PREVIEW Oxford United v Fulham U21

Robinson sits out tonight's Checkatrade Game

4 September 2018

Manager Karl Robinson will be in the stand tonight rather than in the dug out after he was given a two game touchline ban and fined £1,000 for comments made after the game against Accrington Stanley. The United boss will also be in the stand on Sunday when United welcome Coventry City in Sky Bet league 1.

Team News

After a terrific away point at Sunderland on Saturday the U's look to continue their good form against Fulham this evening.

Jamie Hanson will miss out due to suspension, however it will not contribute towards his three-game ban after his red card at Newport last week. Meanwhile long term absentees Rob Hall, Simon Eastwood and Samir Carruthers all continue their recovery.

Youngster Shandon Baptiste is likely to feature again following his impressive performance against the league favourites at the weekend.

Derek Fazackerley has been a part of the two trips to Wembley in this competition, and says it's a good opportunity for players on the fringe of the squad.

"That's the ultimate prize, a trip to Wembley and we've benefitted from that, but I also think it's an opportunity to give one or two players, who have not got as much football as they would have liked, a game and keep them involved which is very important.

"From a momentum point of view it gives us the opportunity to have another home game, and build some momentum on the back of a couple of decent results that we've just had, so if we can do that then the competition serves a good purpose."

The Opposition

Fulham will be without promising winger Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson after the 19-year old secured a loan move to Danish top-flight side Vendsyssel FF on deadline day last Friday. Meanwhile Steven Sessegnon, the twin brother of teammate Ryan, could feature after his first team involvements in the EFL Cup last week.

Last season the side were unfortunate to miss out on qualifying for the knockout stages with two wins and a defeat. The young Whites are still chasing their first win of the season, but are looking to build on a good point at home to Southampton on Saturday.
