Oxford United`s team from the 14th March defeat were: Eastwood in goal, then Edwards, Nelson, Dunkley, Johnson, Maguire, Ledson, Lundstram, Hall, McAleny and Hemmings. The substitutes were: Skarz, Martinez, Sercombe, Ruffels, Rothwell, Raglan and Stevens.
On Saturday in the curtain raiser only 10 of that team remain. Chey Dunkley has gone to Wigan Athletic. Phil Edwards, Joe Skarz and Chris Maguire have gone to Bury. Conor McAleny has gone to Fleetwood Town. Liam Sercombe has gone to Bristol Rovers. Antonio Martinez I believe is still at West Ham United. Michael Appleton has teamed up with Craig Shakespeare at Leicester City and John Lundstram has gone to Sheffield United.
My line up for Saturday would be: Simon Eastwood, Canice Carroll, Curtis Nelson (capt), Mike Williamson, Josh Ruffels, Rob Hall, Ryan Ledson, Marvin Johnson, James Henry, Jon Obika and Jack Payne. What formation will Pep Clotet go with? The traditional 442 or will he play with 451, 433?
I guess that we will find out just before 2 o clock on Saturday afternoon.
Come On You Yellows!
