AARON Martin is set for his first league start of the season for Oxford United at Plymouth Argyle.

The 28-year-old is in line to partner John Mousinho at centre back, replacing the injured Curtis Nelson, who is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles.

Martin has been limited to two substitute appearances in Sky Bet League One this season, but is United’s only other fit centre back with doubts over Mike Williamson and Christian Ribeiro.

Plymouth’s Ryan Taylor is unlikely to feature against his former club after suffering a setback in his recovery from a broken ankle, but Graham Carey returns from suspension.


Plymouth Arg: from Matthews, Sawyer, Songo’o, Edwards, Bradley, Sinclair, Carey, Grant, Fox, Diagouraga, Jervis, Cooper, Miller, Sarcevic, Ainsworth, Lameiras, Wylde, Blissett, Fletcher.

Oxford Utd: from Eastwood, Tiendalli, Martin, Mousinho, Ricardinho, Rothwell, Ledson, Ruffels, Henry, Payne, Thomas, Obika, Mowatt, Xemi, Carroll, Williamson, Ribeiro, Shearer.
