Hackney hopes to impress as Millers comes to town
Oxford boss Chris Wilder could hand Simon Hackney his home debut against Rotherham.
The winger has impressed during his two outings so far, both as a substitute in the away games with Southend and Gillingham, and could be handed his first start in front of his home fans.
Midfielder Josh Payne is a doubt with an ankle injury sustained when he was on the receiving end of a bad tackle in the 3-0 midweek reserve-team defeat against Ipswich.
Defender Simon Batt, meanwhile, will definitely miss out as he serves the second game of a three-match ban following his red card during the 2-1 defeat at Southend on February 1.
The U`s will be looking to end a run of three league games without a win.
Winger Omar Daley could be handed his Rotherham debut when Ronnie Moore's side travel to the Kassam Stadium.
The 29-year-old Jamaica international will go straight into the Millers squad to face the Us following his arrival on loan from Bradford until the end of the season.
However, Kevin Ellison will not be available for selection following his move in the opposite direction on a similar deal.
Goalkeeper Andy Warrington is the only fresh injury worry but he should be fit to retain his place between the sticks despite a cut head suffered during the 3-1 defeat at Gillingham in midweek.
Jamie Annerson will be on standby just in case the 34-year-old fails to recover in time.
Skipper Ryan Cresswell is making good progress on his return from a broken collarbone but is still weeks away from a return to first-team action.
Kennedy off as Oxford win
Rotherham had defender Callum Kennedy sent off as they lost a fifth away game in a row as Oxford claimed a 2-1 win.
Kennedy tugged at Steve MacLean's arm as he darted into the box, and referee Simon Hooper pointed to the spot and brandished the red card to Kennedy, who had been the last man.
MacLean then converted the 64th-minute penalty, although keeper Andy Warrington half-stopped it, only to see the ball spin over the goalline.
Oxford took the lead in the 18th minute with a precise right-footed shot by Simon Heslop from 15 yards, from Jack Midson's cutback.
However, the Millers equalised 18 minutes later when Nicky Law nipped in ahead of U's keeper Ryan Clarke to turn in Kennedy's pass with an angled shot.
James Constable squandered two opportunities to extend Oxford's lead before the finish, and sub Alfie Potter curled a shot wide as Chris Wilder's men continued to push forward.
It was their first win in four games and avenged a 2-1 defeat at Don Valley Stadium in November.
