Oxford United welcome Swindon Town to the Kassam Stadium in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday (3pm)

TEAM NEWS
The U's have no new injuries after a win at Wigan and a draw at Portsmouth this week, two games which saw very different starting elevens.

Boss Karl Robinson stated ahead of Portsmouth that he had one eye on selection for Saturday when he selected his side which may mean a return for Matty Taylor, Marcus McGuane and Liam Kelly among others.

Sam Winnall (hamstring) and Malachi Napa (knee) remain sidelined while Cameron Brannagan continues to make good progress after an eye problem and has been working hard on the training pitches all week

THE OPPOSITION

New Swindon boss John Sheridan believes his new side are on the right track:

“I’ve seen good things so far. We look up for the fight, and once we get a few people back available fighting for a place it makes my decision a lot harder. I’ll be able to pick from a good, strong group of players and I think we’ll be OK.

“I’ve heard plenty about this rivalry. It’s obviously a shame the supporters aren’t here because it would have been a brilliant atmosphere, but it will still be a tough game.

“Oxford are a good footballing side who had a good result in midweek and last Saturday. I know Karl Robinson very well, his teams are always good, football-wise, but we go there with confidence after the performance against Lincoln.”
