A bumper crowd will be there to cheer on the U's tomorrow with tickets reduced to just £10 to see Karl Robinson's side take on Morecambe at the Kassam Stadium.

TEAM NEWS
The U's have Karl Robinson back at the helm after covid and will be looking to make it four wins in a row after a Papa John's Trophy win over Spurs added to victories over Shrewsbury and Burton in the league.

Sam Winnall (calf) is the one injury doubt with Ryan Williams recovered after illness.

It's a landmark game for James Henry who makes his 200th appearance for the U's

See James, Karl and Billy Bodin all previewing the game in iFollow.

THE OPPOSITION
A 1-1 draw against leaders Plymouth Argyle last weekend ended Morecambe’s four-game losing run but boss Stephen Robinson expects a tough game against a side managed by his namesake

“They don’t get any easier,” he said “Oxford are a team that I have a lot of time for. I know Karl well and he’s got a good squad of players. I’ve worked with some of those players and know people like Gavin Whyte and Mark Sykes.

“They have real talent in their squad and they play a really good brand of football. They are in a good position in the table but, as we showed against Plymouth, we can be a match for those sides.”
