Oxford United look to end a great week on a high when they welcome Gillingham to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday.
United boss Karl Robinson is in the envious position of having to choose from either the bulk of the team that secured a record 6-0 win at Lincoln on Saturday or the eleven that beat Premier League West Ham 4-0 on Wednesday.
Elliott Moore, Sam Long, Mark Sykes, Shandon Baptiste, Rob Hall and Anthony Forde all came into the side in midweek and did well but Chris Cadden, John Mousinho, Alex Gorrin, Ben Woodburn, Tariqe Fosu and James Henry will be hoping for a recall to the league side while Matty Taylor scored in both games!
George Thorne is the man to miss out after dislocating his shoulder on Wednesday, joining Jamie Hanson and Malachi Napa on the injured list

Gills Manager Steve Evans is looking forward to facing the in-form U’s.
“They were very good (on Saturday) and the reality of it was that it could have been more” he said. “Was it Lincoln having a complete off day or was it Oxford having a good day? They have got good players and will test us fully. You can you see how sometimes it is, when goals come at key stages, they get a couple of lucky goals in the second half and Lincoln dip a little. Self belief kicks in and that’s a big thing.
“But it won’t affect what we do, it may affect what personnel and what shape we play, because that is part of the analysis you do for every game but it won’t make us fear them.
“They had a few players missing early season, key players. Karl has got one or two in since then as well. When you can attract the likes of the boy from Liverpool (Ben Woodburn) and the boy Matty Taylor, who came out of Bristol City, you have top players. We know how tough it will be for us.”
