NICKY Law has more reasons than most for wanting City to put it right at their Oxford bogey ground tonight.

The Bantams have miserable memories of the Kassam Stadium from last season, losing their unbeaten start in October and then being knocked out of the Checkatrade Trophy quarter-finals.

Law was involved in both – as well as the postponed tie that was farcically called off just eight minutes before kick-off. That day in January is one he will not forget in a hurry.

"I had a court date in Glasgow that morning for a driving offence so I'd flown up the night before," he said.

"I then had to get a plane to Heathrow afterwards and the train to Oxford. I got there just about on time, did the warm-up and then it got called off.

"I laugh about it now but it wasn't funny at the time and we had to go back again the week after. So I feel like I've been there a lot."

Law did score the winner at Valley Parade on Good Friday but felt Oxford were up with Sheffield United as the best side City faced.

The midfielder said: "Oxford probably felt they were unlucky to lose at ours. They looked a very good team.

"Obviously they've lost a few key players but have brought a lot of new ones in. I'm led to believe they play a good style under the new manager and had a good win at the weekend.

"It's always a tough game down there but it's a nice pitch and we're playing a lot better now as well."

City head back south brimming with confidence from the 3-1 win at Peterborough, although Stuart McCall could make a couple of changes.

Left back Adam Chicksen is suspended after his red card but the Bantams boss is also wary of the toll it can take on the players performing at such a high tempo.

McCall said: "Last year we looked at freshening things up when you have two away journeys like this close together. I think Oxford will do it with their squad.

"We are going well up front obviously but the four attacking options we had on the bench on Saturday all trained really sharply yesterday.

"We get the results of the GPS (tracking system) now and we are playing at high intensity, so we'll look at that.

"It measures how much ground you cover but is also a good tool to gauge if there's a chance of injury if you do too much.

"We're not overly-guided by science, because you see things with your own eyes, but it is a useful back-up."

Tom Field is the obvious cover to fill in for Chicksen, or McCall could be tempted to move one of his centre halves across and hand Adam Thompson his debut in the middle.

McCall also feels there is a score to settle against another side tipped to be in the promotion mix.

"In both games last season we played well and got nothing," he said.

"Billy Clarke missed a penalty and then we got beaten in the last minute in the league. Then we were down to ten men when Rory (McArdle) was off the pitch and they scored twice in the Checkatrade.

"So we'll settle for a poor performance if it means we get the win this time.

"Oxford play in a different way to Peterborough but they are a dangerous side. I watched their game back against Gillingham and they could have run up way more than three goals."
