Oxford still have a number of injury concerns in their final home game of the season.

Most of manager Chris Wilder's concerns relate to defenders, with Djoumin Sangare (metatarsal) out for the season and Damian Batt having hobbled off in the 2-2 draw at Barnet.

Mitchell Hanson missed the Bees clash after being stretchered off in the previous match following a clash of heads.

He could return but Harry Worley may be handed another start following his solid display at Underhill on Easter Monday.

Worley was selected after returning from a two-match ban, but the injury-hit Us could only name six players on the bench.

Defender Ben Purkiss and midfielder Asa Hall are pushing for starts.

Adam Watts could come back into the Lincoln team.

The defender has missed the last three matches due to illness and in his absence the Imps have slipped to within just two points of the relegation zone.

If fit, Watts is likely to go straight back into manager Steve Tilson's starting line-up.

Jamie Clapham, Josh O'Keefe, Clark Keltie, Scott Spencer and Drewe Broughton are also available for recalls.

However, Mustapha Carayol is still doubtful with a hamstring injury. The winger missed the home defeat to Cheltenham on Easter

Monday after sustaining the problem against Bury on Friday.

Lincoln could end the weekend in the bottom two should they fail to win and Northampton and Barnet win their respective games.
