KARL Robinson admits Saturday’s derby against Swindon Town will play a part in his team selection for tonight’s trip to Portsmouth.

The Oxford United boss has no new injury worries after all those who featured in the win over Wigan Athletic came through unscathed.

While the squad is the same, Robinson hinted that the upcoming visit of Swindon could mean there are some changes to the starting XI.

“The team may raise one or two eyebrows, but we think it’ll be able to cope,” he said.

“You’ve got to pick a team that you think has got the capability to put a dent in Portsmouth.

“We’ve also got to have one eye on Saturday.”

Robinson was pleased to see Sean Clare deliver an impressive cameo on the right wing against Wigan after starting the season at right back.

The 24-year-old dropped to the bench at the DW Stadium, but entered the fray with 12 minutes left and set up James Henry for United’s second goal.

His manager said: “He’s played the last eight or nine games of the Scottish season at right back.

“We love what he did last year (at Hearts), we always knew he had the capability to play higher up the pitch.

“He’s one of the fastest players at the club, so between him, Dan Agyei and Mide (Shodipo) it’s some race.

“He gives us that option which is really key.”

Former United winger Ryan Williams is in contention to start for Portsmouth after recovering from a hip injury that ruled him out of Saturday’s 4-1 win over Crewe Alexandra.

Winger Michael Jacobs is sidelined with a knee injury.
