Us boss set to ring the changes

06 November 2010 03:00
Oxford manager Chris Wilder will make changes for his side's FA Cup trip to Burton. Wilder saw his side lose their fourth game in five matches at home to Torquay on Tuesday and is determined to shake up his squad. Simon Clist played 90 minutes for the Us` reserves in midweek on his comeback from injury and could be recalled into the starting line-up. Mark Creighton may also be thrown back into the first-team mix after missing the home defeat to the Gulls through suspension but Jake Wright is unavailable as he serves the second game of a three-match ban. Damien Batt made his return on Tuesday after recovering from ankle ligament damage but his place may be under threat from Ben Purkiss after his own goal set Torquay on their way to three points at the Kassam Stadium. Josh Payne should be okay to start on Sunday after feeling no ill-effects of an ankle problem, and Alfie Potter and Sam Deering are pushing for starts after recent substitute appearances.
