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

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

Oxford

Oxford recorded their seventh league win in nine since the start of the season on Saturday. Dominant display on their visit to Stevenage brought a deserved 3-1 success. The U’s have now won 4 in a row and their confidence is great. 

Oxford play with some very good overlapping runs and they also use counter-pressing to great effect this season. Scored 4 goals in the last 4 rounds after stealing balls high up the pitch. 

Apart from midfielder Browne everyone else is fit so the manager is spoiled for choice right now. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Beadle (GK), Stevens, Moore, Long, Brown, Brannagan, McGuane, Goodrham, Rodrigues, Leigh & Harris

Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury recorded their first draw of the campaign on Saturday when showing some stubborn defending to earn a 0-0 home result vs Charlton. The Shrews once again struggled in attack though and their big issue this season has been scoring goals. 

Shrewsbury have scored only 1 goal in 4 away league matches played so far. They lost 3 of those 4 games too. 

Continue to be missing 3 regulars due to injuries – Nurse, Thorpe and Shipley remain in rehabilitation. Some rotation in attack is possible and recently signed striker Phillips, plus the frozen in the last 3 rounds Bowman push for starting roles. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Marosi (GK), Feeney, Flanagan, Dunkley, Winchester, Perry, Bayliss, Kenneh, Bennett, Phillips & Bowman
