Oxford United look to use the momentum of a Carabao Cup win over Millwall in midweek to help them get back to winning ways int he league this Saturday.
Matty Taylor is out for a few weeks after picking up a groin injury against his former club Bristol Rovers last Saturday. Scans have revealed that the damage is not as severe as first feared but the striker will definitely miss next week's games at home to Norwich City Under 21s and the trip to Fleetwood Town.
However United could have Dan Agyei in the squad for the first time since he arrived from Burnley
Alex Gorrin (hamstring) and Cameron Brannagan (groin) are doubts but Shandon Baptiste made his return after a long lay-off in midweek and Mark Sykes made a scoring return in midfield against Millwall.

Coventry have started the season strongly despite a summer of upheaval that saw eleven players leave and ten new faces arrive. Former United player Junior Brown is the latest to depart, joining Scunthorpe United on loan this week, while midfielder Callum O’Hare joined the club from Aston Villa last week on a season-long loan.
“When Callum O’Hare came in we saw that as the last piece of business but you never know, something might happen." Boss Mark Robins said this week.“We have got to get through the weekend in terms of injuries and see where we are after that but there are no plans to bring anyone in at this stage.”
Coventry have now sold the last ticket of their allocation and therefore any fans looking to purchase tickets for Saturday's game must have previous booking history at the OUFC Ticket Office
To do so fans must have previously purchased an OUFC match ticket on or before August 13th 2019 OR purchasers must have an OX postcode.
With database and security checks we strongly advise fans to arrive as early as possible.
As usual there will be Supporter Liaison Officers and Stewards all around the ground to help you with any questions.
The new OX2 football service runs from Didcot to the Kassam Stadium via Great Western Park, Steventon and Abingdon and returns after the match. The OX2 will run for all weekend and bank holiday league matchdays this season and the new route strengthens Thames Travel’s Football Specials service with the OX3 and OX7 continuing this season.
The OX3 and OX7 services bring fans to and from United home games from Carterton, Brize Norton, Witney, Eynsham, Botley, Kidlington, the Banbury Road, Summertown, Marston and Headington.
We are still looking for volunteers to help on the OX2 buses on a matchday. If you are interested contact club secretary Mick Brown on firstname.lastname@example.org
The car parks at the ground will be open as usual and we will tweet (@OUFCOfficial) with traffic and parking updates.
