United welcome Bradford City to gren


United boss Pep Clotet will be forced into changes with Christian Ribeiro and Jon Obika both unavailable through injury. Ribeiro felt a twinge in his knee during the warm up ahead of Saturday's win over Gillingham and is likely to be out of action for the trip to Blackpool on Saturday, as will Obika who limped off during the second half of Saturday's game.

Canice Carroll will continue at right back in place of Ribeiro but Pep Clotet must choose between Wes Thomas and Gino van Kessel to replace Obika up front. New signing Agon Mehmeti is another attacking option and could be on the bench for the first time..

Mike Williamson dropped to the bench at the weekend after missing a couple of days training to be at the birth of son Gray and may have to be patient after John Mousinho came in to the side and helped United keep a clean sheet.
