Oxford United vs Birmingham City

On Saturday, Oxford host there last home pre season friendly before the curtain raiser away to Oldham Athletic on the 5th August. It is with some regret that John Lundstram and Chris Maguire have both opted to ply there trade up North after respectively signing for Bury and Sheffield United. 

This season I would like to see some of the 1st year professionals get a chunk of the big time. I’ve always believed that if you are good enough your old enough to stake claim for a place in the starting eleven. Aaron Martin looked like the tallest outfield player in our squad now that Chey Dunkley has moved to Wigan Athletic. 

Will Dwight Tiendalli, Jon Obika and Xemi get game time on Saturday? What sort of team will Harry Redknapp bring to Grenoble Road? 

My starting eleven would be: Shearer, Ribeiro, Martin, Nelson, Ruffels, Rothwell, Johnson, Henry, Ledson, Obika and Thomas. 

My subs would be, Napa, Carroll, Hemmings, Stevens, Roberts, Xemi, Tiendalli.
