Oxford United welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday (3pm)

​A bumper crowd is expected as Wednesday visit the Kassam Stadium for the very first time, looking to get revenge for United's 2-1 win at Hillsborough earlier in the season

The U's are without the suspended Herbie Kane who misses the second of three games, while midfielder Jamie Hanson limped off in a friendly against Cheltenham in midweek and will wait on scan results on a hamstring injury.

See Karl, Elliott Moore and Niall McWilliams previewing the game in iFollow.

THE OPPOSITION
Two of Wednesday's three former United players have been missing recently with Chey Dunkley and Mide Shodipo on the injured list, but Marvin Johnson has featured regularly in defence for Darren Moore's Owls.

Wednesday are one place and three points behind the U's after an excellent 4-2 win over fellow promotion hopefuls Plymouth Argyle last weekend.
