PREVIEW Peterborough United v Oxford United

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game

7 December 2018

Oxford United head for Peterborough tomorrow looking to build on a run that has contained just one defeat in the last 12 games.

TEAM NEWS

United could have Ricky Holmes available again after a back problem but will wait on the health of James Henry who was unwell earlier in the week but is expected to be in the squad. 

Cameron Brannagan's booking at Plymouth last week means he misses the next FA Cup game, away at Brentford, but can continue in the league, while Swedish midfielder Ivo Pekalski has been back in training this week after his loan at Halmstad ended, although he will not be involved on Saturday.

THE OPPOSITION

We are hosting a good side tomorrow,” Peterbrough boss Steve Evans said “Ignore their league position. They had a bad start because key men were injured, but they are in the middle of a good spell now. They have good players and a good manager in Karl Robinson. I saw Karl recently and congratulated him on coming through a tough start. He’s done a brilliant job and I’m pleased Oxford stuck with him.

“But we are determined to stay near the automatic promotion places. If we are still fourth and still this close to the top two on January 1 I will be very pleased because it would mean we have done well in five tough games before then."

There will be a minute’s silence before the game for former Peterborough owner Peter Boizot who died earlier this week.
