PREVIEW Oxford United v Wycombe Wanderers

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game

29 March 2019

Oxford United welcome Wycombe Wanderers to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday

TEAM NEWS
United will wait to see if Gavin Whyte, Rob Dickie and Jordan Graham are available for selection with all three rated doubtful through injury. Whyte missed both games for Northern Ireland last week with a thigh strain while Dickie (calf) and Graham (knee) picked up knocks in the win at Coventry last weekend.

Jonte Smith and Samir Carruthers stand by for returns to the squad should any of the three miss out while youngsters Fabio Lopes and Nico Jones have been involved on the bench in recent weeks.

The Opposition

Wycombe will have around 1,800 fans making the short trip down the M40 and manager Gareth Ainsworth is hoping their support can inspire his team.

"Our fans are fantastic and they are really behind the boys. I have had some great comments and all I have to do is turn up at Oxford and see the numbers. You don't get that if they are not with the team and not all pushing for the completion of this five-year plan in place.

"I thank the fans in advance and I promise we will give our all and we will in the seven games after that as well. After 46 games, we will rightly be where we deserve to be and I am hoping it is a League One club and I am very confident we will get out of this."

"Oxford have some very good players and it will be a tough test. However, we embrace tough tests. You only have to look at those games against the likes of Sunderland and Portsmouth. I am sure they all know but there is no harm in reminding them that they have to be at their absolute best to get anything out of this game."
