Oxford United welcome league leaders Plymouth Argyle to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday (3pm)
The U's have a clean bill of health other than Joel Coper who has been struggling with a chest injury.
The Northern Irishman is expected to train today and that would leave the U's with a full squad to choose from. Gavin Whyte and Marcus McGuane are fully fit after covid self-isolation, Sam Winnall and Billy Bodin return after non-covid illness and Jamie Hanson is available for the first time this season after a successful operation on a dislocated shoulder.
See Karl, Gavin Whyte and Simon Eastwood all previewing the game in iFollow.
A win over Burton moved Plymouth to the top of the table and the Pilgims are unbeaten since the opening day of the season
“It feels good, whether it’s for a short time or a long time – a month, a week, two weeks, whatever it is" Manager Ryan Lowe said.
“We are up there for a reason because we deserve to be there. We are winning games of football and it means a lot to the club. But we can’t get too carried away. Yeah, we are top of the league for the time being. We have just got to keep working hard, keep doing the right things.
“There are teams with games to catch up on, and that’s fine. All we can do is worry about ourselves. If we are there for a week, two weeks, a month, three months it doesn’t really matter. It’s where you are at the end of the season. So we will enjoy this moment and just keep working hard and moving on.”
Tickets are available from oufctickets.co.uk where you can print at home or download to your phone or you can call 01865 337533
