We look ahead to Saturday's Sky Bet League 2 game as the U's face the Pilgrims• Hylton sits it out
• 'Stay strong' says Appleton
• Tareiq and McCormick back to face the U's
• Read all about it in the matchday magazine
The U's' top scorer picked up his tenth yellow card of the season during the 1-0 win at Bury last weekend and misses out against the Pilgrims as well as Tuesday's home game against Hartlepool.
Boss Michael Appleton must decide between loan signing Armand Gnanduillet, Will Hoskins and James Roberts, who scored a great goal to win the game between the two sides at Home Park earlier in the season. One other option could be a return to the starting line-up for Callum O'Dowda after his winner at Gigg Lane last Saturday.
Plymouth boss John Sheridan welcomes Olly Lee back into the squad after a three-game suspension and the Birmingham loanee is expected to replace former U's midfielder Lee Cox, who has a stomach strain.
Seventeen-goal top scorer Reuben Reid, once a United trialist, will be fit after a foot injury, while the Green Army will be out on force with over 1,000 away fans expected.
"While we have got something to aim for I think it's good for the supporters," said Sheridan. "They have got a bit of belief and they have been right behind us all season. I know we will have a big support at Oxford."
"Hopefully we can carry on winning and give them something at the end of the season. That's the time to celebrate."
Tareiq Holmes-Dennis and Luke McCormick are both expected to play against their former club but striker Deane Smalley is out for the season after suffering cruciate ligament damage in December.
The club shop currently has a half-price sale on home and away kits. Make sure you pay them a visit on Saturday.
Fans in the Family Area can join us in Olly's Den once again (weather permitting). This brand new area, now astroturfed, features table tennis, shooting tests, player visits and giant games and is free to enter. Meet Olly and Olivia the Ox and enjoy the build up to kick-off in Olly's Den.
