Fleetwood – Oxford preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Fleetwood vs Oxford lineups.

Fleetwood

Fleetwood have made an awful start to the season. They have just 1 point from 6 games and lost their last 5 matches in a row. This poor run of form resulted in coach Scott Brown being sacked during the international break. His replacement Lee Johnson, sacked only recently from Hibernian in Scotland, was announced on Monday. 

The new gaffer is not expected to change too much for his first game in charge but he might tweak the 3-5-2 shape as it Hibs he used mainly 4-3-3 formation. 

The Cod Army have been poor at both ends of the pitch so far. They are yet to keep a clean sheet this season, while at the same time scoring only 3 goals in 6 rounds. 

Two of the team’s best defenders Montgomery and Sarpong-Wiredu continue to nurse injuries. Both are expected to be missing again and the back line is much weaker without them. 

Winger Omochere is also a doubt. He’s been absent for several weeks due to COVID. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Lynch (GK), Nsiala, Lawal, Earl, Rooney, Robertson, Vela, Mayor, Johnston, Stockley & Marriott 

Oxford

Oxford saw their 4-game winning streak coming to an end in the last game right before the international break. Lost 1-2 vs Port Vale with a big part in that playing the double sending off of top goalscorer Harris (3 goals) and defender Leigh. Even reduced in numbers Oxford could have easily saved a point from this game. 

Dropped just 2 points in their last 5 matches vs Fleetwood. Last season came from behind to win 2-1 when they came to town. 

Star striker Harris and the useful defender Leigh are now missing suspended. This should see Perkins make a rare start up front but Harris will be missed as he was in fine form so far with 3 league goals already. 

Browne, Henry and O’Donkor are the long-term absentees. None of them plays often even when fit though. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Beadle (GK), Stevens, Moore, Negru, Brown, McGuanne, Brannagan, Goodrahma, Rodrigues, Bodin & Perkins 

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

Player to Watch: Jayden Stockley

Fleetwood’s main centre forward Jayden Stockley is yet to score this season. Only if he starts contributing to the Cod Army can hope to change their fortunes. Stockley had a strong end to the previous campaign and he scored 4 vital goals that delivered narrow wins from March onward. 

If Stockley can rediscover that form now Fleetwood might be finally celebrating their first win.
