Oxford boss Chris Wilder looks set to name an unchanged starting 11.

James Constable marked his recall with the first goal and an influential performance at Torquay and the former Kidderminster striker is likely to get the nod again alongside Alfie Potter.

But left-back Tony Capaldi looks set to miss out with a back injury which forced the Northern Ireland international to be substituted just nine minutes into the match.

There could be a recall for Liam Davis but Lewis Montrose will miss out with a hamstring injury.

Goalkeeper Ryan Clarke (shoulder), striker Justin Richards (knee) and midfielder Peter Leven (knee) remain sidelined.

The U's have taken 13 points from a possible 18 in their last six matches to move up to 10th place in the league.

Barnet have a host of players close to returning from injury.

Strikers Jake Hyde, Craig Beattie (both hamstring), Jon Nurse (concussion) and Ishmail Kamara (shoulder) are all in contention after spells on the sidelines.

However, player-boss Edgar Davids is unlikely to tinker with his starting line-up after a thumping 4-1 win over Morecambe at the weekend.

Dani Lopez grabbed a hat-trick while youngster Luke Gambin scored on his full debut so they are set to keep their places in attack.

Midfielder John Oster is progressing well after a hamstring injury but will not be ready while forwards Ricky Holmes (foot) and Steve Kabba (knee) are long-term absentees along with back-up goalkeeper Liam O'Brien (groin).
