PREVIEW Gillingham v Oxford United

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

17 January 2020

Oxford United head for Gillingham in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday.

TEAM NEWS
United will wait on the fitness of Cameron Brannagan after a knee problem but welcome Jamie Hanson back into the squad after injury. The former Derby man has trained all week after a hamstring problem and comes back in to contention with James Henry out for another three weeks with a thigh strain.

Anthony Forde is well on the way to a return after a broken rib while Ben Woodburn and Malachi Napa continue to make progress.

THE OPPOSITION
Gillingham are on a seven-game unbeaten run and Manager Steve Evans is eyeing up a play-off surge in the second half of the season

“We need to be coming out of this tough run of games in the mix," he said. "If we win on Saturday then we are right in it. If we could get near that top group, never mind in it, that would be outstanding from the players, who have to deliver, and the brilliant staff.
 
“My remit here was to not give the chairman sleepless nights towards the end of the season, thinking we need a couple of wins to stay up. If you measure it on that then I think we will do alright, but I came here thinking ‘can I do the impossible?’
