PREVIEW Lincoln City v Oxford United

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

20 September 2019

Oxford United head for Lincoln City on Saturday.

TEAM NEWS
United welcome back Jamie Mackie and Shandon Baptiste and will wait to see whether centre-half Elliott Moore is fit enough to return after a back spasm last weekend.

Mackie had a similar back problem last week while Baptiste took a kick to the ankle while setting up United's final goal in the win against Tranmere but both have trained all week with Moore stepping up to train today and hopeful of being involved against the Imps.

See Karl Robinson previewing the game in iFollow right now where we have all kinds of madness in the Preview Show plus the much more sensible thoughts of former Lincoln defender Rob Dickie.

THE OPPOSITION
Caretaker boss Jamie McCombe has stepped up since the departure of the Cowley brothers for Huddersfield

“The effort and willingness the lads put in at Rochdale was great and we executed the game plan really well in the second half" he told the official Lincoln website.“We will take a lot of confidence from that and hopefully take that into Saturday. For the three-years I have been back here as a coach, the players have all remained focused and shown that grit and determination.”

“We are aware that Oxford are a very good team who play free flowing football,” said McCombe. “The football in League One is more possession based compared to what we experienced last season and a lot of the teams play in a very similar way. I have played against a side managed by Karl and they always provide a challenge.

“Rob (Dickie) is a really good player for them, he played for us here when we played a more direct style of football but he is technically good and comfortable on the ball. We thought he would have a bright future in the game when he was playing for us.”
