PREVIEW Portsmouth v Oxford United

A full guide to tonight's Sky Bet League 1 game

24 November 2020

Oxford United take on Portsmouth tonight at Fratton Park (7pm)

TEAM NEWS
United will make changes from the team that won at Wigan on Saturday. Jordan Obita made his first league start but is unlikely to feature so quickly after as as he eases himself back in to matches after a long lay off.

Matty Taylor is expected to be fit despite picking up a knock on Saturday while Jamie Hanson returns to the squad for the first time this season after a string of niggling injuries kept the Derby man out.

THE OPPOSITION
Pompey, fourth in the table, will put distant memories of the last time the teams met out of their minds tonight. That game saw the U’s go through to a Wembley play-off final but Assistant Manager Joe Gallen said

"‘You just have to concentrate on what comes next as opposed to what happened a couple of months ago – it’s irrelevant really,, the past has gone.

‘In this league, coming up against Oxford is always tough, coming up against Karl is always tough, but we are confident. Although I envisage another tight game. We’ve played them six times in two seasons now. Basically, they know a lot about us and we know a lot about them. You put all these draws down to that.

‘I expect them to be in the top six at the end of the season. I’m surprised they are not there already, but I expect them to be there pretty soon.’
