Sunderland Game Heading For a Sell Out

A full preview of tonight's Carabao Cup action

29 October 2019

Oxford United's Carabao Cup game against Sunderland tonight is heading for a sell out crowd.

When the Ticket Office opened this morning there were under 300 seats left for home fans, mostly in the South Stand Lower and Family areas. With over 1,000 tickets sold yesterday we strongly recommend fans to buy ASAP rather than run the risk of not getting in on the night.

Call 01865 337533 or visit oufctickets.co.uk to book and print your tickets at home.

TEAM NEWS
United will make changes after the win over Rochdale on Saturday which extended their unbeaten run to ten games.

Chris Cadden is expected to be fit after limping off on Saturday but Cameron Brannagan misses out with Karl Robinson telling us this morning:

"Cam is still very sore but because he played on with the injury we need to allow him time for things to settle down before we can get any conclusive results from scans and assessment. He won't be available tonight but we'll leave it for a few days now before we really know how long he will be out for."

Shandon Baptiste is likely to step in to midfield while Sam Long stands by to replace Cadden at right back if required.

THE OPPOSITION
Sunderland boss Phil Parkinson is looking for his side to be more ruthless after defeat at Shrewsbury on Saturday.

“I’ve spoken a lot about being effective with our play,” he said." At Shrewsbury we just couldn’t get it into the net, it’s as simple as that.

“I can’t fault the lads in terms of the effort and desire they showed,” he continued.

“We have got to move on, concentrate on the things we have done well in the last two games and take them into Tuesday night at Oxford.”
