Match Preview – Oxford Utd vs Bradford

Last Updated: 15/03/19 1:41pm

Oxford midfielder John Mousinho is back in contention for Saturday’s home game against Bradford.

Mousinho missed the goalless midweek draw at Rochdale due to a calf strain but is expected to return to the squad.

Boss Karl Robinson has no new injury or suspension problems as his side bid to climb out of the relegation zone. Jordan Graham and Jerome Sinclair are among those pushing for recalls to the starting line-up.

Bradford boss Gary Bowyer has reported no new selection worries following the midweek home defeat to Luton. But Bowyer, who will take charge of his third game for the club, will be without defenders Kelvin Mellor (knee) and Calum Woods again.

Bowyer is hopeful both players will return to play some part this season after they were forced out of the recent win against Peterborough. Winger Sean Scannell is continuing his recovery from a serious back injury.
