Capaldi still crocked
Oxford will continue to be unable to call on Tony Capaldi when they face Hereford at the Kassam Stadium this weekend.
Defender Capaldi has been ruled out for up to two months after picking up a knee injury in a reserve-team match 10 days ago and will not feature for the U's.
Otherwise, manager Chris Wilder has no new injury or suspension issues to deal with, although striker Deane Smalley has joined Bradford on loan until the end of the season and will therefore not be available.
Fellow forward James Constable will start for the U's, however, after turning down an approach by Swindon on Thursday. A bid was accepted by Oxford for the frontman, but Constable chose to stay put.
Simon Clist has been ruled out of a return to his former employers as Hereford look to secure a third successive away win.
The midfielder, who turned his loan move into a permanent switch earlier this month, slotted in at full-back for last weekend's impressive 1-0 victory at relegation rivals Dagenham but was forced off just before half-time nursing a groin injury.
Joe Heath continues to miss out with a groin problem of his own, while fellow defender Ryan Green is rated 50/50 as he looks to recover from a knock which has forced him out of the last two matches.
Benoit Dalibard serves the second game of a three-match ban picked up following his dismissal against Bristol Rovers.
Seven-goal top scorer Tom Barkhuizen will be hoping for a recall having been dropped to the bench at Victoria Road last Saturday.
Duberry in afternoon to remember
Oxford centre-half Michael Duberry scored a bizarre hat-trick of sorts as he netted two own goals against Hereford before salvaging a late 2-2 draw at the other end.
The former Chelsea and Leeds defender put past U's keeper Ryan Clarke with an attempted first-half clearance, cancelling out Jon-Paul Pittman's rifled shot out of nothing from 25 yards.
Duberry then sent a header from Joe Colbeck's 86th-minute cross into his own net, but he rescued a point - and saved some of his own blushes - by turning in a low right-wing cross from Tom Craddock.
Bulls stopper Adam Bartlett twice denied U's top scorer James Constable, who had turned down a #250,000 move to Swindon in the week, and produced a superb double save early in the second half.
Although his best stop came 10 minutes from time when he pushed away a fierce Simon Heslop drive that seemed to swerve at the last moment, helping to earn away-day specialists Hereford another good result on the road.
