A full guide to tonight's game in the Papa John's Trophy

31 August 2021

Oxford United travel to Cambridge United in the Papa John's Trophy tonight (7pm)

The U's drew at the Abbey Stadium on the opening day of the season but both Managers are likely to make changes for the opening game in the group stages.

TEAM NEWS
United are likely to mix the experience of Simon Eastwood and John Mousinho with a number of their promising youngsters such as Leon Chambers-Parillon, Michael Elechi and Josh Johnson.

New signing Herbie Kane is included in the squad after joining on loan from Barnsley yesterday but Ben Davis who signed from Fulham today did so too late to be included this evening.
