Rovers boss Darrell Clarke is expecting United to come at his side on Saturday when Derek Fazackerley takes charge of the U's at home for the first time.
“It doesn’t matter who is in the dugout – that’s from my perspective,” Clarke said. “Faz is very experienced manager and coach - he was assistant under Kevin Keegan and worked with Michael [Appleton] for a while.
“He knows the club in and out – he is also very hands on when on the training ground. I don’t think a lot has changed at Oxford and like I say, they’re off the back of a great result against Charlton.”
Rovers head to the Kassam with just one loss in seven, defeat to Shrewsbury ending their good run of form.
“I look forward to the games. We’ve been on a good run despite coming to a halt last weekend. So we’re looking forward to getting back on the saddle and get as many point as we can next week."
“We had a good January – don’t think you can take that away from us. From selling our best player from coming from behind to win three games, and draw one, it’s a testament to the lads.
“It was a great response to selling our best player in the window and it again proves we’re not a one man team.”
