Oxford manager Chris Wilder has admitted he needs to bring in new players to freshen up his depleted squad.
The Us suffered their third successive defeat against Burton in the FA Cup on Sunday and Wilder is looking to bring at least two players before Saturday's game at Rotherham.
"We need help," he told the Oxford Mail.
"We're out of the cup and I've got no other thought at the moment than that we're a losing football club.
"We have to change it around and we've talked about it. It's been a real difficult and frustrating week because nobody wants to let anybody go and get cup-tied.
"But there will be certainly two players, and possibly three, coming into the football club next week to bolster us up because we need help."
