OXFORD United have named the same starting line-up for the third game running.

Boss Karl Robinson has opted to stick with the side who have beaten Blackpool and Scunthorpe United in the last fortnight – their first successive wins of the Sky Bet League One season.

Cameron Brannagan returns on the bench after serving a two-game ban.

There is also a place among the substitutes for Ahmed Kashi, who missed the win over Scunthorpe due to illness.

Boss Karl Robinson said: "The style we had to play at Blackpool wasn't overly pretty and the wind is going to get extremely strong today.

"The pitch is flat but very firm - it's not one you can play too much football on.

"Our bench is ridiculous, we'll make early substitutions definitely, because we kow we have players who can come on and make big impacts."

As a result, Samir Carruthers misses out as United have five other loan players in the 18-man squad.

Jonte Smith also makes way, having been an unused substitute last week.
