Match Preview: Bristol Rovers v Oxford United

13 October 2017

Take a look at this weekend's opponents, Oxford United.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's side head into Saturday's game on the back of last week's 6-0 victory over Northampton Town and are looking to pick up a third straight win on the bounce at the Mem, following recent victories over Plymouth Argyle and Blackpool F.C.

Darrell Clarke's View

Opposition: Oxford United currently occupy 10th position in SkyBet League One, with an identical points tally as Rovers, as both teams have picked up 18 points from their opening twelve games. So far this season, Oxford have picked up five wins, three draws and four defeats under new Manager, Pep Clotet.

Dangerman - Wes Thomas

Striker Wes Thomas [pictured above] signed for Oxford United in June 2016. After scoring on his United debut in the first game of the season against Chesterfield, Wes was injured in October 2016, missing the remainder of the season.

Following a lengthy spell on the sidelines, Thomas has come back with a bang this season hitting the back of the net on five occasions for the U's including three in his last four League One outings.  

Last Time Out: Goals from Ollie Clarke at Stuart Sinclair secured victory for Rovers when the side last met back in March.
