THREE TO WATCH: OXFORD UNITED

3 March 2017

Take a look at the potential threats in the ranks of Saturday's opponents, Oxford United.

#28 - Chris Maguire - Striker 

The twenty-eight-year-old striker has ten goals to his name so far this season.

The former Scotland international originally joined Oxford on loan from Rotherham last season but made the switch to the Kassam Stadium permanent in February 2016, with his goals in the closing stages of the 2015/16 season aiding Oxford in their promotion to SkyBet League One.

This season the striker was quick off the mark, extending his goal tally to twelve ahead of the turn of the year. 

The striker's last goal came in Oxford's narrow defeat at the hands of Premier League side Middlesborough in the Emirates FA Cup, just over a fortnight ago.


#15 - Kane Hemmings - Striker 

After joining from Dundee in the opening month of the season, the striker has taken well to life in SkyBet League One, scoring fourteen goals in all competitions since his arrival at the Kassam Stadium.

The former Rangers man scored his first goal for Oxford against Rovers when the two sides met at the Mem back in August.

The striker has helped Oxford reach the final of this season's Checkatrade Trophy, scoring a hat-trick against fellow SkyBet League One side Scunthorpe United in the knock-out stages of the competition and was also on the scoresheet in Oxford's victory over Newcastle United in the Emirates FA Cup. 

Hemmings was last on the scoresheet when Oxford defeated MK Dons at the beginning of the February.


#19 - Robert Hall - Forward/Winger

The former West-Ham attacking player is no stranger to Oxford United fans, as he spent two spells on loan at the club earlier in his career and was capped by England up to U19 level.

Now twenty-three, Hall rejoined Oxford on a permanent deal in the summer, but due to injury the midfielder had to delay his return to action until the beginning of November.

Since returning to full fitness the midfielder has held down a regular first team berth at the Kassam and has contributed five goals so far this term, including a strike in Oxford's comfortable 4-0 victory over Chesterfield on Saturday.
