JON Obika is looking to help Oxford United finish an excellent week in Portugal on a high when they face Hull City tonight (6.30pm).

The U’s are returning to the Ferreiras Stadium in Albufeira, where they impressed during Wednesday night’s goalless draw with Middlesbrough.

Obika has enjoyed the chance to get to know his new teammates during the training camp, having only signed last week.

The friendly with Hull is the final run-out before the squad fly home tomorrow, so the former Swindon Town striker is focused on signing off in the right manner.

He said: “Middlesbrough was like a chess game, it wasn’t like a League One game, but it was good to implement our style.

He said: “I’m feeling very fit and raring to go.

“We just need to continue the philosophy which has been implemented by the gaffer.

“If we can do that on Saturday I think we’ll do well.”

He added: “This week has been very tough, probably more mentally than anything.

“Physically we’re all at a level where we can push each other, but mentally when the heat is on it can be very tough.

“Once you get on the pitch you can see who you can gel with.

“There’s a lot of quality in the team, so I’m looking forward to bringing it all together.”

Manager Pep Clotet is planning to shuffle his side around, with players who came on as substitutes against Middlesbrough in line to start tonight.

He plans to speak with triallist Mike Williamson tomorrow about the potential of negotiating a deal, but minor aches and pains will prevent the centre back playing against Hull.

New signing Dwight Tiendalli is also not ready to play, but otherwise there are no injury problems, so winger James Henry is likely to make his debut.

Clotet said: “Our goal is to keep playing the same with the same principles we showed on Wednesday.

“I think it will be harder because we’ve been here longer and the legs will have more (tiredness) in them, but our goal is to put more minutes in and have a good attitude.

“It might well be that James can have a few minutes, whereas with Dwight he’s come a bit later, so we will give him more time.”
