While Phil Parkinson's men head into this Saturday's clash off the back of two successive victories, opponents Oxford have lost their last four league games in a row.
Oxford did start their league campaign with three consecutive wins before their downturn in form, however, and Meredith admits City know they will be in for a challenging afternoon this Saturday.
The Australian-born left back told Bantams Player: The manager has already drummed into us that this Saturday will be a testing and tough fixture for us.
"He has got us well-prepared for what they are going to throw at us.
"We know we have a challenge ahead of us but we all want to bring the high spirits we've had from our recent home matches into this Saturday."
