It's more of the same for Oxford United's trip to York

Banbury Cake: Oxford United defender Johnny Mullins is reluctatnt to look beyond today's game at York Oxford United defender Johnny Mullins is reluctatnt to look beyond today's game at York

Chris Wilder has the luxury of being able to name an unchanged side when Oxford United visit York City today.

With no fresh injury concerns, the only players unavailable are long-term absentees Alfie Potter, Andy Whing and Jon Meades.

It is likely to mean the U’s start with the same XI which beat Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 a week ago.

Victory would see United top the table at Christmas after they were replaced by Chesterfield who won 2-0 at Exeter last night.

The leaders at that stage in the last seven League Two seasons have gone on to win promotion, but Johnny Mullins is cautious.

“It’s always good to be top,” he said. “But it’s so tight that you just look at it as another three points.”

York have won just once in 13 games and are without banned striker Ryan Bowman, plus injured defenders Danny Parslow and Chris Smith.

TODAY’S SQUADS

York City: from McCarey, Oyebanjo, Lowe, McGurk, Davies, Carson, Montrose, White-house, Brobbel, Jarvis, Fletcher, O’Neill, Clay, Platt, Murray, Puri, Coulson, Chambers, Dickinson.

Oxford Utd: from Clarke, Hunt, Mullins, Wright, Newey, Williams, Hall, Rose, Ruffels, Kitson, Constable, Smalley, Rigg, Marsh, O’Dowda, Davies, Raynes, Bevans, Long, Crocombe.
