PREVIEW Bristol Rovers v Oxford United

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game at the Memorial Stadium

26 January 2024

Oxford United head for Bristol Rovers on Saturday in Sky Bet League 1 (3pm)

Defenders Sam Long and Joe Bennett miss out after picking up injuries on Tuesday against Barnsley. Long will follow protocols around head injuries after a collision with Devante Cole while Bennett limped off with a calf injury before half time.

Oisin Smyth and Greg Leigh came on in their places and Leigh told iFollow

"It's  nice to be back out there. It wasn't the result we wanted and the conditions weren't great but I felt good to be playing again and got a few more minutes so I want to make up for lost time and be involved between now and the end of the season. We are in a stong position and want to build on that from here on in."

See the full interview with Greg and a longer version of the Des Buckingham interview below, all in iFollow.

Rovers boss Matt Taylor is hoping to have experienced trio James Wilson, George Friend and Chris Martin available again but Connor Taylor and Josh Grant both picked up injuries in the 1-0 home defeat against Exeter in midweek and illness is going around the Rovers squad as Taylor admitted:

"There’s certainly something going around the camp at the moment which we can’t quite nip in the bud and it’s a real shame because you welcome a couple back and then you lose a couple and then there’s some uncertainty in terms of who’s available going into the weekend. But, regardless of that, we’ve got to put out a team that can be competitive."
