The Big Preview: Oxford United (A)

Blackpool Travel To Kassam Stadium On Saturday

31 January 2020

The Seasiders are back on the road this weekend with another trip south – this time to Oxford United.

Simon Grayson’s side are looking to reignite the play-off push, with a 2-1 defeat at Wycombe on Tuesday night making it nine straight games without a victory. Oxford, meanwhile, are in the midst of a sticky patch themselves, having won only one match in their last seven games.

Saturday’s opponents sit four points off of the play-off places in eighth position, whereas Blackpool lie in 15th place – seven points off of United.

Blackpool got the better of Oxford in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, thanks to a 2-1 victory at Bloomfield Road back in August. Ryan Edwards and Armand Gnanduillet were on the scoresheet to secure the three points.

Team News:

Simon Grayson has several injury concerns heading into the game, with Jak Alnwick still recovering from an arm injury. Teddy Howe, who joined from Reading on Friday, will be in included in the squad.

Oxford’s top scorer James Henry is back after injury, with Matty Taylor and Cameron Brannagan close to a return.

The Referee:

Josh Smith will referee Saturday’s match at the Kassam Stadium.
