Bristol City vs. Oxford United

Kassam stadium

12th Aug 2014

19:45hrs

Bristol City v Oxford United

Michael Appleton will have been pleased with the performance at the weekend even though they left the game with no points on board.

Two changes from Saturdays team George Long will not be allowed to play due to conditions in his loan move from Sheffield United. So New Zealand U20 international Max Crocombe comes in to replace him. Michael Raynes is an injury doubt after the weekend so Jonny Mullins is likely to replace him.

Steve Cotterill has an impressive win rate of 40.76% in 628 games in charge as a manager. With a win away to Sheffield United Bristol got off to th eperfect start.

Although Cotterill has stated that chances will be given to a few players that were not involved on Saturday.
