Oxford United head for Exeter City tonight in the leasing.com Trophy
'There's only two Jack Stevens' for the U's tonight. Goalkeeper Jack stands by to play in goal with Simon Eastwood ruled out with a knee injury, and he will be joined in the squad by namesake midfielder Jack Stevens.
Jack is a talented forward or midfield player who has been part of the under 18 side for the last two years and has been a regular scorer this season. He joins Fabio Lopes and Nico Jones in the senior squad tonight and will wear number 44. For identification purposes one will be in green, one will be in yellow!
Jamie Mackie returns to the club where he first made his name and Jamie Hanson comes back into the squad for the first time after a hamstring problem while under 23 keeper Max Harris will be on the bench.

There is a familiar face at Exeter these days in striker Alex Fisher, yet another product of the successful Oxford United Academy programme and once a teammate of Matty Taylor at the Kassam Stadium
“I had had a taste with it at Oxford and it was a shame that it didn’t quite work out for me there” he said. Alex actually made his Oxford debut away at Exeter in 2008 and following successful spells abroad it was then back to the UK where he has played for Mansfield Town, Torquay United, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Motherwell and Yeovil. “When I heard that the manager (Matt Taylor) was interested, I said straight away that it was something I would like to have further discussions about” he said “I think the facilities we have got here, you are not going to see anywhere in League Two.”
