Oxford United head for Southend United tonight in EFL League 1 looking to build on a four game unbeaten run.
Wes Thomas returns to the squad after a calf injury that ruled him out of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Charlton. Thomas lost his place to Ryan Taylor and with Kane Hemmings also impressing as a sub on Saturday there are plenty of attacking options for boss Michael Appleton.
More good news came with defender Curtis Nelson likely to be back in training this week, leaving only Rob Hall and Christian Ribeiro on the sidelines.

Southend slipped to a 4-0 defeat against Northampton Town on Saturday and midfielder Ryan Leonard is among those looking to make amends this evening.
“Saturday wasn’t good enough, especially in the second half.” He said. “But luckily for us the games are coming are thick and fast and Tuesday night gives us a chance to quickly put it right.
“We need the fans for every single game this season and we know that in the last few away games we have let them down. We need to give them something to shout about and in the last two away games we haven’t done that. But against Millwall we did do that and they showed us what they can do for us, so we need them again on Tuesday night.”
