PREVIEW Forest Green Rovers v Oxford United

A full guide to tonight's Emirates FA Cup replay

20 November 2018

Oxford United and Forest Green Rovers meet again tonight as they replay in the Emirates FA Cup. A second round game away at Plymouth awaits the winners.

TEAM NEWS

United welcome back Jamie Mackie after suspension and Gavin Whyte after his international call up at the weekend. Mackie servd a one game suspension after picking up five yellow cards this season but his return, along with Whyte, gives Karl Robinson plenty to ponder up front where Marcus Browne, Sam Smith and Ricky Holmes started in the 1-0 win over Gillingham on Saturday.

Harvey Bradbury, who made his league debut in that game, is ineligible after scoring a hat-trick on loan at Woking in a previous round while the U's will wait on the fitness of left-back Luke Garbutt after a hamstring problem.

THE OPPOSITION

Forest Green missed the chance to further their play-off hopes when they lost 1-0 at home to Morecambe on Saturday in League 2 to slip to tenth place, but they showed in the first game that they are a very strong side and Manager Mark Cooper can't wait to see his side take on the U's:

“We’re looking forward to it,” he said. “The players should be looking forward to it, it’s a good game for us and it’s a good chance to get through against a good team. We know it’ll be a tough game, but we’re at home and I just want the players to take the bull by the horns and go and really mean it."
