Double change for Oxford. Leven and Rigg on for O'Brien and Heslop

United trying to get back into this, but are still to have a shot on target
Attendance here today is 6,032 (393 from Bradford)
GOAL: Oxford 0, Bradford 1 - Andrew Davies 51 minutes
Clarke saves Gary Jones's free-kick
Under way again here with no changes at half-time
Half-time here and it's 0-0. A fair reflection on a bitty opening period.
Both sides struggling to keep possession at the moment. A very scrappy encounter
Heslop manages a conversion - I mean shoots well over the bar
Good work from Damian Batt gives Tony Capaldi the chance to shoot - but his effort is well wide
Ryan Clarke has a let-off after rushing out his area in the 18th minute. Nahki Wells beat him to the ball, but United's keeper retreated quickly enough to save his shot.
Fair to say Bradford have started far the better. United struggling to get any notable possession and when they do get the ball, are giving it away very cheaply
Bradford force the first corner - inside 2 minutes
United kick-off are are attacking towards the open end. That could be crucial come the second half.
Ok, players are out. Not long to go now....United players in their pre-match huddle
Players are in the tunnel. Massive game this for Oxford - can they stop the rot?
@OxfordMailOUFC 2-1 Yellows #winningways #COYY #OUFC— @BH16yellow 22 September 2012
Bradford expected to line up with a 4-4-2 system. McLaughlin; McCardle, Davies, Oliver, Meredith; Atkinson, Jones, Doyle, Reid, Wells, Hanson. Subs: Darby, Ravenhill, Thompson, Connell, Hines, McHugh
Both teams warming up in glorious sunshine. Both goalkeepers no doubt hoping the sun disappears before kick-off
To those of you not here yet, bring a coat. The sun is not as hot as you might think!
Thoughts on the United team? Do we reckon 4-3-3 with Cox, Heslop and Capaldi in midfield? Or 4-4-2 with Potter and Capaldi as wingers?
Oxford subs: Smalley, Rigg, Leven, Brown, Worley, Boateng, Marsh #oufc— @OxfordMailOUFC 22 September 2012
Oxford Utd team: Clarke, Batt, Raynes, Wright, O'Brien, Cox, Heslop, Capaldi, Potter, Constable, Craddock #oufc— @OxfordMailOUFC 22 September 2012
An hour to kick-off here at the Kassam Stadium - what is the vibe ahead this game? How crucial is it for Oxford United's season?
