Defensive duo missing for U's trip

Left-back Dickson suffered a hamstring injury towards the end of Saturday's 1-0 win at Stockport which could rule him out for the rest of the season. Defender Phillips is set for a scan on the knee injury which kept him out at the weekend amid fears his season could also be over. Fellow centre-half Alan Bennett is available after a one-match ban but Karleigh Osborne will hope Saturday's display will ensure he keeps his place alongside Leon Legge at the back. Midfielder Sam Wood is likely to drop back into defence to replace Dickson. Goalkeeper Nikki Bull remains a long-term absentee after a shoulder operation.
