PREVIEW Oxford United v Millwall

A full guide to tonight's Carabao Cup tie at the Kassam Stadium

27 August 2019

Oxford United welcome Millwall in the second round of the Carabao Cup tonight (7.45pm)

Team News
Matty Taylor limped off in the first half at Bristol Rovers with a groin strain and will have a scan later today to assess the damage, ruling him out tonight's game and opening the door for Jamie Mackie to start, especially with Malachi Napa out of action with a broken leg sustained in the last round of the competition.

New signing George Thorne could be involved for the first time as could striker Daniel Agyei who has looked sharp in training. Kevin Berkoe, who made his debut in the win over Peterborough in round one, is included in the squad once more while Shandon Baptiste is hoping to play some part on his return from injury.

The Opposition
Millwall boss Neil Harris is expecting to be in the technical area despite a red card at Middlesbrough on Saturday

“I’m hopeful that once the fourth official puts his report in then the outcome will be that I was trying to get the ball back" he said. "I shouldn’t have gone into their [Middlesbrough’s] technical area but that was the end of it. We had a beer afterwards and there didn’t seem to be too much of a problem. I’m certainly expecting to be on the touchline on Tuesday and Saturday."

Millwall will be without winger Jed Wallace as he serves the second of a three-match suspension. Jiri Skalak (ankle) will also miss out through injury, as will Mahlon Romeo.
