BARRING any last-minute issues, Oxford United boss Karl Robinson will have everyone available for tonight’s play-off final.

With the last batch of coronavirus testing coming back all clear yesterday, most of the side will be inked on the team sheet already, but just as in the semi-final there are a couple of decisions to make.

Ben Woodburn and Mark Sykes had one start each against Portsmouth and are likely to battle it out to get into midfield alongside Cameron Brannagan and Alex Gorrin.

There is also the matter of who leads the line.

With Matty Taylor unlikely to be fit for potentially 120 minutes, Robinson could go for the same tactic from the semi-final second leg and start Jamie Mackie.

However, with no more games to come and a week to recover in the build-up, the U’s boss admitted there was scope for a change of tack.

He said: “We’re not overly worried about getting miles in the legs, we’re at the point now where we don’t need it.

“As a manager (the semi-final) was difficult because you had a number of different facets you were always worrying about later on down the line.”

One thing which seems guaranteed is the key role played by substitutes.

Not many people would have expected Jamie Hanson to play 35 minutes in the semi-final second leg, but it reinforced the fact United need everyone.

Robinson said: “We’ve seen in all the games the people you bring on are fundamentally the ones who have the opportunity to become heroes.

“Four of our five penalty takers came off the bench against Portsmouth, it shows you how important fresh legs are.

“The tactical reason for (Hanson) was I didn’t feel we won an aerial duel in the middle of the park.

“I didn’t feel the game was right to find a way to change our style to the norm.

“The game was way beyond that point.

“We were in a dogfight at that stage.

“We have players with so much versatility and it doesn’t half help when you’re making changes.”
