Cambridge missing loan duo once again

Cambridge will again be without on-loan pair Ryan Ledson and Shane O'Neill, who are on international duty, for Easter Monday's home game against Oxford.

Everton midfielder Ledson is away with England Under-19s, while defender O'Neill, who is on loan from Apollon Limassol, is with the United States' Under-23s.

Left-back Max Clark could be in contention after signing on loan from Hull and making his debut as a substitute in Good Friday's 3-0 defeat by Bristol Rovers - a game which Elliot Omozusi missed through illness.

Ryan Donaldson continues his recovery from a knee problem. Fellow midfielder Conor Newton remains out due to a back-related hamstring injury, while forward Barry Corr (knee) and defender Greg Taylor (ankle) are long-term absentees.

Second-placed Oxford have appealed the red card given to John Lundstram in the 1-1 draw with Stevenage.

The midfielder was sent off for a tackle on Michael Tonge in just the 16th minute, which if upheld in a decision on Sunday will see him serve a three-match ban - including the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final against Barnsley at Wembley.

Midfielder Callum O'Dowda, defenders Jordan Evans and Jonjoe Kenny are all away on international duty.

Jake Wright and Sam Long were both back in the squad against Stevenage following injury to boost manager Michael Appleton's defensive options.
