After a week off Chris Wilder pits his wits against Gary Mills York City in the npower football league. York find themselves in 17th spot after claiming promotion last season via a play off win from the Blue Square Premiership.

The Oxford squad has had a decent week on th etraining ground and sees his team strengthened by the inclusion of Michael Duberry and Tony Capaldi on the training pitch.

York beat Oxford earlier in the season 3-1 so Oxford will be looking for revenge and 3 points.
