GRAHAM Alexander is predicting another decent encounter when his Fleetwood Town visit Oxford United tomorrow.

The teams produced an enthralling clash when they met in Lancashire last November.

United trailed at the break to Steven Schumacher’s free-kick, but hit back to produce an excellent spell of sustained pressure.

It ended with Dave Kitson claiming an equaliser a minute from the end of normal time.

Alexander, who played with U’s head coach Gary Waddock at Luton Town, does not believe it gives the hosts a psychological advantage, but the Cod Army boss expects a decent game.

He said: “They probably deserved their equaliser.

“We’ve been there a couple of times when we’ve been close to beating the teams around us.

“It’ll have no bearing on Saturday’s game.

“It’ll still be two good teams, like it was last time.”
