PREVIEW Oxford United v Doncaster Rovers

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game at the Kassam Stadium

11 October 2019

Oxford United welcome Doncaster Rovers to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday.

Team News
United are without Ben Woodburn and Anthony Forde after the pair picked up injuries at Accrington last Saturday. Woodburn had an operation on Monday on a broken metatarsal and is likely to be out for around three months while Forde, having come on as a sub for Woodburn, was then replaced himself after picking up a groin strain which will keep him out for two or three weeks.

Alex Gorrin is likely to come back into midfield where Jamie Hanson is still missing with a hamstring injury.

The Opposition
Doncaster Rovers manager Darren Moore took over from Grant McCann in the summer and has guided his side to tenth in the table, just behind the U's on goal difference.

“The facts speak for themselves – I arrived here just before the start of the season,” Moore said this week. “The team is relatively new. I think we’ve got two players starting that were starting games last season. We’re a squad, we’re in it together. It’s a new style of play, a new philosophy.”

“While we continue to work to try to get better the games are coming thick and fast,” he added. “But I’m hopeful that people have seen a change to the team that was here last season in terms of the personnel, the bodies and the style of play.”
