PREVIEW Oxford United v Accrington Stanley

U's look to make it three wins in a row as they welcome Stanley

25 February 2020

Oxford United welcome Accrington  Stanley to the Kassam Stadium tonight in Sky Bet League 1.

United have major injury doubts over Anthony Forde, Nathan Holland and Mark Sykes after the win at Ipswich on Saturday. Forde and Holland both picked up hamstring strains while Sykes has been ill since the weekend and was not involved in training yesterday.

With John Mousinho still sidelined United recalled defender Rob Atkinson from his loan at Eastleigh yesterday and the former Fulham youngster could be involved with the first team squad for the first time. 

Liam Kelly is still troubled by a hamstring problem but could be involved on Saturday when the U's welcome Southend United.

Accrington boss John Coleman saw his side push leaders Rotherham close on Saturday and is now looking forward to a trip to the Kassam Stadium.

“Oxford have got back on track after their FA Cup run and they are probably one of the best teams who have played here,” he told the official Accrington website. 
“They are a top side, they turned in probably the best performance at our place this season when we drew 2-2 with them and it was a cracking game. We know all about them and they will know about us.
“I like Karl, it will be good to see him and have a bit of banter on the sidelines and hopefully get the win.
“He knows good players and he sets them up well, he plays attractive football and he plays football the way I like it to be played so that means it should be a good game, weather permitting. Oxford can be a big club and Karl has got them going now and, if he gets them promoted, who knows what they can do in the Championship?”
