PREVIEW Oxford United v Northampton Town

Oxford United welcome Northampton Town to the Kassam Stadium this evening in Sky Bet League 1  (7.45pm)

Having gone five games unbeaten the U's look to win the first of two home games this week knowing that a win tonight would lift them to fifth in the table.

United have no new injuries despite a bruising encounter at Wycombe on Saturday. Skipper Elliott Moore missed that game with a hip injury while midfielder Marcus McGuane felt a quad muscle tighten up in training the day before and wasn't risked at Adam's Park.

McGuane will miss out while Moore is doubtful for this evening's game, although both should be available for the home game with Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Cobblers Boss Jon Brady knows that his side face a tough task tonight.

"When we looked at this month, we knew how tough it would be with the challenges we face and the teams that we're coming up against and what we have available” he said.  “We know it’s going to be a hard game but we hit a good rhythm in the game on Saturday and hopefully we can carry that on at Oxford. They are right up there but we’ve shown we can put in good performances against strong sides and Oxford are a very strong side.

“It should be a terrific atmosphere and to have 1,300 fans travelling on a Tuesday night is a terrific effort. It’s great to see Sixfields packed out on a more regular basis and with the Saints as well it feels like there is a real vibrance to the town right now.

“The crowds have really added to the energy in the games and that is hugely important. I feel the players have created a really good connection with the fans and hopefully we can give the fans something back again on Tuesday night.”
