TEAM NEWS
The U's have almost a full squad to choose from. John Mousinho is the only player missing as he recovers from an operation on his knee but otherwise the U's are fully fit and raring to go after a blank weekend after the game at Northampton was postponed last Saturday.

Last time out a Rob Hall goal saw the U's overcome Cambridge in the Papa John's Trophy, a game which saw Cameron Brannagan and Sam Winnall return after injury. However the previous game saw United secure their best win of the season away at Burton and boss Karl Robinson faces some interesting choices.

Hear Karl's thoughts in iFollow right now where you can also hear from Alex Gorrin and Rob Atkinson and see the whole game live.

THE OPPOSITION

Rovers boss Paul Tisdale is looking for his side to start their own run of positive results by ending United's tomorrow:

"They play (good) football and I’m expecting some space and I’m expecting a good football match" he said. "They’ve got a bit more form recently, so well done them, but with the way we played for the last four or five weeks I’m expecting we can give them a good game.

"As close as you are to losing two or three in this league, we’re as close to winning two or three in a row. That might be the start of a run on Saturday."

"I am of course aware of the league table, every game is vitally important no matter where you are in the table, but I’m more than confident, with the progress we’ve made already, with the players we have, with the feedback from the players, that we’re going to be absolutely fine and we’re going to move up the table over the next 20 plus games."
