PREVIEW Rochdale v Oxford United

A full guide to tonight's game

12 March 2019

Oxford United head for Rochdale in Sky Bet League 1 this evening.

TEAM NEWS
The U's will wait on the fitness of captain John Mousinho before naming their side. The influential midfielder was taken off as a precaution at Gillingham on Saturday after a calf muscle tightened up but he is expected to travel with the squad today and may be available: Ahmed Kashi stands by for a full league debut if not after impressing as Mousinho's replacement on Saturday.

Defeat at Gillingham came despite a very strong looking bench at Priestfield and Jamie Mackie, Gavin Whyte, Marcus Browne, Cameron Brannagan and Jamie Hanson will all be hoping to step up in to the starting eleven this evening.

THE OPPOSITION
Rochdale are two points behing the U's in the table after a win against fellow strugglers Shrewsbury on Saturday. Keith Hill's departure means that Brian Barry-Murphy is the caretaker -manager and he has midfielder Ethan Hamilton available again after suspension.

The on-loan Manchester United player is expected to return while Kgosi Ntlhe and midfielder Oliver Rathbone were both in the starting line-up against the Shrews after long injury lay-offs
