Match Preview

Capaldi still missing for Us Tony Capaldi's Oxford debut will not come this weekend against Bradford as a back injury continues to keep the defender out. The former Northern Ireland international left-back arrived from Morecambe on a free but has missed the first two games, both of which resulted in losses for the Us. Striker Tom Craddock will join Capaldi on the sidelines and is also yet to feature this term. Craddock, who struck 13 goals in last season's League Two campaign, continues to be hampered by a knee injury. But boss Chris Wilder could welcome back local boy Paul McLaren after the midfielder missed the first two games. Oxford took Cardiff to extra time in the Carling Cup on Wednesday with a largely unchanged side from their opening-day defeat to Rotherham. Bradford pair David Syers and Steve Williams are both doubtful. Midfielder Syers damaged his medial knee ligament in the midweek Carling Cup defeat at Leeds and will have a scan, while centre-back Williams has suffered a recurrence of the thigh strain that hindered him during the close season. Manager Peter Jackson is expected to hand a starting place to Ritchie Jones, a free summer signing from Oldham who has recovered from a calf problem, should Syers fail to make it. Defender Luke Oliver, fit again following a foot injury, could make his first appearance of the season if Williams is ruled out. Otherwise, Jackson has no new injury concerns and is not expected to make too many changes after his side turned in an impressive display against Leeds, with on-loan Tottenham goalkeeper Oscar Jansson expected to retain his place.

Match Report

Hannah to the rescue for Bantams Second-half substitute Ross Hannah snatched a point for Bradford as they came back to draw 1-1 at Oxford. The striker had only been on the pitch four minutes when he ghosted in to prod the ball home from five yards after Nialle Rodney's flick-on. A point was no more than City deserved after a strong fightback in the second half as they pressed hard for an equaliser. Midfielder Simon Heslop fired Oxford into the lead with an outstanding goal after 28 minutes. He drove forward 30 yards and then, with City's defenders backing off, unleashed a low 25-yard shot past keeper Martin Hansen and into the bottom corner. Bradford twice went close to netting from free-kicks before the break. Michael Flynn forced a good save from Ryan Clarke with a fierce shot, then 10 minutes later Robbie Threlfall's curling left-footed effort landed on the roof of the net. After Heslop had broken the deadlock for the U's, his Oxford team-mates kept trying their luck with efforts from distance, Asa Hall going close on one occasion. But City dominated much of the second half without being able to finish off their chances. Centre-half Luke Oliver planted a free header wide at a corner and Flynn's glancing header forced Clarke to save at his near post. The result leaves both sides still looking for their first win of the season, but Peter Jackson's Bradford will go away much the happier. end
