Sadio Mane: Forward celebrates Liverpool opener

Oxford have no fresh injury worries as they look to build on a morale-boosting victory when they host struggling York.

Kemar Roofe scored twice as the U’s saw off high-flying Wycombe 3-2 to end any lingering relegation worries and head coach Michael Appleton could name an unchanged starting line-up at the Kassam.

That means United, now 10 points clear of danger, may leave Kyle Vassell on the bench as the Peterborough loanee waits for his first start for the club following his temporary switch.

Callum O’Dowda may also have to bide his time as Appleton sticks with a winning formula.

York defender John McCombe is an injury doubt after being withdrawn at half-time in Friday’s home win against Mansfield.

Stephane Zubar replaced McCombe at the heart of defence and is expected to return to the starting line-up.

On-loan Peterborough goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik returns to contention following suspension and boss Russ Wilcox must decide whether to retain Michael Ingham in his starting XI or recall the Austrian.

Forward Michael Coulson overcame an abdomen strain to play the full 90 minutes on Friday and hopes to continue, but striker Emile Sinclair (thigh) remains doubtful as the Minstermen chase a third straight win.
