Oxford United welcome Fleetwood Town to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday (3pm)

TEAM NEWS
The U's are still without Marcus McGuane who will be out of action for around a month after suffering a thigh strain in the win over Bristol Rovers last weekend.

Cameron Brannagan came into the side at Rochdale on Tuesday and is likely to continue before sitting out Tuesday night's Papa John's Trophy quarter final game at home to AFC Wimbledon. Jamie Hanson, a starter at Rochdale, vies with Liam Kelly for the other midfield place while James Henry and Mide Shodipo both scored after coming on as subs on Tuesday night and will be hoping to start this time around.

THE OPPOSITION
Interim Head Coach Simon Wiles has overseen clean sheets for the Cod Army in their last two games against Wigan Athletic and Northampton Town and is looking for his side to build from that on Saturday.

“We are just going about our business; we know how Oxford play and we need to make sure that we are difficult to beat and give ourselves the best platform to move forward and get the three points" he said. "That’s our mentality at the minute, we just need to make sure we start well, which we have been doing, but getting those early goals, and hopefully then will be the platform for us to go on a run and give us a chance to move up the table.

“As you have seen, if you can string two or three wins together, you give yourselves the best opportunity to move forward. You get in form, you build confidence, you get momentum, and all of a sudden, you can become the form team in the league.”
