The U's are likely to give game time to a number of players who have been on the bench recently with Tony McMahon likely to come back into the side at right-back after a rib injury and Luke Garbutt stepping up at left-back. Ricky Holmes could start after being on the bench for the last two games while youngsters Aaron Heap and Armani Little step up in to the squad from the under 23s.
