PREVIEW Oxford United v Plymouth Argyle

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

16 February 2018

Oxford United welcome Plymouth Argyle to Grenoble Road on Saturday.


The U's should have Jon Obika available again as they look to get back to winning ways. The striker limped off during the 3-2 win at Charlton two weeks ago after feeling a hamstring tighten up but has been back in training this week and is expected to be part of the squad.

Cameron Brannagan could also be involved for the first time since joining from Liverpool. The midfielder rolled an ankle in training in his first week of training  but has trained all week and caretaker boss Derek Fazackerley told iFollow that Brannagan will come into his plans either this weekend or the following week when United travel to Northampton Town.

See Faz discussing all the latest injury news as well as previewing the game, all in iFollow right now.

Our supporters can help us by getting behind the players and encouraging them. They have done that ever since I have been at this football club and hopefully they can do it again this Saturday and give us that extra little bit to help us get that win we need.
