PREVIEW Sheffield Wednesday v Oxford United

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

1 October 2021

Oxford United head for Hillsborough on Saturday in Sky Bet League 1

United's team selection will depend on a couple of former Wednesday players. Striker Sam Winnall is unlikely to feature after missing training this week through illness but defender Jordan Thorniley is available again after missing Tuesday's win over Accrington.

Luke McNally stepped into the side and did well and boss Karl Robinson has to decide whether to change a winning formula.

Gavin Whyte also missed Tuesday after a calf injury and is rated doubtful while Marcus McGuane could be involved on Tuesday night when the U's welcome Stevenage in the Papa John's Trophy.

See Karl Robinson and Matty Taylor previewing the game in iFollow right now where you can hear from Luke McNally and Sam Long in the Preview Show.

It’s the first league meeting between the two sides in 30 years and the sides are both on 15 points after ten games.

Boss Darren Moore has seen his side build a three-match unbeaten run but skipper Barry Bannan was a sub in their last game; the first time that Bannan had not started a league game in almost two years.

There are three very familiar figures in the Wednesday squad in Mide Shodipo, Marvin Johnson and Chey Dunkley, all of whom will be keen to impress against their former club.
