PREVIEW Oxford United v Portsmouth

U's look for Leasing.com progress

8 October 2019

Oxford United look to reach the knock out stages of the Leasing.com Trophy when they welcome Portsmouth to the Kassam Stadium tonight (7.45pm)

Team News
United boss Karl Robinson will name a strong side, knowing that a win or draw would see his side through against a Pompey side who are already through after winning both games so far.

With Ben Woodburn joining Jamie Hanson and Malachi Napa on the injured list there could be chances for Mark Sykes, Elliott Moore, Sam Long and Rob Hall but Anthony Forde misses out after picking up a groin strain at Accrington on Saturday.

Young left back Kevin Berkoe is also unavailable after picking up a hip injury last week but there could be opportunities for Kyran Lofthouse, Fabio Lopes and Nico Jones to step up into the senior squad.

See Karl previewing the game in iFollow right now.

The Opposition

Pompey have already beaten Crawley and Norwich U21s and will aim for a clean sweep with a third win tonight

Ronan Curtis and John Marquis are both unable to feature and boss Kenny Jackett will field a young side:

"Ronan Curtis has got a tight hamstring that kept him out against Doncaster and saw him withdraw from the Republic of Ireland squad. John Marquis has a bruised toe from Saturday and he should be okay for Gillingham, but won’t be involved against Oxford".

"We’ve qualified already and it will be a very youthful side at Oxford – it’s important our supporters understand that" he said.
