Oxford United welcome 2,000 fans back to the Kassam Stadium tonight when they take on Northampton Town (7.45pm)

TEAM NEWS
Defender Rob Atkinson will have a late fitness test after picking up a hip injury when landing awkwardly during the draw at Blackpool on Saturday. The former Eastleigh centre half is rated 50/50 and John Mousinho stands by to continue alongside captain Elliott Moore if required.

Striker Sam Winnall is back in full training and may make the bench although he is more likely to be part of the squad at Bristol Rovers on Saturday. Malachi Napa took an important step yesterday when he reurned to the training pitches while Cameron Brannagan gets closer to a return and looks stronger with each session.

Hear from Karl Robinson, Jordan Obita and John Mousinho in iFollow where you can view the whole game live.

THE OPPOSITION

Northampton have Cian Bolger, Joe Martin and Shaun McWilliams suspended and Alan Sheehan a doubt.

“We’ve got a lot of players unavailable but whatever team we put out we will be competitive,” Manager Keith Curle said.
