PREVIEW Oxford United v Sunderland

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League

14 February 2020

Oxford United take on Sunderland at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday

United are without the suspended Alex Gorrin and the injured Liam Kelly. Kelly sustained a hamstring injury during the draw at Burton on Tuesday while Gorrin picked up his tenth yellow card of the season when replacing him at the Pirelli Stadium and misses two games.

Jamie Hanson has been struggling with illness but Jamie Mackie should be involved again after missing Tuesday's game due to a family bereavement. Marcus Browne remains a doubt with an ankle injury but Anthony Forde made his return after injury on Tuesday.

See Karl Robinson and John Mousinho looking ahead to the game in iFollow right now.

Sunderland have tightened up in defence with six clean sheets in their last seven games and seven wins from ten games have lifted them to fifth.

Former U's forward Chris Maguire has been among the goals and is expected to recover from a dead leg to play against the U's
“There was no need for us to risk him last night,” Phil Parkinson said after his side beat Rochdale in midweek “As soon as he had taken the knock, we took him straight off but he is feeling a lot better today. We will continue to assess him over the next few days.
“We have got players chomping at the bit for an opportunity to come in,” he added.
It's another big game for the U's. Tickets are available from until midday on Saturday or by calling 01865 337533 before 5pm on Friday. NO TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE GROUND ON MATCHDAY
