Oxford United return to league action when they travel to Fleetwood Town on Saturday (3pm)
United have been excellent on the road so far with wins at Derby and Barnsley and return to action after a blank weekend due to international call ups
United are without the suspended Greg Leigh and Mark Harris after they both received red cards in the last game, at home to Port Vale. Leigh misses one game for two yellow cards, Harris will miss three.
Tyler Goodrham returned early from international duty through injury while Ciaron Brown limped off in Northern Ireland's game last weekend with an ankle problem. Both are doubts but Sam Long returns to the squad after a thigh injury.
"We'd have loved a game last weekend" skipper Eliott Moore told iFollow. "We wanted to bounce back after losing to Port Vale but at the same time we have all had a chance to get a little break and come back fresh. I think the Trophy game at Northampton really showed the strength in depth we have and we have trained really well this week so it's a game we are looking forward to."

Saturday will be new Manager Lee Johnson’s first game in charge after taking over at Highbury.
“When any new manager comes in, everyone gets a fresh slate, and players are often revived and lifted based on the opportunity to impress somebody new” he said. “They will all get the opportunity to do that here, but it’s already a good club. The squad are good, I’ve watched all the games, they’ve been unlucky in a few, and short in others, but there are signs there.
“You want to make your own stamp from day one, but you also have to let the players flourish to play their natural games in the formation you want to play in and that’s the beauty and enjoyment factor of coaching. You get to see this on the grass, not just with their abilities, but also with their attitudes and ability to learn”.
