PREVIEW Rotherham United v Oxford United

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game

18 October 2019

Oxford United head for Rotherham United on Saturday.

TEAM NEWS
United will wait on the fitness of midfielder Alex Gorrin who took a kick to the ankle in the win over Doncaster Rovers but is expected to be available against the Millers. Striker Matty Taylor has been back in training after illness and should be available as well  but former Rotherham forward Anthony Forde misses out

Forde and Jamie Hanson are both making good progress after hamstring problems but Ben Woodburn, George Thorne and Malachi Napa are still unavailable after long term problems.

A fifth yellow card means that the U's are without centre-back Rob Dickie so Elliott Moore is expected to come back into the side alongside skipper John Mousinho who stands by for his 100th appearance for the U's.

THE OPPOSITION
Rotherham United manager Paul Warne has seen his team hit good form ahead of the game:

"We're on a good run and we've won three games in a week which gives the lads a lot of confidence. Overall, I was very pleased with how we performed and on the back of the win over Coventry as well, it's a good place to be as always.

"I lean on Richie Barker all of the time for information so it will be no different this weekend, but he knows Karl Robinson very well from his time at MK Dons and Oxford's style of play will be similar to what got him success during his spell there. We've watched their last few games and we have an idea of how they're going to play, but on the day it's another ball game completely. We'll prepare the lads on what they do in and out of possession and hopefully we can make it an entertaining game come Saturday."
