PREVIEW Accrington Stanley v Oxford United

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

8 February 2022

Oxford United travel to Accrington Stanley this evening (7.45pm)

United have no new injuries or suspensions after Saturday's win over Portsmouth but add Sam Baldock to the squad for the first time since his arrival on Friday.

The experienced striker is likely to be on the bench for the first time.

Sam Long missed that game with a tight calf but could be available again tonight while James Henry may be available again for Saturday's home game against Bolton. Marcus Browne continues to get closer to full fitness while Alex Gorrin and Jamie Hanson continue their recovery from long-term injuries.

See Karl, Matty Taylor and Herbie Kane previewing the game in iFollow right now.


“We are playing against a very good Oxford side tomorrow who have had some wonderful results" Accrington boss John Coleman said. "We have watched them a few times, we know what to expect, they are a good footballing team but we can compete against anybody.

“We have improved defensively, we have defended better than our goals against column suggests, we are eliminating silly mistakes and it took a wonder goal to beat us on Saturday. We have a big squad, we have never had the riches we have had, certainly this season, being able to have four quality players not even on the bench and leave good players at home.

“It shows the strength in depth and we are getting the players back from injury which is helpful.Things are looking promising for the strength of the squad and it’s up to me to pick the right team on any given day and make the right subs at the right time.”
