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

The U's need a win to keep their push for the play-offs alive while Plymouth will be keen to bounce back after a heavy defeat in midweek.

TEAM NEWS
United are without Brandon Barker who is still suffering from a hamstring problem and won't be risked. James Henry serves a one game suspension after his red card at AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night while Cameron Brannagan is recovering from a dead leg suffered in the same game and is rated doubtful.

Rob Hall and Luke McNally stand by to come in to the squad if required.

THE OPPOSITION
Plymouth boss Ryan Lowe is looking for a positive reaction after a 6-0 defeat against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday.

“We have addressed the lads, they are aware of all the situations that went on. They understand, they know it wasn’t good enough but it has gone and there is nothing we can do about it. We have just got to make sure we put on a better showing than we did on Tuesday.

“We didn’t punish them in terms of them doing 20 laps around the pitch. That’s not what I’m about, that’s not what I would do. No-one likes losing 6-0, let alone losing at all. They knew what was wrong and how it went wrong and we just hope that we don’t see one ever again.”

“The challenge now for the next three games is for the lads to go and pit their wits against some good players and some good football clubs. We have got Oxford, Sunderland and Gillingham, all fighting for different things.‘Go and be the best you can’. That’s the message to the boys.”
