Match Preview

Craddock returns as U`s look for New Year joy Oxford welcome back striker Tom Craddock for their New Year`s Day clash against Southend. Craddock had to wait until Tuesday's win against Macclesfield to serve a one-match ban following a string of postponements. But the forward is available once again and manager Chris Wilder is delighted to have the 24-year-old back, saying: "Tom is a really good player and with him back it adds to the competition up front. "Competition is good as the players realise that they need to play well to keep their place in the side." Jake Wright is fit enough to take a place in the squad after recovering from a broken foot, although he may have to settle for a place on the bench. Wilder is unlikely to have Leigh Franks fit, however, as the defender remains a doubt with a hamstring problem. Goalkeeper Glenn Morris is expected to return to Southend`s starting line-up. Morris has been sidelined with an ankle injury but the Blues' last two matches against Wycombe and Barnet were postponed, allowing the stopper more time to recover. Manager Paul Sturrock will, though, be without defender Peter Gilbert who sits out the last of his three-game ban following his red card at Stevenage in November. On-loan Peterborough midfielder Josh Simpson was replaced at half-time at Cheltenham last time out due to an ankle injury but should feature. Centre-half Bilel Mohsni is also struggling with an ankle injury and could face a late fitness test, while fellow defender Mark Phillips (hernia) is edging closer to a return to action.

Match Report

Shrimpers end U's run Southend ended Oxford's three-game winning streak with a 2-0 win - a repeat of their scoreline at Cheltenham in their last match on December 14. Two first-half goals did the trick, though the second one looked a fluke. Barry Corr fired them into the lead on 18 minutes with a low shot through a sea of legs after Blair Sturrock saw his shot blocked following a corner. Right-back Sean Clohessy doubled the Blues' lead when his cross from near the touchline 35 yards out drifted over Oxford keeper Ryan Clarke and went in off a post. And his reaction indicated he hadn't meant it as a shot. Oxford seldom got their game going, though James Constable planted a header wide from Ben Purkiss's cross in the first half, and Steve Maclean was unlucky with a far-post header that came back off the woodwork. Southend controlled the midfield, however, and in the second half, as Oxford pressed forward, they had further chances on the break, with Clarke saving from Sturrock and Corr. The busy Sturrock also went close when he lobbed goalkeeper Clarke in the dying seconds.
