PREVIEW Port Vale v Oxford United

U's head for Vale Park on Easter Monday

8 April 2023

Oxford United head for Port Vale on Easter Monday (3pm) looking to build on three draws in a row since Liam Manning took over.

The U's added a 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Good Friday to draws away at Morecambe and Peterborough as they try to pull away from the danger zone at the foot of Sky Bet League 1.

The U's will be without skipper Elliott Moore after he suffered a concussion during Friday's game. Moore thumped a header at goal, only to see it spectacularly saved and then have to leave the field after taking a blow to the head in the same incident.

United do have options in the centre of defence with Ciaron Brown and Sam Long able to move across from full back and Irish defender Stephan Negru coming on as a sub for Moore on Friday. It was Negru's first appearance for the club and you can see an exclusive interview in iFollow ahead of the game.

Vale will be without Jack Stevens and Matty Taylor who are ineligible against their parent club. Vale have only won two of their last 16 games and manager Darrell Clarke apologised to supporters after the 3-0 defeat at Accrington Stanley on Friday

“First, it is an apology to our tremendous away support. They didn’t deserve a performance like that. I take full responsibility. It is my team, my squad of players. As managers that is what you have to do. You take the plaudits when things are going well. Things aren’t going very well at all at the minute and I take full responsibility for that so I apologise to our supporters who followed us in their numbers for that performance.

"You can see the confidence in the players is draining. It is up to myself and my staff to pick that up and go again on Bank Holiday Monday.”
