Northampton will hand a debut to striker Shaun Harrad, who joined from Burton this week.Fellow strikers Leon McKenzie (thigh) and Billy McKay (calf) are both pushing for a starting role.

Oxford are set to include striker Steve MacLean, who has extended his loan spell from Plymouth.

Defender Djoumin Sangare is pushing for a start after making his a debut as a substitute in the 2-1 win against Bradford last week.

Northampton Town manager Ian Sampson told BBC Radio Northampton: "It's a big game on Saturday against Oxford, our local rivals.

"There'll be a big crowd. They're bringing some good away fans.

"I'm not having to rely on youth teamers filling the bench. Hopefully the pros will be fit and that will give me a few more options."
