PREVIEW Oxford United v Southend United

A full guide to Saturday's big match at the Kassam Stadium

13 April 2018

Oxford United welcome Southend United to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday as they look to end the week with three points.


A furstrating evening against Fleetwood on Tuesday did have its plus points with a fighting performance from the U's plus the return of Alex Mowatt in midfield after suspension and Curtis Nelson to the bench after injury.

Nelson is unlikely to be risked from the start despite playing 80 minutes of a Development game on Wednesday with no after effects but James Henry could be in contention after a back problem.

Joe Rothwell and Agon Mehmeti both limped away from the action on Tuesday and boss Karl Robinson will weigh up his options after trainiing today.

See Karl and Agon Mehmeti previewing the game, along with the Preview Show where Gino van Kessel and Peter Rhoades-Brown make guest appearances, all in iFollow right now.
