A full guide to Sunday's Emirates FA Cup tie at the Kassam Stadium

Oxford United welcome Bristol Rovers to the Kassam Stadium on Sunday in the First Round of the Emirates FA Cup (1pm)

The U's welcome back Cameron Brannagan after illness. The midfielder missed last Saturday's 3-1 win over Morecambe but has returned to training and will be back in the squad although Jack Stevens is still out as he recovers from illness.

See Karl and Marcus McGuane previewing the game in iFollow.

Joey Barton believes his side are on the right track after a win at Harrogate last Saturday made it four unbeaten on the road.

“We’ve gone from not winning away for a year to unbeaten in four on the road so that for me is a sign of progress. Good signs are coming. We’ve got a lot of hard work to do, but we’re four unbeaten on the road and that is progress from where we were.

"Sometimes such circumstances can create a siege mentality in a dressing room and pull everyone closer together, which I’m pleased to say seems to have been the case.”
