PREVIEW Ipswich Town v Oxford United

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

12 November 2021

Oxford United travel to Portman Road on Saturday to take on Ipswich Town in Sky Bet League 1 (3pm)

United welcome back James Henry and Herbie Kane who both missed last weekend's FA Cup tie against Bristol Rovers.

However Gavin Whyte is away with Northern Ireland while Alex Gorrin's knee injury means he joins Sam Winnall (ankle) in the treatment room and keeper Jack Stevens is still out through illness. Jack is expected to start light training again next week, as will midfielder Ben Davis after an ankle injury he picked up away on international duty.

See Karl Robinson and Jordan Thorniley previewing the game in iFollow right now where you can hear from Sam Long, James Henry and Derek Fazackerley in the Preview Show.

"League One is a very strong this year, and I think tomorrow is another match that should be a good advert for the division," boss Paul Cook said

"We're going into a game against a side, in Oxford, that is one of the best in the division. Karl has done an excellent job and their squad has been built over a period of time. They've got to the play-offs and been knocking on the door in previous seasons, and they're continuing to improve I think.

"Our recent home form is good, though, and we want to keep going. The atmosphere tomorrow should be great and I think you'll see two sides intent on winning the game.

"I'm really looking forward to it, and I can't wait to see 20,000-plus supporters at Portman Road once again."
