PREVIEW Oxford United v Gillingham

We look forward to Saturday's home game against the Gills

8 September 2017

Oxford United take on Gillingham at home in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday. Here we have a full guide to the game.

TEAM NEWS

United boss Pep Clotet has plenty of options for this game with Curtis Nelson available again after injury and new signings John Mousinho and Alex Mowatt both looking sharp in training.

Mousinho, who arrived from Burton on Deadline Day, and Mowatt, on loan from Barnsley watched the draw at MK Dons last weekend but will be hoping to be involved for the first time and Clotet is likely to bring in either Nelson or Mousinho at centre-half to allow Christian Ribeiro to switch to right back in place of Dwight Tiendalli who will be out for a month with a hamstring injury.

Another new face, Agon Mehmeti trained for the first time yesterday and could be on the bench.
