OXFORD City’s Mark Scott is set to continue in goal when they host Gainsborough Trinity in Skrill North tonight.

The fit-again keeper replaced on-loan Forest Green stopper Matt Bulman at Gloucester City on Tuesday and it paid off as City recorded a 2-0 win to move within two points of safety.

“I just felt that having conceded 11 goals in our last three games, we ought to bring him back,” said manager Mike Ford.

“A win moves us out of the relegation zone, but we’re just thinking about getting points.”

City will be without Andy Ballard (knee) and Lee Henderson (ham-string), while Chris Willmott (dead leg) faces a fitness test.

Oxford City (v Gainsborough Trinity, home): from Scott, Benjamin, Stonehouse, Pook, Learoyd, Preece, McEachran, Mullings, Symons, Pond, Winters, Solomon-Otabor, Basham, Cook, Jackson, Bulman.
