PREVIEW Bolton Wanderers v Oxford United

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

20 August 2021

Oxford United travel to Bolton tomorrow in Sky Bet League 1, looking to continue their unbeaten start to the season

The U's kicked off the new season with a draw at Cambridge but then, having made progress in the Carabao Cup at Burton, they won back to back home games against Charlton and Crewe to leave them with seven points from a possible nine.

TEAM NEWS
United have picked up more than their fair share of injuries so far but mostly to right backs! Sam Long, Anthony Forde, Jamie Hanson and Ryan Williams have all been on the treatment table and Gavin Whyte filled in as a right wing back last game after Williams limped off. Forde and Williams could be available while Long is a couple of weeks away from a return and Hanson will step up training next week after a dislocated shoulder

Captain Elliott Moore is expected to be available after a chest injury while Joel Cooper could feature after his two goals for the Under 21s in midweek

See Karl previewing the game in iFollow right now where we have Elliott Moore as our guest in the new look Preview Show.

THE OPPOSITION
Captain Antoni Sarcevic believes Bolton Wanderers can make an impact after winning promotion last season

"People knowi we’re a force" he said "knowing we can take care of our business, but doing it quietly and just keep doing what we are doing"

“It’s exciting. They are the games you want to play in and why we worked so hard for promotion. It’s (Oxford) another team that did well last year but anyone can beat anyone. It is the league to watch.
