Leven returns for Oxford United at Plymouth

PETER Leven makes a surprise return to Oxford United’s starting line-up in the only change for the crucial trip to Plymouth Argyle.

The midfielder picked up a nasty knee injury at Northampton Town on Good Friday, but is fit enough to start after missing just two games.

Damian Batt makes way, with Andy Whing switching to right back to accommodate Leven in a three-man midfield with Asa Hall and Adam Chapman.

Scott Rendell is again preferred to James Constable up front, with Dean Morgan, who has recovered from a minor groin strain, and Cristian Montano on the wings.

Former Plymouth defender Tony Capaldi is named among the substitutes along with Simon Heslop, who has been out since January with a foot injury.

United, who are on a four-game winless streak, need a victory to make sure they stay in the npower League Two play-off places.

It is also a big game for Plymouth, who will be safe from relegation with maximum points this afternoon.

Oxford Utd: Brown, Whing, Duberry, Wright, Davis, Chapman, Leven, Hall, Montano, Rendell, Morgan.

Substitutes: Crocombe, Capaldi, Constable, Heslop, Johnson.

I know we could only draw today but why is promotion so important for us this year? For many games now this year we have looked nervy and not able to break down good teams, we have missed Potter immensely. On the bright side we have made improvements on last year. What will be will be. COYY
