Oxford will have Dave Kitson available when they welcome Southend to the Kassam after the striker served his one-match ban for five yellow cards.

Manager Chris Wilder also has fellow forward James Constable back in contention after a good week of training. The former Kidderminster striker made an appearance from the bench at Hartlepool last weekend, just three weeks after chipping a bone in his foot.

Also available again is Max Crocombe. The goalkeeper had been sidelined with a shoulder injury but looks set to sit on the bench after on-loan shotstopper Shwan Jalal returned to parent club Bournemouth.

Captain Jake Wright and Jon Meades are still sidelined while Andy Whing serves the second match of his three-game suspension.
