PREVIEW Southend United v Oxford United

A full preview as Oxford United head for Roots Hall

22 November 2019

After a weekend off United resume league action with a trip to Southend on Saturday

TEAM NEWS
United have no new injuries and everyone got 45 minutes in a behind closed doors friendly against a Championship side on Tuesday.

Jamie Hanson is expected to be back in full training next week with Cameron Brannagan a week to ten days behind that and George Thorne, Malachi Napa and Ben Woodburn all making progress after long term injuries.

Josh Ruffels returns to the squad after an ankle injury, which should mean his 199th start for the U's

THE OPPOSITION
Southend boss Sol Campbell was at the Kassam Stadium for our last home game and told the Southend Echo that “We will have to be on our toes against Oxford but we will be.”

“Maybe a month ago it would’ve been a different story for us but most of our players have moved up five, 10 or 15 per cent performance wise. They’re doing more but we have to keep going. We have to keep working hard and take the handbrake off but we have to fight for every single point whoever we’re playing.”
 
“We’ve done some technical stuff, we’ve rested and done fitness work too since the last game,” said Campbell. “Everything is moving in the right direction. I’m really pleased but we have to keep the faith and this intensity.”
