15 March 2019

Oxford United take on Bradford City on Saturday

TEAM NEWS
United have no new injuries after away games at Gillingham and Rochdale this week but Karl Robinson has some interesting choices to make.

In midfield John Mousinho is fit again after a calf injury and challenges Ahmed Kashi for the holding midfield role while Mark Sykes, James Henry and Cameron Brannagan compete for a place slightly further forward in the same midfield.

Up front Jordan Graham, Marcus Browne, Luke Garbutt and Gavin Whyte challenge for the two wide roles and Jerome Sinclair and Jamie Mackie are in contention for the striker position. Whyte and Jonte Smith are both available but will miss next week's game at Coventry followng their international call ups.

The Opposition

Manager Gary Bowyer is focussed purely on Saturday's game rather than the remainder of the season as his new side fight to stay in League 1.

“The focus here now is completely on Oxford,” he said. "We can’t control the other factors so we’re not going to waste time doing that. We must concentrate on ourselves and produce the performances. It’s important we build on the two games we’ve had so far. The mood in the camp is very good.

“On day one, I drew out the boundaries of what I expect from the players. I reiterated that yesterday. We will fight for every ball in every minute that’s available to try and get us the victory this weekend and try and get us out of the bottom four.”
