Forest Green vs Oxford Lineups and Team News

Forest Green

Forest Green are going down a division and there’s nothing that could change that for the Green Devils after a run of 1 win in the last 23 rounds. Last time around lost 1-3 on their visit to Cheltenham. Even the fact that this was a local derby failed to inspire Forest Green’s dejected and disinterested crew.

The manager already started trusting some youngsters as he starts to think about what squad he will have next season in the lower division. This trend is likely to continue. Star playmaker Stevenson is out injured but there are no other serious health issues.

Oxford

Oxford opened a 3-point lead over the relegation zone with a decisive 4-0 home win vs Cheltenham in midweek. This first win in months came at the best possible time and the U’s will be pumped up to officially confirm their safety as quickly as possible now.

Oxford’s options for rotation remain seriously restricted with 8 players currently nursing problems and not expected to be available. Among them are regular starters when fit Gorrin (inner midfielder) and O’Donkor (winger).
