PREVIEW Oxford United v Forest Green Rovers

A full guide to tonight's Papa John's Trophy game

8 December 2020

Oxford United welcome Forest Green Rovers to the Kassam Stadium tonight (7.45pm)

TEAM NEWS
The U's have under 16 striker Gatlin O'Donkor in the squad for the first time. The young forward from Reading was spotted at just 14 and has been with the Academy since then, stepping up to play for the under 18s this year.

Nico Jones and Leon Chambers-Parillon, who both played in the last round at Walsall are in the squad but Michael Elechi, who also played in that game, is unavailable through injury.

John Mousinho and Simon Eastwood are likely to add experience while Rob Hall could start against the side he was on loan at last season.

Hear from Jamie Hanson, Sean Clare and Craig Short in iFollow where you can view the whole game live.

THE OPPOSITION
There's a familiar face in the Forest Green Rovers squad: winger Nicky Cadden is the twin brother of Chris who spent the first half of last season on loan with the U's before joining Columbus Crew.

Cadden drew praise from boss Mark Cooper for his role in their 1-0 win over Harrogate at the weekend which moved them up to third in league 2.
