Oxford United welcome Shrewsbury Town to the Kassam Stadium tonight in Sky Bet League 1 (7.45pm)

TEAM NEWS
With no new injuries after Saturday's game against Plymouth and Joel Cooper recovering well from a chest injury the only doubt ahead of tonight's game is boss Karl Robinson who will wait on the result of a PCR test before deciding if he can be at the game.

If the result does not come through in time then he will stay away and Craig Short and John Mousinho will be in charge of the side.

Jack Stevens stands by for his 50th league appearance for the U's.

See Jack, Craig Short and Elliott Moore all looking forward to the game in iFollow.

THE OPPOSITION
Shrews Assistant Boss Aaron Wilbraham is well aware that the U’s will want a strong reaction after defeat at home to Plymouth on Saturday

“Oxford lost a few players from last year but still play good football, they are a possession-based side, I know the manager Karl Robinson well from MK Dons,” he said. “He gets his teams playing good stuff, they had a disappointing game on Saturday so will want to bounce back.

“He was assistant under Paul Ince when I was there and I had a little bit of a part in him getting the job really, because he was younger than me and the chairman spoke to me and Dean Lewington about his capabilities. He was a really good coach, Karl, under Paul Ince, he got the job off the back of that.”

The Shrews are without Josh Vela (knee), left-back Luke Leahy (suspended) and both Aaron Pierre and George Nurse are injury doubts.
