Oxford Utd V Wigan at The Kassam Stadium : Match Preview

21 December 2017
Oxford almost at full strength for Wigan game

Oxford have no fresh injury worries for the visit of League One leaders Wigan.

The U's are seeking to remain in play-off contention and have only long-term knee injury victim Ivo Pekalski out.

Manager Pep Clotet may rotate his options following the goalless draw at Rochdale and at the start of the busy festive run.

Joe Rothwell has come off the substitutes' bench in the last two games following a hamstring problem and could be in contention to start.

Wigan have striker Ryan Colclough available again after illness.

Colclough missed the leaders' trip to AFC Wimbledon last week after suffering from a fever but has been back in training this week.

Manager Paul Cook has no new injury concerns.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones (shoulder), defender Craig Morgan (hip) and midfielder Shaun MacDonald (broken leg) remain on the sidelines.
