Oxford United travel to Accrington Stanley on Saturday (3pm)
The U's welcome Yanic Wildschut and Josh Murphy into the squad after injuries that have limited Murphy to cameo roles and Wildschut to the treatment room so far this season.
The pair will not be rushed into action but could be on the bench for the U's who look to extend an eight game unbeaten run across all competitions.
Midfielder Cameron Brannagan stands by for his 200th start. See Cameron, Simon Eastwood and Karl Robinson all previewing the game in iFollow right now.
Accrington Boss John Coleman is looking for his side to build on three 1-0 wins in three different competitions.
A 1-0 win over Cambridge two weeks ago was Stanley’s first three points in eight league games while they progressed in both the Papa Johns Trophy and into the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup with 1-0 victories in the last week.
“1-0 is my favourite result! I think 1-0 wins are character building,” Coleman told the official Accrington website. “You take the lead, try and get a second and it’s vital you keep the ball out at the other end and, when you have managed to do it, it gives you heart when you go 1-0 again that you have been in that situation before and can see it through. Winning is always beneficial and we have to hope we can translate cup form into league form.
“We have set a standard with our work ethic and concentration levels and that’s got to continue, if not get better.”
“We haven’t won enough at home this season for me. We had exciting draws which have felt like a win but we have got to win home games if we are to be successful. We will have the Clayton End behind us on Saturday and Oxford will feel the full force of that.”
We have been allocated 500 tickets in the Coppice Terrace and 563 seated tickets in the Studio Stand.
